I am building a SharePoint 2013 SharePoint hosted app, provisioning a list using Site Columns, but no defined content type, just using the automatically assigned content type ListFieldContentType.

The problem I am having is that the field order in the edit form is not the same as the order I am configuring in the schema. There does not seem to be a UI for changing the order, or any sequence attributes I can assign in the schema xml.

Okay I found a solution, by altering the field GUIDs to be in number order, I can get the fields to provision in the correct order on the edit form.
