How do I set the order in which code list descriptions are shown in a form?

I've created a custom field of type code list. If I translate the descriptions, they are displayed in alphabetical order and not in the code value order. How do I command that?

Dear Alessandro,

Where exactly do you miss the right order of the code values? In the value help for the custom field you should always see both, the code and the description and per default the entries are sorted by code.

You might add a screen shot for clarification.

Best regards,
Christof

Hello christof.sommer,

I've highlighted the value "Altro" that means "Other" and obviously should be the third choice in case the user does not identify him/herself with any of the 2 values provided.

I hope this clarify.

I encountered the same problem on Forms/Landing page dropdown lists. Also in Dutch, "Other" translates as "Andere" and alphabetically appears on top. Very frustrating. Have not been able to solve this.

Workaround is to build an integration with a Web Form that does support choosing how to sort a dropdown list ...
