Property Value

Type: String

The sort mode of the upload pane.

The following values are supported:

UnsortedItems are unsorted.
NameItems are sorted by name alphabetically.
SizeItems are sorted by file size.
TypeItems are sorted by file type alphabetically.
ModifiedItems are sorted by the date of last modification.
PathItems are sorted by full path.
DimensionsItems are sorted by image dimensions.

The sort mode cannot be set to Unsorted value manually.

Default value is "Unsorted".


Sort mode is automatically reset to Unsorted when items are rearranged via drag-n-drop or new items are added. It means that when you set a sort mode it is applied only to files which are currently in the upload pane.


If you set the same value twice, the sort order will toggle between ascending and descending and vice versa.
