    Content Tree - reorder child assets

    bala6
      Hi

      Today I added List of Flex child assets under parent in content Tree . but we need to reorder this child asset in same parent .

      For Example : [Child assets in order from top to bottom in content Tree]

      parent [ child 1 , child 2 ,child 3 ,child 4 ] , I want reorder this child to
      parent [child 3,child 1 ,child 2,child 4 ] .

      Is it possible to do in Fatwire 11G , If yes , how could we implement this feature ? .

      thanks

            Have you tried asset:children to retrieve the assets?

            asset:children
            Queries the AssetRelationTree table and builds a list of child assets for the specified parent asset.

                In the Flex asset model there is not really a good concept of ordering children. All Children are created equally with relation to the Parent. There IS a structure that supports ordering of children in the Page Assets - though they may not be right for your needs.

                Typically, when clients want to 'order' the children under a parent -they end up adding an 'ordering' attribute to the child assets and then write a custom treetab to show sorted. Another way is to get away from the Parent / Child and add an attribute of type Asset to the Parent (multivalued) - that supports ordering - I still think that you would need to write a custom tree tab to enable drag n drop re-ordering though

                  Thanks for your valuable response , your solution custom tree tab with drag/drop the assets will full fill my requirement .
                  But I didn't find out this implementation details in developer guide , please guide me .
