Detailed Description

The OrderByClause class represents an order by clause for a QgsFeatureRequest.

It can be a simple field or an expression. Multiple order by clauses can be added to a QgsFeatureRequest to fine tune the behavior if a single field or expression is not enough to completely specify the required behavior.

If expression compilation is activated in the settings and the expression can be translated for the provider in question, it will be evaluated on provider side. If one of these two premises does not apply, the ordering will take place locally which results in increased memory and CPU usage.

If the ordering is done on strings, the order depends on the system's locale if the local fallback implementation is used. The order depends on the server system's locale and implementation if ordering is done on the server.

In case the fallback code needs to be used, a limit set on the request will be respected for the features returned by the iterator but internally all features will be requested from the provider.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QgsFeatureRequest::OrderByClause::OrderByClause ( const QString expression,
bool  ascending = true 
)

Creates a new OrderByClause for a QgsFeatureRequest.

Parameters
expressionThe expression to use for ordering
ascendingIf the order should be ascending (1,2,3) or descending (3,2,1) If the order is ascending, by default nulls are last If the order is descending, by default nulls are first

QgsFeatureRequest::OrderByClause::OrderByClause ( const QString expression,
bool  ascending,
bool  nullsfirst 
)

Creates a new OrderByClause for a QgsFeatureRequest.

Parameters
expressionThe expression to use for ordering
ascendingIf the order should be ascending (1,2,3) or descending (3,2,1)
nullsfirstIf true, NULLS are at the beginning, if false, NULLS are at the end
