Microsoft Silverlight will reach end of support after October 2021. Learn more.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Shared Sub Sort ( _ array As Array _ )
public static void Sort( Array array )
Each element of array must implement the IComparable interface to be capable of comparisons with every other element in array.
If the sort is not successfully completed, the results are undefined.
This method uses the QuickSort algorithm. This implementation performs an unstable sort; that is, if two elements are equal, their order might not be preserved. In contrast, a stable sort preserves the order of elements that are equal.
On average, this method is an O(n log n) operation, where n is the Length of array; in the worst case it is an O(n ^ 2) operation.
