Php Problem List files in order

Hey everybody!

I have this code here that shows images from a directory. Right now it seems to displaying the images in random order. Right now the images are numbered 01.jpg, 02.jpg etc. Could someone help me add code to mine and to display them in order?

<?php

function list_files($dir)
{
  if(is_dir($dir))
  {
  	echo '<div id="gallery" class="content">
				<div id="controls" class="controls"></div>
				<div class="clear"></div>
				<div class="slideshow-container">
					<div id="loading" class="loader"></div>
					<div id="slideshow" class="slideshow"></div>
				</div>
			</div><!-- gallery -->
	
			<div id="thumbs" class="navigation">
				<ul class="thumbs noscript">'."\n";
    if($handle = opendir($dir))
    {
      while(($file = readdir($handle)) !== false)
      {
        if($file != "." && $file != ".." && $file != "Thumbs.db" && strtolower(substr($file,strlen($file)-3,3))!='jpg'  && strtolower(substr($file,strlen($file)-3,3))!='gif' /*pesky windows, images..*/)
        {
		  echo '<li><a class="thumb" href="'.$dir.$file.'"><img src="'.$dir.$file.'" alt="" /></a></li>'."\n";

        }
        if($file != "." && $file != ".." && $file != "Thumbs.db" && strtolower(substr($file,strlen($file)-3,3))=='jpg' xor strtolower(substr($file,strlen($file)-3,3))=='gif' /*pesky windows, images..*/)
        {
		  echo '<li><a class="thumb" href="'.$dir.$file.'"><img src="'.$dir.$file.'" alt="" /></a></li>'."\n";
        }
      }
      echo '</ul>
			</div><!-- thumbs -->';
      closedir($handle);
    }
  }
}

?>

PHP scandir() will get you the list in a predictable order.  Then you can access the elements of the array to build the HTML document.  If you need to sort the array, this page will give some guidance.

Here's a PHP page I use to list 'executable' HTML files in sorted order on a server.  You can change the extensions in $extstr to image extensions like 'jpg' and 'gif'.
