ascending( )


Developer Preview

This API is subject to change. Bug fixes and new features will be released based on developer feedback throughout the preview period.

Adds a sort to a query, sorting by the specified properties in ascending order.

The ascending() function refines a SubmissionsQueryBuilder to sort by the value of propertyName in ascending order. You can specify multiple properties for sorting in ascending order by passing each property name as an additional argument. ascending() sorts the results in the order the properties are passed. You can sort the following types:

  • Number: Sorts numerically.
  • Date: Sorts by date and time.
  • String: Sorts lexicographically, so 'abc' comes after 'XYZ'. If a property contains a number stored as a string (for example, '0'), that value is sorted alphabetically and not numerically. If a property doesn't have a value, that value is ranked lowest.
