Sort order of extended fields for sub sub sub types.

Reported by Andy Robertson | October 20th, 2009 @ 02:27 PM

When a subtype of a topic, the extended fields of the last/lowest descended subtype are displayed at the top of the extended field display rather than at the bottom. All superior extended fields are ordered from the highest to lowest.

For example if we have a subtype of person called solider

Person has the extend fields.
firstname
lastname
dateofbirth

soldier as extended fields
nextofkin
serial

When displayed the order on screen is

nextofkin
serial
firstname
lastname
dateofbirth

A more illustrative case is this.
AA is parent of BB is parent of CC is parent of DD

We have extended fields for them all

AA has two extended fields AA1, AA2,
BB has two extended fields BB1, BB2
CC has two extended fields CC1, CC2
DD has two extended fields DD1, DD2

the display order is

DD1
DD2
AA1
AA2
BB1
BB2
CC1
CC2
CC2
