Hello,
         I have an issue with cs6 that i can not figure out. I have tried sorting with php, however it doesn't seem to work. I have spent 1 hour researching this and cannot find an answer to how to sort it, please help. I need to alphanumerically order this array.
      var products =["Printer","Tablet","Router"];

if it's Javascript, try:

products.sort();

Open in new window


like:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<p>Click the button to sort the array.</p>

<button onclick="myFunction()">Try it</button>

<p id="demo"></p>
<p id="demo2"></p>

<script>
var products = ["Printer", "Tablet", "Router"];
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = products;

function myFunction() {
    products.sort();
    document.getElementById("demo2").innerHTML = products ;
}
</script>

</body>
</html>

if you have array in php, after is the wrong syntax, and you can try this instead:
<?php
$products = array("Printer","Tablet","Router");
$clength = count($products);

echo "Before:<br>";

for($x = 0; $x < $clength; $x++) {
    echo $products[$x];
    echo "<br>";
}

sort($products);

echo "<br>After:<br>";

for($x = 0; $x < $clength; $x++) {
    echo $products[$x];
    echo "<br>";
}
?>
