public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Tuple<string, double, int>[] scores = 
                    { Tuple.Create("Jack", 78.8, 8),
                      Tuple.Create("Abbey", 92.1, 9), 
                      Tuple.Create("Dave", 88.3, 9),
                      Tuple.Create("Sam", 91.7, 8), 
                      Tuple.Create("Ed", 71.2, 5),
                      Tuple.Create("Penelope", 82.9, 8),
                      Tuple.Create("Linda", 99.0, 9),
                      Tuple.Create("Judith", 84.3, 9) };
      Array.Sort(scores);
      foreach (var score in scores)
         Console.WriteLine(score.ToString());
   }
}
// The example displays the following output;
//    (Abbey, 92.1, 9)
//    (Dave, 88.3, 9)
//    (Ed, 71.2, 5)
//    (Jack, 78.8, 8)
//    (Judith, 84.3, 9)

      Dim scores() = 
                { Tuple.Create("Jack", 78.8, 8),

                  Tuple.Create("Judith", 84.3, 9) }
      Array.Sort(scores)
      For Each score In scores
         Console.WriteLine(score.ToString())
      Next
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output;

Remarks

The string returned by this method takes the form (Item1, Item2, Item3), where Item1, Item2, and Item3 represent the values of the Item1, Item2, and Item3 properties, respectively. If any of the property values is null, it is represented as String.Empty.
