Sorting Combobox

Hi everyone,

I need to sort the content of a combobox alphbetically but the problem is that string starts with a numeric value, example -

10002489 Tempo
10001075 Cosmos
10001158 Lining

Hope someone can please help,
Thank you.

RE: Sorting Combobox


Instead of comparing the whole strings compare only their relevant parts.

If all numeric prefixes are 8 character long as in the example, Copy(str,10,Length(str)) is enough. Otherwise just take the part after the first space : Copy(str,Pos(' ',str)+1,Length(str)) .
