Category Leaf Ordering

Tue Oct 18, 2016 9:45 am

I'm creating a channel based on the VideoPlayer Sample Channel, is there a way to control the display order of the categoryLeaf elements? The order on screen does not match the order in my feed.

You will probably need to specify if it is the old SDK or the new Scenegraph version you're working with.  I think I read somewhere that if it's an associative array then the order will be randomized, so you'd need to sort them first?  But I don't remember exactly.

If you want them in a different order you should be able to add them individually to a new array before displaying to the screen - rather than using for each you can use a regular for loop -
Something like this -- note - this might not be exactly what you need, just off the top of my head

x=categoryleaf.count()-1
categoryleafcollection=[]
For i=0 to x
categoryleafcollection.push(categoryleaf[i])
Next
