Get the most recent n data objects


(MItchell) #1

Hi Team,

Trying to retrieve the most recent 60 data objects in a table. Is there a function similar to findFirst where I can easily retrieve the first 60 objects?

If I need to do manual paging, does it start paging from the older records to the newest? Or the newest records to the oldest?

Cheers,
Mitch

Hi Mitchell
You can do that with “sortBy” property, just specify a sort property and a sort direction
Here is a doc for REST https://backendless.com/docs/rest/doc.html#sorting
but you can find the same for any SDK
