This axis method uses deferred execution. However, it first enumerates its source collection, the sorts the nodes in document order, and then yields the results.

The following example creates a collection of nodes that are not in document order, and then uses this axis to create a new collection where the nodes are in document order.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

This example produces the following output:

<aaa>1</aaa>
<ccc>3</ccc>
<ddd>5</ddd>
