I am making a visual web part for sharepoint 2010. I have a SPFolder object and I want to get all items in it, but I want to sort it by a specific field. I want to do this by CAML query instead of using a view.

I am currently doing this by return library.GetItemsInFolder(library.DefaultView, folder);. It doesn't seem to contain a parameter for a CAML query.

Does anyone know how to do this?



You can use the SPQuery.

SPQuery Query = new SPQuery();
Query.Folder = SPFolder Object;
Query.Query =  "insert caml query here..."
SPListItemCollection collListItems = List.GetItems(oQuery);

I would suggest doing some reading first before implementing this if you haven't used Spquery before.... You may want to look into the row limits and view attributes properties...
