    Block list items sorting on the Backoffice side


    I have a Block list item that also contains a list of block items for a module I am creating.

    all worked so far fine and I am able to display the content correctly ordered on the front end

    The problem is on the Backoffice angular preview of the module

    when creating the module and adding the items it's fine

    but rearranging the items in the list by dragging them around doesn't seem to do anything for the list of times I am getting in the JS controller for the Backoffice. On the Frontend the order is changing correctly though.

    Any idea?

    Hi Leo,

    Sounds like you may have found a bug!

    Can you provide some steps to replicate this issue, and/or a video demonstrating it in action?

    I have a similar setup with a set of element types, but I'm not using a custom renderer. To sort my "block list item that contains other blocks" I have to click into the first, and sort from there.

    Let me know how I and others may replicate what you're doing. Could be a bug!

    Hey Mark,

    Sry for the very late response!

    after tinkering around with the problem, I think it's by design.

    The data returned for the items contain a sorted list of the item's UIDs called layout .

    I was able to sort the items in the Backoffice UI this way

    enter image description here

    I also encountered such a problem. I solved it in this way. Umbraco version 13.2.2

    angular.module("umbraco").controller("headerBlockController", function ($scope) {
    function sortContentData() {
        const sortOrder = $["Umbraco.BlockList"].map(block => block.contentUdi);
        $, b) => {
            const indexA = sortOrder.indexOf(a.udi);
            const indexB = sortOrder.indexOf(b.udi);
            return indexA - indexB;
    $scope.$watch('["Umbraco.BlockList"]', (newValue, oldValue) => {
        if (newValue !== oldValue) {
    }, true); });
