public:
 virtual System::ComponentModel::PropertyDescriptorCollection ^ Sort(System::Collections::IComparer ^ comparer);
public virtual System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection Sort (System.Collections.IComparer comparer);
abstract member Sort : System.Collections.IComparer -> System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection
override this.Sort : System.Collections.IComparer -> System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection

Sort(String[])

Sorts the members of this collection. The specified order is applied first, followed by the default sort for this collection, which is usually alphabetical.

public:
 virtual System::ComponentModel::PropertyDescriptorCollection ^ Sort(cli::array <System::String ^> ^ names);
public virtual System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection Sort (string[] names);
abstract member Sort : string[] -> System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection
override this.Sort : string[] -> System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection
Public Overridable Function Sort (names As String()) As PropertyDescriptorCollection

Parameters

names
String[]

Returns

Examples

The following code example defines the sort order for the Sort method. If the PropertyDescriptorCollection contains four PropertyDescriptor objects with the names A, B, C, and D, the properties of myNewColl would be sorted in the order D, B, A, and C.

array<String^>^ temp0 = {"D","B"};
myNewColl = this->Sort( temp0 );
myNewColl = this.Sort(new string[]{"D", "B"});
myNewColl = Me.Sort(New String() {"D", "B"})
