In this video, learn how to reuse Ion forms to make querying the API with sort and search more discoverable.
- [Instructor] Earlier in the course, we created a sort…and search syntax that could be used to query collections.…The sort or search parameters are sent to the collection…as GET query string parameters like this.…The client might send slash rooms,…orderBy equals rate, or to search,…they might say slash rooms,…search name starts with Oxford,…or any combination of these.…This may not look like a form at first glance,…but query string parameters in a GET are a form…just like parameters in a POST body are.…
In order to describe the sort and search syntax…and make it discoverable for clients,…we can model it as an Ion form…and attach the form to the collection response.…When we're done, it'll look something like this.…Just like other forms, this form will have an href,…it'll have a method, which in this case is GET.…The query-form relation will be used…to indicate what type of form this is to the client,…and, in the value property, will describe the different…search and sort syntaxes that are available.…We'll use the same technique of generating this form…
