Our public control NewsList support sorting by any data column trough Appearance/SortBy
Most probably you can sort news by Publication_Date
. Rules for writing the expression are simple:
1. If nothing is placed in the property, sorting is by natural order (as already Bob explain).
2. If you place a column name, sorting is performing by this column (ascending).
3. To change the sort order to descending you should add DESC
(in capital letters!). For example:
SortBy: Publication_Date DESC.
In the meantime we found a bug in the sorting. Attached you can find the fix. Note the assembly version - 126.96.36.199
. It should work with Sitefinity RC1update
