View Full Version : TreePanel sorting with hidden root node

25 May 2007, 10:32 AM
Hi guys.

I have a TreePanel initiated like this:

var tree = new Ext.tree.TreePanel(el, {rootVisible: false});

This of course means that my root node is hidden. After loading the data in the tree (HttpProxy) I try to to sort it using this code:

var sorter = new Ext.tree.TreeSorter(this, {folderSort:true});

My tree has this structure:
Root (hidden)
|____ Parent 2
|____ Parent 1
| |__ Child 1
| |__ Child 2
| |__ Child 3
|____ Parent 3

It works perfectly for the child nodes, but the 'Parent' nodes are not sorted, because they don't have visible parent.

Any idea how to resolve this? Thanks!

In case someone needs it - here is how I resolved the problem:

var sorter = new Ext.tree.TreeSorter(tree, {folderSort:true});

Without the second line, it is not going to sort the 1st level children of the tree, if the root node is not visible.
