Hey all I am trying to find the correct way to order/sort my child names in order from A-Z.

Currently my treeview looks like this:

And this is how I would like to sort it:

The data is coming in via JSON like so (using the above example):

[{
        "Name": "AU",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Academic",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "Gitlab",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Code Repos",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "B",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Dating",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "GitHubCommits",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Code Repos",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "GitHub",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Code Repos",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "Re",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Academic",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "Ir",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Dating",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "Ru",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Academic",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "LoveA",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Dating",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    }, {
        "Name": "LoveH",
        "Description": null,
        "Id": "xxx",
        "DocumentType": null,
        "Category": "Dating",
        "Icon": null,
        "ProviderId": 2
    },.........
]

Note that the JSON above does not come in any type of order. The Category names themselves are in order by me doing this:

dataSource: { data: resultData, schema: { model: { children: 'items' }, parse: (data) => { let newData = []; //Re-order catagory names A-Z data.sort((a, b) => (a.Category > b.Category) ? 1 : -1);

....

The rest of the above code looks like this::

           data.forEach(item => {
              let parent = newData.find(parentItem => parentItem.text === item.Category);

              if (!parent) {
                 //The beginning of the tree category
                 parent = {
                     id: 2,
                     text: item.Category,
                     expanded: true,
                     items: [],
                     imageUrl: "" + item.Icon + ""
                 };

                 newData.push(parent);
              }

              parent.items.push({
                 //Each "child" under the above category
                 id: 3,
                 text: item.Name,
                 imageUrl: "" + item.Icon + ""
              });
           });

           return [{
              id: 1,
              text: 'Categories',
              expanded: true,
              items: newData
           }];
       }
   }
 }
});

How would I, using the code above, sort also the child items under each category name?

I've tried already adding this to the code:

sort: {
field: "Name",
dir: "asc"}

But that does not seem to do anything?

Typically, you can do that by adding two sort operators and remove the schema.parse function. Here you are a dojo example: https://dojo.telerik.com/@iankodj/oWutOQAT
