I am trying to order a list of files from a folder and display them in my app in descending order using a listbox is an intermediary to sort the files quickly. The problem is that all the file are created sequentilly in the source app...eg 42_test-1.jpg.
The listbox will sort them no problm until we reach the number 10 (after the dash), where it is sorted to occur right after the 1.
1,10,11,12,...2,20,....3,4,5,6,7,8,9

Is there another way to name the files to make sorting easier or is there another type of sort i should use?
Thanks in advance
