I have answered the support thread opened on the same subject by your colleague Muthuraman. I would like to ask you to continue our discussion in only one thread to avoid duplication. Thank you for your understanding.
Here is a copy of the posted answer:
The MultiSelect widget uses HTML Select element under the hood to persists and post the selected items. That being said, the order of the tags shows the order of the selection, but does not re-order Select options, hence the order of the selected values will match the order of the items in the popup element. Check the following screencast (link to the test demo) for better understanding of the above explanation.
The drag&drop of the selected tags can be enabled, but this will not reflect the order of the posted values, because of the above explanation. Also re-adding items in a specific order will not affect the order of the Select options.
I believe the most feasible option of the listed above is "2". You can use the MultiSelect widget to allow multiple selection, but you will need to persist the order in different place/input. Currently we do not have a specific widget that will do exactly the wanted functionality. Nevertheless, I believe that you can use the option 2 and just persist the order of the tags. Would this be sufficient?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
