Description

The following code orders a list view in reverse alphabetical order on the click of a button. The callback function CustomSortProc calls the global CompareText function and negates its return value.

Code

function CustomSortProc(Item1, Item2: TListItem; ParamSort: integer): integer; stdcall;
begin
  Result := -CompareText(Item1.Caption,Item2.Caption);
end;
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ListView1.CustomSort(@CustomSortProc, 0);
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var ListItem : TListItem;
begin
  ListView1.ViewStyle := vsList;
  ListItem := ListView1.Items.Add;
  ListItem.Caption := 'Apples';
  ListItem := ListView1.Items.Add;
  ListItem.Caption := 'Oranges';
  ListItem := ListView1.Items.Add;
  ListItem.Caption := 'Pears';
end;
