Feature request #15057
Allow custom value map widget sorting
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|

Currently the value map widget re-sorts the values alphabetically. Often I have values that have a logical/expected order that is not alphabetical. A check box to keep the order that they are entered in the widget properties dialog would be excellent.

Sorry, I was confusing terminology.
In the Value Relation widget we have the terms Key => Value which conform to the terms Value => Description in the Value Map.
I can confirm the request as specified in the original text.

Ahh I get it, thanks for clarifying. No that doesn't really work. For example, one field I'm working with is a stream classification system with letter codes(in expected order): 'S', F', 'Np', 'Ns', 'X' and 'U' as well as 'NOCH' and I need to use those codes as the key/"Value". My workaround right now is to add numbers in the "Description" column, so the user sees: '1) S', '2) F', etc which sort of works as a workaround but is also problematic since there is a slightly different(earlier) classification system that uses some of those numbers. Thanks,
