tWaitForFile - what's the order to process multiple files

Hi
I use tWaitForFile to process files in a setup folder. The setting is as screenshot below.
   
What is the order to process files (e.g. 1000 files) ?
Is it order by "filename" or "time stamp of file creation" or "something else"?   
Cheers

Hi,
It should be ordered  by "time stamp of file creation" if your choose "a file is created" trigger action option.
You can use tjava component to print out the message of file creation time and name.
Please take a look at component reference about:TalendHelpCenter:tWaitForFile
Best regards
Sabrina
