in a classic mongodb query i will do a :


how to do it with mgo ?

err := C.Find(bson.M{"Receiver": userId}).Sort("_id":-1).All(&result)

is not working

Regards and Thanks


A sequence of sort operations is simply translated like this:

In MongoDB query:

.sort({"_id:" 1, "name": 1})

Using mgo:

err := C.Find(bson.M{"Receiver": userId}).Sort("_id", "name").All(&result)

If any of the sort operations needs to be done in reverse order, you use -1 in MongoDB query:

.sort({"_id:" -1, "name": -1})

This is transated to a simple '-' sign before the field name in mgo:

err := C.Find(bson.M{"Receiver": userId}).Sort("-_id", "-name").All(&result)

This is documented at Query.Sort():

func (q *Query) Sort(fields ...string) *Query

Sort asks the database to order returned documents according to the provided field names. A field name may be prefixed by – (minus) for it to be sorted in reverse order.
