Sorting Refinements

Sorting Refinements

With InstantSearch, we make it easy for you to customize the order of your refinement lists. You can sort them in two ways, alphabetically or by occurrence (by refinement count), in ascending or descending order.

Example

Using our RefinementList widgets (RefinementTableWidget or RefinementCollectionWidget), you can specify how it is sorted with the sortBy property like so:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
refinementTableWidget.sortBy = "count:asc"
refinementTableWidget.sortBy = "count:desc"
refinementTableWidget.sortBy = "name:asc"
refinementTableWidget.sortBy = "name:desc"

refinementCollectionWidget.sortBy = "count:asc"
refinementCollectionWidget.sortBy = "count:desc"
refinementCollectionWidget.sortBy = "name:asc"
refinementCollectionWidget.sortBy = "name:desc"
