Definition and Usage

The orderBy filter allows us to sort an array.

By default, strings are sorted alphabetically, and numbers are sorted numerically.


Syntax

{{ array | orderBy : expression : reverse }}

Parameter Values

Value Description
expression The expression used to determine the order. The expression can be of type:

String: If the array is an array of objects, you can sort the array by the value of one of the object properties. See the examples below.

Function: You can create a function to organize the sorting.

Array: Use an array if you need more than one object property to determine the sorting order. The array items can be both strings and functions.
reverse Optional. Set to true if you want to reverse the order of the array.

More Examples

Example

Sort the array by "city":

<div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="orderCtrl">

<ul>
<li ng-repeat="x in customers | orderBy : 'city'">{{x.name + ", " + x.city}}</li>
</ul>

</div>

<script>
var app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.controller('orderCtrl', function($scope) {
    $scope.customers = [
        {"name" : "Bottom-Dollar Marketse" ,"city" : "Tsawassen"},
        {"name" : "Alfreds Futterkiste", "city" : "Berlin"},
        {"name" : "Bon app", "city" : "Marseille"},

        {"name" : "B's Beverages", "city" : "London"}
    ];
});
</script>

Example

Sort the array by "city", in descending order:

<div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="orderCtrl">

<ul>
<li ng-repeat="x in customers | orderBy : '-city'">{{x.name + ", " + x.city}}</li>
</ul>

</div>

<script>
var app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.controller('orderCtrl', function($scope) {
    $scope.customers = [
        {"name" : "Bottom-Dollar Marketse" ,"city" : "Tsawassen"},
        {"name" : "Alfreds Futterkiste", "city" : "Berlin"},
