Represents an order field, used to sort information in a view.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.dll)

public interface OrderField : _OrderField

This is a .NET interface derived from a COM coclass that is required by managed code for interoperability with the corresponding COM object. Use this derived interface to access all method, property, and event members of the COM object. However, if a method or event you want to use shares the same name under the same COM object, cast to the corresponding primary interface to call the method, and cast to the latest events interface to connect to the event. Refer to this topic for information about the COM object. For information about the method and property members of the COM object, see _OrderField.

Use the Add method of the OrderFields object to add an Outlook item property to the SortFields collection for the following objects derived from the View object:

Use the ViewXMLSchemaName property to obtain the name of the order field as referenced in the XML definition of the view.

OrderField objects contained in an OrderFields collection are applied to Outlook items displayed in the view in the order in which the objects are contained in the collection. For each OrderField object, use the IsDescending property to determine whether to sort the contents of the order field in ascending or descending order.
