i have this custom post_type: tvr_apartment

function custom_post_apartment() {
        $labels = array(
            'name'                => 'Apartments',
            'singular_name'       => 'Apartment',
            'add_new'             => 'Add New',
            'add_new_item'        => 'Add New Apartment',
            'edit_item'           => 'Edit Apartment',
            'new_item'            => 'New Apartment',
            'all_items'           => 'All Apartments',
            'view_item'           => 'View Apartment',
            'search_items'        => 'Search Apartments',
            'not_found'           => 'No apartments found',
            'not_found_in_trash'  => 'No apartments found in trash',
            'parent_item_colon'   => '',
            'menu_name'           => 'Apartments'

        $args = array(
            'labels' => $labels,
            'public' => true,
            'query_var' => true,
            'rewrite' => true,
            'capability_type' => 'post',
            'has_archive' => true,
            'hierarchical' => false,
            'menu_position' => null,
            'taxonomies' => array('rf_apartment_feature'),
            'supports' => array( 'title', 'editor', 'author', 'thumbnail', 'excerpt' )

        register_post_type( 'tvr_apartment', $args );

And I would like to enable the sticky post functionality to it,

I searched here:

But i it seems is not the way to go, any ideas?

I posted a working solution as of WordPress 4.2 here:… Basically, it implies installing a small plugin and add a code snippet. – Tristan CHARBONNIER Apr 30 at 5:25

According to extensive and long running trac ticket #12702, custom post types don't (and likely won't) support sticky functionality.

It's probably not impossible to reuse it (with unholy amount of copy paste and edge cases) for CPT in custom site, but in my opinion custom solution (probably custom fields based) would be more practical and clean approach.
