Web Client: Sort Priority not honored in egGrid

Bug Description

Web Client version 3.0.9

When configuring columns in the Check In screen or the Capture Holds screen, the user can set a Sort priority. Once the user navigates away from the screen, the sort priority is no longer honored, and the user must reset the column priority.

To recreate, go into either the Check In screen or Capture Hold screen. Select the column picker drop-down option Configure Columns -> set a Sort priority on one of the columns -> go back into the column picker drop-down and select Save Columns. Navigate away from the screen (or simply refresh the screen), go back into the column configuration option and notice that the sort priority is no longer set.

I tested this extensively in 3.1.5 with spot checks in 3.1.4 and 3.0.9.

1) Pick a grid, any grid -- I looked at all of Circ & Cataloging in 3.1.5
2) Set a sort priority for various columns in Manage Columns (or Configure Columns, if in 3.0.x)
3) Click Actions Menu --> Save Columns
4) In 3.1.x, Sort priority is not saved or honored (problem #1), even though Manage Columns shows the sort value(s) that you entered. 3.0.x does seem to apply the sort order when you save it.
5) If you navigate away from the interface and then back, all sort values return to default & will show as 0 if looked at in Configure Columns (3.0.x) or Manage Columns (3.1.x) - Problem #2

Updating the title to reflect that this seems to be a larger problem.

Patch that addresses the saving of the sort priority in 3.1.x is available here: collab/gmcharlt/lp1790169_eggrid_column_sort_wip. The branch remains WIP since the sort settings are not honored.

We see this behavior in SCLENDS, and I will just add a little heat with this example of why sort is useful (from a reference librarian):

"It’s not bad when you have a patron with just a few items out, but the ILL account can have 20 to 40 items out at any one time. It’s helpful to sort by title to see what’s out."

Thanks to all who are working on this one.
