build parameter display order

Is there a way to control the display order of the various build parameters that shows up in the custom build dialog window? Now it seems that teamcity displays the parameters randomly. I tried to use a prefix string to see if there is any alphabetical sorting, but no.

thanks!

It seems the parameter display sorting is based on the parameter name (as it appears on the parameter list in the build config), not on its label. Too bad!

Ahahahaha:

Since 2018.1, the name of a configuration parameter should satisfy the following requirements:

<...>

* it should not start with numbers

Hey, Jetbrains, how am i supposed to sort parameters now?

Parameters are sorted alphabetically (by parameter name, not by its label): https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/TW-20008

Should that not be the case, comment on that issue to reopen it. Also please provide screenshots of the problem.

Denis, thank you for your answer.

Parameters are sorted alphabetically by parameter name for sure, this is how it works.

Unfortunately, this makes having correct parameter names and meaningful order in menu unreachable at the same time, this is the issue. It would be much more rational to sort it by labels. It would be great if Jetbrains think about it, my builds waiting for this for so long and are sad.

Hi I'm storing configuration as kotlin project
why not do it like for steps? there is 

var stepsOrder = arrayListOf<String>()

can we get the same for params like paramsOrder ?
