Last updated: Jul 11, 2022
Hi,I'm trying to query an array but I want the last 10 elements of that array. Is it possible to do this one one query? This is what I'm trying to do and I get an error:

  *[_type == "archives"] {
    links[(count(links) - 10))...count(links))]
In this case
is an array.

Unfortunately it's not possible to do calculations in a slice. For use cases like pagination we currently recommend managing your state and slices on your front end.

Unfortunate but thanks for the response.

You should be able to use negative slicing:
. Negative offsets count from the end, with -1 being the last element.
I'm not in front a computer right now, but I
believe this works correctly if the array is less than 10 elements, i.e. the slice start is clamped to the range [0, length-1].

Oh thank you. I think for my use case, it works out well.
