Changing the order of the nodes using the RS_TREE FMs

Dear developer community,

I'm generating a standard SAP tree structure using the


RS_TREE_LIST_DISPLAY. The result looks good. The only thing that bothers me and prevents me from calling this job finished is that the sorting order on each hierarchy level is exactly top-down, the nodes added at last are displayed first and vice versa. In the FM-parameters as well as in the node-datastructures I don't find anything that seems to offer me to take influence on the sorting order. Anyway: Due to the very special way we collect the information that finally is supposed to be displayed hierarchically, changing the order of the node-generation unfortunetaly is not an option !

Does anybody have experience with this group of FMs who could tell me how this can be achieved ?

Thanks in advance

      in use the CL_COLUMN_TREE_MODEL class to build the column tree, then you can do it this way:

      lt_nodes-node_key = 'XXXXX'

      lt_nodes-relatship = cl_column_tree_model=>relat_last_child.


      This will insert the node as the last node of the parent node (lt_nodes-relatkey).

      There is a similar parameter "relationship" at the mentioned function model. I don't know exactly, but I can image that it works the same way.

      Best regards,
