Sorting item views by date/time fields sorts lexically, not by date value

description

When looking at a list of items in a folder, click on any of the date fields (DateTimeReceived, DateTimeCreated,LastModifiedTime, etc.). The items are sorted by the values in those fields, but they are sorted lexically, i.e. the date/time strings are treated as normal strings and put in alphabetical order. The result is that all the January dates come first, followed by February, etc., regardless of year.
 
This is a great project, by the way. I don't mean to sound ungrateful by filing this issue report. I just thought you'd like to know the error in order to correct it. Thanks for the good work.

Thanks for the feedback and compliments. And thanks for using EWSEditor! I'll look to fix this soon. I've had it on my radar for a while.

Resolved with changeset 17909: Fixed this by adding SortCompare event and logic for DateTime. I thought I'd get this for free by specificing the column's ValueType but oh well.
