public static interface Container.Ordered
extends Container

Interface for Container classes whose Items can be traversed in order.

If the container is filtered or sorted, the traversal applies to the filtered and sorted view.

The addItemAfter() methods should apply filters to the added item after inserting it, possibly hiding it immediately. If the container is being sorted, they may add items at the correct sorted position instead of the given position. See also Container.SimpleFilterable and Container.Sortable for more information.
