Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Overloads Function SortRows( _
   ByVal row As Integer, _
   ByVal rowCount As Integer, _
   ByVal sortInfo() As SortInfo _
) As Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage)Copy Code
Dim instance As SheetView
Dim row As Integer
Dim rowCount As Integer
Dim sortInfo() As SortInfo
Dim value As Boolean
value = instance.SortRows(row, rowCount, sortInfo)
public bool SortRows( 
   int row,
   int rowCount,
   SortInfo[] sortInfo


Index of first row in range to sort
Number of rows in range to sort
Array of SortInfo objects with the column indexes and sort order

Return Value

Boolean: true if successful; false otherwise


Use this method if you want to sort only a range of rows and not the entire sheet.

Use this method if you want to specify more than one column by which to sort, in other words, if you have more than one key for sorting.

The sortInfo array can contain multiple keys (multiple columns) and the first specified column is the primary key, etc. The sortInfo array can also contain multiple ways of comparing the sorted objects and it may be different for each key. For more information, refer to the SortInfo object.

This does not affect the data model, only how the data is displayed. Different overloads provide different ways to sort the rows.


This example sorts a range of rows.
