CFileFind and order in file search


Is there a way to order the file search made CFileFind::FindNextFile by say alphabetical order of the filenames, ascending order of LastFileModified etc ?.

No.

The files come back in an undefined order.  

Normally, the files come back in directory order; however that's a very implementation-dependent thing. What it exactly means is different for FAT, FAT32, NTFS, CDs, and remote files systems.

If you want a particular order, you need to build a list and sort it to that order for yourself.
