FieldManager updates childrens in the order of each field is declared, when using a code generator utility I add other childrens in a partial class. Some of the generated fields depends on my childrens:

    TableA_ID;   (PK, int autoincrement) 
    TableB_ID;   (FK , int, TableB, TableB_ID, Nullable);
    TableB_ID;   (PK, int autoincrement)

partial class ClassA
   static TableA;

partial class ClassB
  static TableB;

TableA::Child_Update(ClassA parent)

     if(parent.TableB != null)    
            TableB_ID = parent.TableB.TableB_ID;
I need that FieldManager inserts TableB first, and then TableA, instead of the normal order.

I think that the easiest solution is declare the two childrens manually. I have added a method UpdateChildren(string[]  childrensOrder) to FieldManager, a derived class from BusinessBase and a virtual property UpdateChildrensOrder.

What you think? I'm making complex the problem?

Instead of using FieldManager.UpdateChildren, call DataPortal.UpdateChild.  That's all UpdateChildren does anyway, but you'll be able to control the ordering.
