NamedViews sorting in WIP

Anything changed with how the NamedViews panel sorts the views?
Here is how it does now:

  • in V6 and before the “z” views would end up at the end of the list… minor thing but with the limited ability to influence this list (no way to sort, reorder or organize in folders), dealing with a lot of views per file we rely on the prefix system and this messes things up a bit…

After looking more into this I see now that WIP does not auto-sort the NamedViews alphabetically anymore, all just gets added to the end of the list and then we can drag to reorder. The above screenshot is from V6 file, order of views is reversed. Sure, can drag all one by one to revert, but would be nice to have an option to sort alphabetically, maybe by clicking on the NamedViews top of the list?

thanks,

Hi Jarek -

That would be nice, yes. I put it on the list as RH-60323.

More than nice IMHO. Any list that has the potential of more than half a dozen items should automatically have the alphabetical sort feature AND the option of manual re-arranging with the arrangement retained. If an alphabetical re-sort is attempted on a manually rearranged list an “are you sure” popup should appear.

Isn’t this behavior included in a master list object that a developer can use for any list he/she wants to include in a feature under development? Or is everyone allowed to reinvent the wheel?
