Image sort order in albums

I noticed in the backend that you are able reorder the images in a album. This is excellent that this feature is included and just what I am looking for. 

I cannot find the property in the Model.Image or Model.Album objects to get this value. Anyone know if this property is available in the API?

I am looking for something like:

var album = GetAlbumByName("Homepage Random Current Trip Images");
 
var images = album.Images.ToList().Where(image => image.Status == ContentLifecycleStatus.Live).OrderBy(image => image.XXX);

Thanks,

Hi Solomon,

We sort the image through service ImageService. Here is an example for sorting by Title.

Sitefinity/Services/Content/ImageService.svc/?managerType=&providerName=&itemType=Telerik.Sitefinity.Libraries.Model.Image&provider=&sortExpression=Title%20ASC&skip=0&take=50

You can use the following methods to make sorting

items = DataProviderBase.SetExpressions(items, filter, sortExpression, culture, skip, take, ref totalCount);

Best wishes,

Thanks for the quick reply. I can sort the list I get back using LINQ (by title or any other public property). I am looking for the order property that is assigned to a image when you reorder the images in an album (click on an album > Album Actions > Reorder Images). How do I sort my list in the order I specify in the backend?

Thanks!

@Solomon, you want to sort by the property "Ordinal" when you drag and drop images to set the sort order the value is stored in the Ordinal field.

Pretty sure that's what you are looking for.

OK. Now I feel silly. That was it. Thanks, Phil!

Not a problem and not so silly, I spent some time looking for something called "SortOrder" as that seemed logical to me. Glad I could put you on the right track.

Cheers,
Phill
