Is there a way to sort a glacial list numerically - as opposed to alphabetically?

Hello,

I have a glacial list that I need to sort.

I've been doing it like this:

this.myGlacialList.SortType = GlacialComponents.Controls.SortTypes.QuickSort;

Only problem I'm having is that I need for it to sort numerically rather than alphabetically.

When I put numbers in a column like so:  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

and then click on the column header to sort them, it sorts them alphabetically, so the result is this:

1, 10, 11, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Is there any way to do this in numeric order?

Thanks in advance,
Tim

You could pad all numbers with a fixed number of zeroes - the number of zeroes dependent on the max number of entries in your list e.g.,

01 02 03 04 05 ... for a list extending up to 99
001 002 003 004 ... for a list extending to 999

Alternatively, define the column as a numeric column (depending on what app you are using)
