Sorting taxonomies

  • Sorting taxonomies
  • Hi,

    Some time ago we managed to create a custom TaxonomyControl. It's bound by Taxonomy-Guid to Sitefinity in order to get the required items.
    _tax is a dictionary with key: Taxonomy-Guid and value: stringarray with name / title. 

    TaxonomyControl t = new TaxonomyControl()

    ContentId = Guid.Parse("00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"),
    Enabled = true,
    EnableViewState = true,
    FieldName = kp.Value[1],
    ID = "CC_" + _tax.Keys.ToList().IndexOf(kp.Key),
    RenderAs = TaxonomyControl.RenderTaxonomyAs.VerticalList,
    SeeAllTextFormat = "All (0) 1",
    ShowItemCount = true,
    TabIndex = 0,
    TaxaCount = 0,
    TaxonomyId = kp.Key,
    Title = kp.Value[0],
    ViewStateMode = ViewStateMode.Enabled,
    Visible = true

    This works, but now we want the taxa in alphabetical order, and not ordered by ordinal value of the Taxonomy table. There is no property in TaxonomyControl to order them in any other way. How can I make this possible?

    Kind regards,

    Erik Jan
