[Users] Order of items in GeoExt.LayerContainer

Thanks for the response.. I realized the problem wasn't with my loader but actually with my mapPanel. I was removing layers from my map and re-adding them (sometimes in a different order) however I wasn't refreshing my mappanel to the new map so the layer order was still the old one. When I refreshed the map panel before using the layerlist/layertree everything works great now. Thanks for the advice.

when using a LayerLoader, the ordering of layers is determined by the order they are added to the map. If you want a different order in the tree, you should create layer nodes manually rather than using a loader.

Not sure why but with the below code the layer DA Label is always added on top of everything else even though I clearly have defined it in between everything. Does the ordering of layers depend on something else entirely? I am even adding the layer last to my map but it still doesn't have any affect, appreciate any assistance.
