Wouldn't it be nice if the IIS Website bindings window had a default sort

Or, "wouldn't it be nice if the IIS Website bindings window had a default sort that wasn't the order that the bindings were added to the site" to put it another way. I made an oops and created the bindings on two new servers in a different order. This means that when I look at the GUI, I see:

It's exactly the same set of bindings but they're displayed in a different order. A quick look in applicationHost.config for the server in the top screengrab shows that the <bindings> element looks like this:

    <binding protocol = "https" bindingInformation="*:8091:" sslFlags="0" />
    <binding protocol = "https" bindingInformation="*:443:" sslFlags="0" />
    <binding protocol = "http" bindingInformation="*:80:live.staging.development.local" />

It really would be nice if a default sort order was applied when the data is initially displayed in the "Site Bindings" window, e.g. Type, Host Name, Port, IP Address, rather than it being "creation order". It would make quick visual check comparisons a little easier, if nothing else!

About Rob

I've been interested in computing since the day my Dad purchased his first business PC (an Amstrad PC 1640 for anyone interested) which introduced me to MS-DOS batch programming and BASIC.

My skillset has matured somewhat since then, which you'll probably see from the posts here. You can read a bit more about me on the about page of the site, or check out some of the other posts on my areas of interest.
