The following is a procedure to sort from n-thcharacter of item:

procedure mySort( lb: tListBox; n: integer);
var i: longint;  s: string;
begin
  with lb do begin
    sorted:= false;
    for i:= 0 to items.Count-1 do begin
      s:= items[ i];
      items[ i]:= copy( s, n, length(s))+ copy( s, 1, n-1);
    end; {for}
    sorted:= true;
    sorted:= false;
    for i:= 0 to items.Count-1 do begin
      s:= items[ i];
      items[ i]:= copy( s, length( s)-n+2, length(s))
                  + copy( s, 1, length(s)-n+1);
    end; {for}
  end; {with}
end;
