Introduction

I have created a taxonomy group in which I have a termset. In the termset I have created a few terms. I want to change the order of the child terms for a particular term using the SharePoint object model. In this article you will see how to do custom sort order for taxonomy terms using SharePoint object model. Open Central Administration. Click on "Application Management". Click on "Manage service applications" available under Service Applications. Click on "Managed Metadata Service Application".


Select the "Term2"; on the right hand side you will see the properties of the term. Click on the "CUSTOM SORT" tab; by default "Use default sort order according to current language" will be selected. In this article you will see how to set a custom sort order using the SharePoint Object model.
