IResultData::Sort method (mmc.h)

The IResultData::Sort method sorts all items in the result pane.

Syntax

HRESULT Sort(
  int    nColumn,
  DWORD  dwSortOptions,
  LPARAM lUserParam
);

Parameters

nColumn

An index of the column header clicked.

dwSortOptions

The sort options to be used during the sort operation. This value can be a combination of the following:

RSI_DESCENDING = 0x0001

The sort should be in descending order. The default is to sort in ascending order.

RSI_NOSORTICON = 0x0002

Instructs MMC to remove the sort arrow icon. This option is useful when the snap-in performs a custom sort operation.

lUserParam

A value that specifies information determined by the user. This parameter can contain a variety of entries such as including sort order or context information.

Return value

This method can return one of these values.

Remarks

If your snap-in implements the IResultDataCompare or the IResultDataCompareEx interface, MMC calls the interface's Compare method to allow the snap-in to compare list items. Otherwise, MMC uses a default string-compare function.

There is no sorting function for a virtual list. To allow virtual list sorting the snap-in must implement the IResultOwnerData interface. When IResultData::Sort is called, MMC forwards the call to IResultOwnerData::SortItems.
