    I have a couple question in refrence to the SortExpression setting under the Advanced -> Filters section of the DownloadList control. The example given when you click the ? is "Publication_Date DESC", I have looked in the file DownloadListTemplate.ascx and found what I think are the other meta tag values I could sort by, but no matter what I put into the text box (that doesn't cause an error) it does not effect the order of the list. I thought that since the default was Publication_Date DESC that changing the value to Publication_Date ASC should flip the list, but it doesn't.

    My questions are:

    1. Where can I find the list of meta tag values I can sort on?
    2. Do I need to make some configuration changes withing the SF admin to get the SortExpression setting to take effect?

    Hello Bryan,

    All metakeys are declared in the web.config - <metafields> section, so you can find them. The default metakeys are

    • Width
    • Height
    • Size
    • Extension
    • AlternateText
    • Author
    • Description
    • Category
    • PermaLink

    These are the default keys that you can use to filter the content items. To add additional metakeys Please take a look at our UserManual section Adding Custom fields, page 214

    Best wishes,
