Reverse sorts by score


#1

The docs for Sort.new say:

reverse: pass true if you want the sort order to be reversed. Only works
if you pass the field names.

Does this mean it’s not possible to do a reverse sort by score? If it is
it seems to be broken as I don’t seem to be able to reverse the order of
the sort. I’ll write a test case if this is not a known problem.

Greetings,

Pedro.

Hi Pedro,

To sort reverse by score do this;

s = Sort.new(SortField.new("Reverse Score",
                     {:sort_type => SortField::SortType::SCORE,
                       :reverse => true}))

Hope that helps.

Dave
