ItemSortType Enumeration

Enumeration used to determine how UltraExplorerBarItem objects are sorted within their respective UltraExplorerBarGroup.
Public Enum ItemSortType 
   Inherits System.Enum
public enum ItemSortType : System.Enum 
AscendingItems are sorted in ascending alphabetical order.
DefaultItems are sorted as determined by the UltraExplorerBar control.
DescendingItems are sorted in descending alphabetical order.
NoneItems are not sorted.
The following code defines a custom comparer class and sets the sort type and sort comparer for all Groups.

Imports System.Diagnostics

Imports Infragistics.Win.UltraWinExplorerBar

Public Class MyComparer
	Implements IComparer

	Public Sub New()

	End Sub

	Public Overridable Overloads Function Compare(ByVal obj1 As Object, ByVal obj2 As Object) As Integer Implements IComparer.Compare
		Dim item1 As UltraExplorerBarItem = obj1
		Dim item2 As UltraExplorerBarItem = obj2

		' Do a case insensitive compare.
		Return String.Compare(item1.Text, item2.Text, True)
	End Function

End Class

	Private Sub Button50_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles button50.Click

		' Set the item sort to Descending for all groups.
		Me.ultraExplorerBar1.GroupSettings.ItemSort = ItemSortType.Descending

		' Set the item sort comparer to an instance of our custom comparer.
		Me.ultraExplorerBar1.GroupSettings.ItemSortComparer = New MyComparer()

	End Sub

		private void button50_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
			// Set the item sort to Descending for all groups.
			this.ultraExplorerBar1.GroupSettings.ItemSort = ItemSortType.Descending;

			// Set the item sort comparer to an instance of our custom comparer.
			this.ultraExplorerBar1.GroupSettings.ItemSortComparer = new MyComparer();
