Sort order for contacts override

Last Updated: 12/12/2016

OEMs can customize the default values for people sort and display settings as documented in the Sort order for contacts customization. However, these settings may be overridden by the defaults for the user’s current locale unless the OEM sets an additional override registry key.

Constraints: ImageTimeOnly

Instructions:

  1. Create a customization answer file using the contents shown in the following code sample.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
      <ImageCustomizations xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/embedded/2004/10/ImageUpdate"  
                         Name="OEMOverridesSortDisplay"  
                         Description="Use to prevent OEM values for people sort and display settings from being overridden by user's current locale."  
                         Owner=""  
                         OwnerType="OEM">
     <Static>  
        <Settings Path="People/SortAndDisplaySettings">  
          <Setting Name="OEMOverridesSortDisplay" Value="" />   
        </Settings>  
      </Static>
    
    </ImageCustomizations>
    
  2. Specify an Owner.

  3. Set the OEMOverridesSortDisplay value to 1 or 0x1 to prevent the OEM values for people sort and display settings from being overridden.

Testing steps:

  1. Flash a build containing this customization to a device.

  2. Go to the People settings screen.

  3. Verify that the Sort list by and the Display names by option is set to the values you specified in the Sort order for contacts customization.
