Sort the result set by the field selected in the sort_expr argument. The allowed orders are ASC (Ascending) or DESC (Descending). This operation is equivalent to the 'ORDER BY' SQL operation and it follows the same set of rules.

Return Values

A CollectionFind object that can be used to execute the command, or to add additional operations.

Examples

Example #1 mysql_xdevapi\CollectionFind::sort() example

<?php
$session 
mysql_xdevapi\getSession("mysqlx://user:password@localhost");
$session->sql("DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS addressbook")->execute();
$session->sql("CREATE DATABASE addressbook")->execute();

$schema $session->getSchema("addressbook");
$create $schema->createCollection("people");
$create
  
->add('{"name": "Alfred", "age": 18, "job": "Butler"}')
  ->
execute();
$create
  
->add('{"name": "Reginald", "age": 42, "job": "Butler"}')
  ->
execute();

// ...

$collection $schema->getCollection("people");

$result $collection
  
->find()
  ->
sort('job desc''age asc')
  ->
execute();

var_dump($result->fetchAll());
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

array(2) {
  [0]=>
  array(4) {
    ["_id"]=>
    string(28) "00005b6b53610000000000000106"
    ["age"]=>
    int(18)
    ["job"]=>
    string(6) "Butler"
    ["name"]=>
    string(6) "Alfred"
  }
  [1]=>
  array(4) {
    ["_id"]=>
    string(28) "00005b6b53610000000000000107"
    ["age"]=>
    int(42)
    ["job"]=>
    string(6) "Butler"
    ["name"]=>
    string(8) "Reginald"
  }
}
