Reordering Sites in Device Tree

Postby plbrunet » Tue Mar 22, 2016 5:30 am

Hello Coolux team,

Is it possible to reorder Sites in the device tree!?
I just tried in my offline manager with Rev 12383 and I was not able to do it?

If not, 1) we would all be very greatful if we could and 2) for a short term temporary solution, would it be possible to do so by modifying the XML showfile?

We have a setup where a lot a time has been spent on layer setup and programming and we need to make modifications. We would really really rather not start from scratch!

you can reorder Layers but not Sites. It is on the feature wish list.
You can change Site ID Numbers in the inspector of a site.

To answer b: In theory yes, but you are running a very huge risk of corrupting your hole showfile. This is also something that coolux can and will not support, since it gets very complex and tricky very fast.

If the order is very important to you, I would probably drag the sites back into the devices tab again, then copy all your timeline info down etc.

Editing the XML is only for desperate situations or general curiosity.
