Customizing Configuration Sort Order

You can specify the order in which configurations are listed in the ConfigurationManager.

To customize configuration sort order:

  1. In the ConfigurationManager, right-click the top-level configuration and click Tree Order.
  2. Select one of the following:
    Option Description
    Numeric Sorts by ascending alpha or numeric value.
    Literal Sorts by alphabetical order.
    Manual (Drag and Drop) Lets you drag and drop configurations in the configuration tree. As you drag up or down the tree, each configuration that you drag over is highlighted. The configuration that you are moving drops immediately below the currently highlighted item when you release the pointer.
    History-Based Sorts by the date the configuration was created, from earliest created at the top of the list to most recently created at the bottom of the list.
