Help with Agent query (last N notes)
Mar 15th, 2009, 11:38am
I can't seem to find a way to limit the number of aliases contained in an Agent. In my case I need to find the latest 10 notes based on a user attribute "PublishDate."  I have a series of containers, each with a number of notes...

-> Topic1
-> Topic2
-> Topic3

I want the last 10 notes inside *any* of the topics based on PublishDate. Currently my "Recent" Agent query looks like this...


...but that gives me all notes in the topics when exporting. There's probably another way at this, but I'm having trouble finding it. Nothing like ^children(/Recent,10) I suppose.

You want first(container,n).  

If it's not convenient to simply invert the sorting order, make an auxilliary agent which looks inside() your first agent and sorts in the opposite direction.

Or (slapping forehead) use last(container,n)
