ISearchQueryHelper::put_QuerySorting method (searchapi.h)

Sets the sort order for the query result set.

Syntax

HRESULT put_QuerySorting(
  [in] LPCWSTR pszSorting
);

Parameters

[in] pszSorting

Type: LPCWSTR

A comma-delimited, null-terminated Unicode string that specifies the sort order.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

ppszSorting must be a valid ORDER BY clause (without the ORDER BY keyword). Windows Search SQL supports sorting on multiple properties, in either ascending (ASC) or descending (DESC) order on each property. For example, ppszSorting might contain the following:

System.ItemAuthors ASC, System.ItemDate DESC
