If you need to keep it as an array, you can write your own array sorting method. See the example section at

Otherwise, you can convert it to an ArrayList and just use the .sort() method.

I don't know why you have to do any of the above:  Array has a built-in sort method.

Array.Sort(yourArray, Function (left, right) right.CompareTo(left))

Open in new window

By saying "right.CompareTo(left)" you sort the list in descending order. If you said "left.CompareTo(right)" then it would be ascending. The "Function..." bit is a lamda expression.
