Hello,

My business object properties have a attribute DisplayIndex and I want to set the order of my datafields to this displayindex.

DisplayIndexAttribute displayIndexAtt;
 if (property.TryGetAttribute<DisplayIndexAttribute>(out displayIndexAtt))
            {
        
                e.Order = displayIndexAtt.index;
            }

This is working fine. But the problem is that not all properties have the displayindex attribute, so for some properties e.Order is null. I expected that these properties are displayed at the end of the dataform, but instead they are at the beginning.

Is there a way to change this behavior in the way that the properties without an explicit order will be at the end of the Dataform?

Hi Thomas,

I believe the only way to do this is to iterate over the elements and assign a large number(exceeding the max possible count of fields )  to those whose initial value is null.
