Quick Method Of Sorting On Multiple Properties

by Jon Davis 24. June 2008 07:37

I’ve started replacing my custom List<T> sorts of


ret.Sort(new Comparison(delegate(MyClass o1, MyClass o2) { return o1.City.CompareTo(o2.City); } ) );


.., which doesn't seem to support multiple property sorts when I run Sort() multiple times (and I don're care to glean from the many multi-property sort samples on the web that have tens of lines of method execution), with ..

ret = new List<MyClass>(from r in ret orderby r.State, r.City select r);

Works like a charm. I'm slowly learning to dig LINQ-to-Objects ;)

Software in all forms is also his sole hobby, whether playing PC games or tinkering with programming them. "I was playing Defender on the Commodore 64," he reminisces, "when I decided at the age of 12 or so that I want to be a computer programmer when I grow up."
