Order by Links Default Direction and :select

Reported by Scott | March 24th, 2009 @ 05:13 PM

Is it posible to set the default direction of order_by_links so it would use DESC the first time pressed?

Is it also posible to limit the data returned from a search similiar to :select

@luser.shelves.find(:all, :order => "media asc", :select => 'id, name, media')

Thanks, Scott

    Yes in your controller

    @search.order_by ||= :my_field
    @search.order_as ||= :desc
    

    Also, no you can no limit what fields are returned because of the joins that are required to run your search. If you didnt require any joins I believe the :select option would work just fine.
