SortRowNames


Unit:SDL_ntabed
Class: TNTabEd
Declaration: [1] procedure SortRowNames (Ascending: boolean; LowCol, LowRow, HighCol, HighRow: integer);
[2] procedure SortRowNames (Ascending, IgnoreCase: boolean; LowCol, LowRow, HighCol, HighRow: integer);

The method SortRowNames sorts the data contained in the range [LowCol,LowRow] to [HighCol,HighRow], the row names, and the row attributes according to the row names. The values outside this range are not affected. The parameter Ascending specifies whether the valus are to be sorted in ascending (TRUE) or descending (FALSE) order. The additional parameter IgnoreCase in version [2] of this method controls whether lower and upper case letters are distinguished.

The sorting is performed by a modified bubble sort (CombSort), which has been reported to be comparable in speed to QuickSort (see also R.Box, S. Lacey, BYTE magazine, April 1991).
