we have webpart that fetch the data from the sharepoint list


now i am trying to do sort the display by enddate (ascending order)

camlQuery.set_viewXml("<View><Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name='EndDate' /></OrderBy></Query></View>"); 

i am using the above caml query but it is not working , can you please help me out.

my code

function GetCTItems() {
        var context = new SP.ClientContext();
        var oList = context.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('sharepointLst');
        var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
        //camlQuery.Query=("<OrderBy><FieldRef Name='EndDate' Ascending = 'FALSE'/></OrderBy>");
        camlQuery.set_viewXml("<View><Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name='EndDate' Ascending='True' /></OrderBy></Query></View>");      
        var CTCollection = oList.getItems(camlQuery);
        context.executeQueryAsync(function () {
            var htmlString = "";
            var listItemEnumerator = CTCollection.getEnumerator();

Try to use Ascending='True' as the following

camlQuery.set_viewXml("<View><Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name='EndDate' Ascending='True' /></OrderBy></Query></View>");

To get the correct CAML, create a view that meets your criteria in SharePoint on the list and then you could use SharePoint Client Browser at https://github.com/bramdejager/spcb/blob/master/README.md to get the actual CAML for the view.
