Letter bar in the main library catalogue. (v3.2)

Clicking on a letter tab will result in the immediate action. The grid displays the library catalogue section where records start with the selected letter (according to the first letter of a primary sort field). You can activate the letter tab if your data is sorted by a text field.

When the Primary Sort Field is not a text field the Letter Tabs become inactive automatically.

Question: I would ask that the Alpha index be added. This way you can go quickly to where you want to go. I very often review my library items by title or author, in this case would like to jump to the section with the selected letter.

Letter tabs feature is added to version 3.2. All tables can display the letter bar option.
