Sorting the Task Menu

Jerry_VeldhuisJerry_Veldhuis Customer Advanced IT Monkey ✭✭✭
A bit of helpful code that sorts the Task Menu. It uses a MutationObserver to monitor the page and when the menu is present it sorts it once. Its best to add this at the bottom of your custom.js (or load is using getScript).

Tested in v4.0.10 as well as v7.3.2012.1 and 7.4.2012.1

Would be nice if the the portal did this automatically.

    // Notify me of these!
    var observerConfig = { attributes: false, childList: true, characterData: false, subtree: true };
    // Node, config
    $(document).ready(function () {
	var targetNode = document.getElementById('main_wrapper');
	browseByCategoryObserver.observe(targetNode, observerConfig);
