EPiServer 8 - setting a default sort order of child pages

Vote:
 

In EPiServer 6 we could change a default order sort order of child pages using PageTypeBuilder.

Is there something similar in EPiServer 8?

Although it's for EPiServer 7 this guide http://www.david-tec.com/2012/06/Comparing-PageTypeBuilder-and-EPiServer-7-Preview-typed-pages-part-3-of-3/ has the following.

Set on the pages/blocks overriden SetDefaultValues

this.Properties["PageChildOrderRule"].Value = EPiServer.Filters.FilterSortOrder.CreatedDescending;

I've not tried it however but the FilterSortOrder enum is still there in EPiServer 9

Hi,

I can confirm that this works, we use it in projects:

        public override void SetDefaultValues(ContentType contentType)
        {
            this[MetaDataProperties.PageChildOrderRule] = FilterSortOrder.PublishedDescending;
        }

BR,

Marija

Thanks, this does the trick. I was hoping there is an attribute which I can use to decorate my classes.
