Passing an index as a second parameter will have full effect for layout rows and cols, accordion and carousel panels, toolbar and form controls. Some other widgets (e.g. multiview or containers with absolute positioning for child views) won't display changes in view order. Still, the real order (returned by getChildViews()) will always change accordingly.
