$Users->OrderBy('RealName') does not work as expected

I’ve been fighting with this for 2 hours now - what I thought would be a
simple change. In Elements/SelectOwner, I want to display the RealName’s
of the folks, sorted by Last Name (like it is in the DB).

However, RT won’t let me - $Users->OrderBy(‘RealName’) still returns the
result set ordered by ‘Name’. I even put data into NickName and
OrderBy->(‘NickName’) and ended up with the same results as
OrderBy(‘Name’). Is this a known behaviour, or have I run into a limit in
the current codebase?

OrderBy takes named attributes. perldoc DBIx::SearchBuilder to see how
it works.On Mon, Jul 28, 2003 at 12:11:08PM -0400, Ken Bantoft wrote:
