Reverse The ListView Action Buttons

Interesting question asked on community forum, would love to share its solution!

Question : Can we do a reversal of ListView Action buttons ?

We have done the code for Accounts module. Change it as per your requirement.

Steps are as below,

1. Write the following code into custom/modules/Accounts/views/view.list.php

 if(!defined('sugarEntry') || !sugarEntry) die('Not A Valid Entry Point');   

  class AccountsViewList extends ViewList {
    public function preDisplay()
      $this->lv = new ListViewSmartyAccounts();

2.  Write the following code into custom/include/ListView/ListViewSmartyAccounts.php

if(!defined('sugarEntry') || !sugarEntry) die('Not A Valid Entry Point');   

  class ListViewSmartyAccounts extends ListViewSmarty {
    function buildActionsLink($id = 'actions_link', $location = 'top')
      $link = parent::buildActionsLink();
      $link['buttons'] = array_reverse($link['buttons']);
      return $link;

3. Refresh the Accounts ListView page and see the effect.
