Extension Methods Exemplified: Sorting Index-based Generic Lists

, 23 Aug 2008 CPOL
This article shows how extension methods can be used, e.g., for sorting index-based generic lists.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

using Extensions;

namespace Sorting_Extensions
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            //Create a sequence of random integers.
            Random rand = new Random();
            var randomSequence = Enumerable
                .Repeat(0, 10)
                .Select(i => rand.Next(0, 10));

            IList<int> list = randomSequence.ToList<int>();

            //Sort in using the extension method

            Console.Write("\n\nPress any key to exit...");

        private static void PrintOnScreen<T>(IList<T> list)
            foreach (T item in list)
                Console.Write("{0} ", item.ToString());
