Dear All,
 
I have two arrays (array1 and array2)with double type data. I want to sort array1 to ascending order, and array2 with corresponding to the array1 indexes. Is this possible? Example below,
 
Array1(0) = 2.30
Array1(1) = 4.20
Array1(2) = 1.90
Array1(3) = 0.20
Array1(4) = 0.88
 
Array2(0) = 0.19
Array2(1) = 0.002
Array2(2) = 0.20
Array2(3) = 0.45
Array2(4) = 1.8
 
Resulted arrays should be as,
 
Result1(0) = 4.20
Result1(1) = 2.30
Result1(2) = 1.90
Result1(3) = 0.88
Result1(4) = 0.20
 
Result2(0) = 0.002
Result2(1) = 0.19
Result2(2) = 0.20
Result2(3) = 1.8
Result2(4) = 0.45
 
Can anybody help me to get these results arrays? I use VB.NET 2010.
Thanks

Solution 1

The Array.Sort(Of TKey, TValue) Method (TKey(), TValue(), IComparer(Of TKey)) explained here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/x8kwfbye.aspx[^] can be used for this purpose. In the present case, as the sorting is to be done in Descending order IComparer is required, which is explained here
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8ehhxeaf.aspx#Y700[^]
is required
 
Private Sub Main()
    Dim Array1(4) As  Double
    Dim Array2(4) As Double
 
    Array1(0) = 2.3
    Array1(1) = 4.2
    Array1(2) = 1.9
    Array1(3) = 0.2
    Array1(4) = 0.88
 
    Array2(0) = 0.19
    Array2(1) = 0.002
    Array2(2) = 0.2
    Array2(3) = 0.45
    Array2(4) = 1.8
 
    Array.Sort(Of Double, Double)(Array1, Array2, New ItemComparer())
 
End Sub
 
'ItemComparer for sorting in the Descending order
Public Class ItemComparer
    Implements IComparer(Of Double)
 
    Public Function Compare(x As Double, y As Double) As Integer _
        Implements IComparer(Of Double).Compare
 
        Return y.CompareTo(x)
    End Function
End Class
