Sorting unifiedfile()

Vote:
 
I'm using UnifiedDirectory.Getfiles() to create a datasource for a datalist. I want to be able to sort the files by creation date in the resulting unifiedFile() . Anybody got any ideas? Thanks, Steve.

No. We were having other problems with the unified file system like .xls files were failing to load when all other formats were OK. Strangely only on our live servers, Dev & test were all OK. So I've stopped using it in favour of Page Files.

I did this recently with a repeater control. I wanted to be able to sort files in various ways and included sorting the folders they were in as well. I built a custom plugin for the sort types I wanted and in code behind I built a DataSet: some snippets: sortOrder = CurrentPage["SortOrder"].ToString(); DataSet myTableDataSet = new DataSet(); DataTable myTable = new DataTable(); myTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Path", typeof(string))); myTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Size", typeof(string))); myDataRow1["Path"] = HttpUtility.HtmlEncode(f.Path); myDataRow1["Size"] = ConvertFileSize(f.Length); myDataView.Table = myTableDataSet.Tables[0]; myDataView.Sort = "DirID, FileID, " + sortOrder; /John
