Here's how you can do it:

   Private Sub SortFiles()

        Dim mydir As String = "C:\temp"

        Dim list As New List(Of System.IO.FileInfo)
        list.AddRange(New IO.DirectoryInfo(mydir).GetFiles("*.txt"))
        list.Sort(AddressOf Sort)

        For Each myfile As System.IO.FileInfo In list
            Debug.WriteLine(myfile.Name)

        Next

    End Sub

    Private Function Sort(ByVal x As IO.FileInfo, ByVal y As IO.FileInfo) As Integer

        Return x.Name.CompareTo(y.Name)

    End Function
