In this there is a contact List.

This list is what I want sorted

MickeysAuthor Commented:
To be specifc:   List<Contact> contact;
in ContactManager.cs
0
 
Göran AnderssonCommented:
I suggest that you use the interface IComparable<Contact> instead of the interface IComparable.

Make the Contact class implement the interface, and it's CompareTo method:

class Contact : IComparable<Contact> {

   public int CompareTo(Contact other) {
      int result = this.LastName.CompareTo(other.LastName);
      if (result == 0) {
         result = this.FirstName.CompareTo(other.FirstName);
      }
      return result;
   }

   ...

}

Then you can easily sort the contacts:

contact.Sort();
