2505Possibility of Node Sort
- Jun 22, 2006Hi,
With a hypothetical treeview of three nodes, labeled A, B an C. Each
node will be a folder, and each one contains arbitrary child nodes (0,
1 or more).
My tree is constructed by using setDynamicLoad() for the folders, not
the tree as a whole. A click on a folder allows the folder name to be
edited in a text box. The edit is confirmed by sending the changes the
the server where the backend updates the change.
Now, to keep the tree in synch with the backend, I need to refresh the
tree. If node B label was changed to 'Z', the folders should display
as A, C, Z and not A, Z, C. At the moment I simply clear out the tree
and force it to redraw, which is not ideal once the tree attains a
larger number of nodes. Ideally, since the backend has recorded the
change, I would like to simply sort the nodes in the tree, right in
the DOM, to reflect the change without redrawing the whole tree.
Could someone kindly express how this may be accomplished using the
available methods of YUI's codebase, or point out how I might extend
the codebase myself to do this? Any tips most appreciated.
