Favorites API questions

I am trying to get the Favorites in priority order like is displayed in the stv(V9.0.8.429). I can get the favorites using the code below but the order doesn't match what the stv is showing. I would also like to be able to make a favorite higher or lower priority so I can do a favorite rearrangement like STV does. The only api call I see that looks to change the priority is CreateFavoritePriority. Using the code below each time I run it I would expect the second favorite to become the highest priority favorite but when I run it several times it doesn't change the order. Googling the "SageTV GetFavorites" seems to imply that the order returned is in priority order but the api docs don't say anything about it. I am running this code below as a standalone program using sagex but it will ultimately be in a plugin.

Thanks!



public static void testFavorites()
{
Object[] favorites = FavoriteAPI.GetFavorites();

for(int x = 0; x < favorites.length; x++)
{
String Title = FavoriteAPI.GetFavoriteTitle(favorites[x]);
String description = FavoriteAPI.GetFavoriteDescription(favorites[x]);

System.out.printf("Favorite title: %s Description: %s\n", Title, description);
}

if (favorites.length >1)
{
FavoriteAPI.CreateFavoritePriority(favorites[1], favorites[0]);
System.out.printf("Favorite %s set to highest priority\n",
FavoriteAPI.GetFavoriteTitle(favorites[1]) );

}
}

Yes, sorting Favorites is a little strange.

Take a look at the Sort() method in the Database API. Set the last parameter (SortTechnique) to "FavoritePriority" and it will do what you want.

SortedFavorites = Sort(GetFavorites(), false, "FavoritePriority")

Thanks that works! I can now get favorites in the same order as Sage displays.
