Enum Constant Detail

ASCENDING

public static final SortOrder ASCENDING
Enumeration value indicating the items are sorted in increasing order. For example, the set 1, 4, 0 sorted in ASCENDING order is 0, 1, 4.


DESCENDING

public static final SortOrder DESCENDING
Enumeration value indicating the items are sorted in decreasing order. For example, the set 1, 4, 0 sorted in DESCENDING order is 4, 1, 0.


UNSORTED

public static final SortOrder UNSORTED
Enumeration value indicating the items are unordered. For example, the set 1, 4, 0 in UNSORTED order is 1, 4, 0.

Method Detail

values

public static SortOrder[] values()
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
for (SortOrder c : SortOrder.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static SortOrder valueOf(String name)
Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
