Hello there

Ive got a listview which has a column marked 'priority'.
Listview.items. doesnt have a sort item provided
so I can sort tasks based on say column 3 which is marked 'priority'

I want to sort my tasks in the listview based on the priority in column 3.

Anyone knows hows its done?

You will have to go for custom sorting.
Basically you define a callback compare function that will compare two items on their third subitem and configure the TListView to use that.
Take a look at CustomSort method of the TListView and at the OnCompare event of TListView

If you need more details, please say.

From help:

procedure TForm1.ListView1ColumnClick(Sender: TObject; Column: TListColumn);

begin
  ColumnToSort := Column.Index;
  (Sender as TCustomListView).AlphaSort;
end;


The OnCompare event handler causes the list view to sort on the selected column:

procedure TForm1.ListView1Compare(Sender: TObject; Item1, Item2: TListItem; Data: Integer; var Compare: Integer);
var
  ix: Integer;
begin
  if ColumnToSort = 0 then
    Compare := CompareText(Item1.Caption,Item2.Caption)
  else begin
   ix := ColumnToSort - 1;
   Compare := CompareText(Item1.SubItems[ix],Item2.SubItems[ix]);
  end;

end;
