ccIgnorePunctuationAndSpaceSorts text while ignoring punctuation and spaces (for more details, see the Notes)
ccIgnoreSpaceSorts text while ignoring leading and trailing spaces in the strings
ccLexicographicOrderSorts the strings in lexicographical order (for example, 'é' is between 'e' and 'f')
ccNormal
(Default value)
Standard comparison, similar to the = operator
ccRespectNumericSorts text while taking into account the numeric values within the strings (e.g., "10" comes after "9").
sortDefaultPerforms a case-insensitive and accent-insensitive sort. Ignores spaces
sortWithoutFunctionGxxxSorts text while ignoring gImage, gStoredValue, etc., ... By default, these elements are taken into account for the sort.

Remarks

Taking the sort order into account

  • For List and Combo Box controls, the sort order specified with the SortOption property is applied immediately.
  • For columns in Table or TreeView Table controls, TableSort must be called to apply the specified sort order. For example:
    COL_Name.SortOption = ccLexicographicOrder
    TableSort(TABLE_Name, "+COL_Name")

Characters taken into account for punctuation and spaces

The characters taken into account for punctuation and spaces are provided by the system. To get the list of these characters, write the following WLanguage code:
s is string
FOR i = 0 TO 255
IF Charact(i) <> StringFormat(Charact(i), ccIgnorePunctuationAndSpace) THEN
 s += Charact(i)
END
END
