Orderable child nodes¶
While moving is about changing the parent of a node, ordering is used to set the position inside the child list. Preserving and altering order is an optional feature of PHPCR.
The only method needed is Node::orderBefore
<?php //get the node from the session $node = $session->getNode('/data/node'); $node->addNode('first'); $node->addNode('second'); // new nodes are added to the end of the list // order is: first, second // ordering is done on the parent node. the first argument is the name of // the child node to be reordered, the second the name of the node to moved // node is placed before $node->orderBefore('second', 'first'); // now the order is: second, first
