To use the 'order' in CakePHP, you need to follow these steps:

  1. First, make sure you have the appropriate model and controller set up in your CakePHP application.
  2. In your controller, in the action where you want to apply the order, add the following line of code:
1
$this->paginate['order'] = ['field_name1' => 'ASC', 'field_name2' => 'DESC'];


Replace field_name1 and field_name2 with the actual names of the fields you want to order by. You can also include more fields for ordering if needed.

  1. Then, when you are calling the paginate method in the controller action, pass the $this->paginate variable as a parameter:
1
2
$data = $this->paginate($this->YourModel);
$this->set('data', $data);


Replace YourModel with the name of your model.

  1. Finally, in your view, you can loop through the ordered data using a foreach loop:
1
2
3
<?php foreach ($data as $datum): ?>
    <!-- display the data here -->
<?php endforeach; ?>


This will display the data ordered by the specified fields. You can adjust the ordering direction (ASC or DESC) based on your requirements.


That's it! You have successfully used the 'order' in CakePHP to order your data.
