AFCollectionTSort Method

Sorts the items in the entire collection using the default comparer.

Namespace:  OSIsoft.AF
Assembly:  OSIsoft.AFSDK (in OSIsoft.AFSDK.dll) Version:
public void Sort()


InvalidOperationException If the size of the collection is too large to perform the operation. This occurs when the number of items in the collection is greater than a page size and the IsPaging property is .

This method uses the default comparer for type T to determine the order of the items in the collection. If the item has a name, then the default comparer will normally sort the collection based upon the item's name.

This method uses Array.Sort, which uses the QuickSort algorithm. This implementation performs an unstable sort; that is, if two items are equal, their order might not be preserved. In contrast, a stable sort preserves the order of the items that are equal.

On average, this method is an O(n log n) operation, where n is Count; in the worst case it is an O(n^2) operation.
