In a GridPanel which store is a GroupingStore, i have a GroupingView
table_projects = new Ext.grid.GridPanel({
        store: store_projects,
        view: new Ext.grid.GroupingView({
            groupTextTpl: '{text} ( {[]} {[ > 1 ? "projects" : "project"]} )'
The groupField is "status".

store_projects = new{
        url: 'projects.php',
        reader: reader_projects,
        sortInfo: {field: 'date_investment', direction: 'ASC'},
        writer: new
But I would like to have the groups ordered by the "order" of the "satus" which is in a reference table of "status" to which the table "projects" is linked.

SELECT p.project_name, ..., p.status, s.order 
FROM projects p INNER JOIN status s ON s.status = p.status 
ORDER BY s.order
If I put groupField:'order', on every group title, i get the "order" shown (ex. "7" as {text} renders it), but what i would like to have is in fact the associated "status" (ex. "finished") : is there a way to retreive the "status" value of the current row ?

Alternatively, is there a solution to have the groupField set to "status" with the groups being ordered not alphabetically, but by another column (s.order) ?
