    sorting in the control Children Link to this post

    After reading tutorials and a few docs about data managment, I wonder if this is possible to sort data at template level, typicaly in the
    <% control Children %>
    I realize that this would be a little agains MVC model...
    Many thanks,

    I'm not quite sure you can do that in the templates, at least I've never investigated far enough to do so. Is there any reason to go against the MVC model?

    You may, be able to do this, in your model class:

    function FilteredChildren($filter = 'ID DESC') {
    return DataObject::get('Page', "ParentID = {$this->ID}", $filter);

    Then you could go:

    <% control FilteredChildren('Title DESC') %>

    If you leave the parameter out, it uses "ID DESC" - the default. However, I've not tested this, the templating system might not allow it.
