Sort flexibility

Post by dunbarx » Mon Nov 09, 2015 5:20 pm

One can place the "sortType" and "sortDirection" on either side of the container reference, including both sides:

Code: Select all

sort numeric descending myVar
sort numeric descending myVar ascending numeric

But those modifiers placed after the reference will override those placed before.

This does not apply to the "sortKey", which must follow the reference.
