Tech Tip: Collection .sort() Function
PRODUCT: 4D | VERSION: 19 | PLATFORM: Mac & Win
Published On: December 20, 2022
The 4D Collection class has a sort function that will return a new sorted collection. Because collections can contain a mix of value types, the sort has a specific ordering.
The order prioritizes first the types:
- 1) null
This should be kept in mind when using the default sort function. A method can be applied for a custom form of
sorting, or if a specific type is needed, the collection can be filtered.
