sort array C#


Recommended Posts

HiI want to sort an array but it did not work
<% @Page Language="C#" %><% @Import Namespace="System.IO" %><script language="C#" runat="server">DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(@"D:\Ufile\www\code");FileInfo[] rgFiles = di.GetFiles("*");Array.Sort(rgFiles) </script>

The FileInfo class doesn't implement the IComparable interface, so you can't use the Array.Sort method directly on it. You have to create your own class and implement the IComparer interface (<--- you won't implement the IComparable interface because FileInfo isn't inheritable).Create a class called SortFileInfo:
Imports System.IOPublic Class SortFileInfo	Implements IComparer	Public Function Compare(ByVal x As Object, ByVal y As Object) As Integer Implements System.Collections.IComparer.Compare		Dim file1, file2 As FileInfo		file1 = CType(x, FileInfo)		file2 = CType(y, FileInfo)		'change the .Name attribute if you want to sort by any other property		Return String.Compare(file1.Name, file2.Name)	End FunctionEnd Class

Now you can sort your array based on name:

		Dim di As New DirectoryInfo("C:\")		Dim rgFiles As FileInfo()		rgFiles = di.GetFiles("*")		Array.Sort(rgFiles, New SortFileInfo)		For Each file As FileInfo In rgFiles			TextBox1.AppendText(file.Name)			TextBox1.AppendText(vbNewLine)		Next
