    DRM: Use of Sort Order property?

    928754
      Hi,

      There is a property by the name Sort Order and is a local, hidden and system defined property. Would like to know the use of this property and the usage of the property in DRM.

      Thanks

          The SortOrder is used to determine the sort order for nodes within a hierarchy. You would use the property when you want the nodes under a parent to appear in a certain order. Out of the box sort order is alpha numeric, but you can create a custom sort order.

            Hello experts,

            Is there a way to disable node sorting order or in other word enable sorting in any order the user wants? There is no one particular rule that can be applied. I tried to create a derived Sort property and assigned it a value/formula of just 0 or 1. When I dragged a node around and tried to drop it as a sibling somewhere else higher up in the tree under the same parent, I got this message: "1: The server returned an error processing CopyNodes: Index (zero based) must be greater than or equal to zero and less than the size of the argument list."

            Thank you!

              Have you assigned the newly created Sort property against the Hieararchy?

              Thanks!

                Yes I did. I think what I did wrong was that I needed to set the Prop to Defined instead of Derived. I ended up using the defaul Sort Order property and that worked out. Thanks!
