Sorts given ListBox by either lbText, lbValue or lbData in normal or reversed order, using case-sensitive or case-insensitive comparison. This command supports UNICODE characters. When sorting by "VALUE", the rows with the same lbValue will additionally be sorted by lbText in the order specified by `reversedOrder` flag, text specified by `useTextRight` flag and case-sensitivity specified by `caseSensitive` flag.
  • This command supports referencing control via IDC as well, but as with any use of IDC in UI Control commands, a dialog should be present, i.e. UI user interaction is created with createDialog rather than createDisplay.
  • As this command supports UNICODE by default, which may result in slower sorting, you can switch it off with unicodeOff param.
GUI Control - ListBox


controlOrIDC lbSortBy [sortByType, reversedOrder, caseSensitive, useTextRight, unicodeOff]
controlOrIDC: Control or Number - the ListBox control or its IDC
sortByType: String - (Optional, default "TEXT") one of:
  • "TEXT"
  • "VALUE"
  • "DATA"
reversedOrder: Boolean - (Optional, default false) true for sorting in reversed order
caseSensitive: Boolean - (Optional, default false) true for using case-sensitive comparison
useTextRight: Boolean - (Optional, default false) true to sort by text right
unicodeOff: Boolean - (Optional, default false) true to switch off UNICODE conversion for faster sorting

Example 1:
with uiNamespace do { private _lb = findDisplay 46 createDisplay "RscDisplayEmpty" ctrlCreate ["RscListBox", -1]; _lb ctrlSetPosition [0,0,1,1]; _lb ctrlCommit 0; lbClear _lb; { _lb lbAdd (_x select 0); _lb lbSetValue [_forEachIndex, _x select 1]; } forEach [["В",1], ["Я",0], ["Б",1], ["Ю",0], ["А",1]]; _lb lbSortBy ["VALUE", false, false]; };
