Sorts the input elements in ascending or descending order.
Name  Description  

a  Specifies a real or complex vector or matrix.  
b  Specifies the dimension of a across which to sort if a is a matrix. b is a scalar that accepts the following values.


order  Specifies the direction by which to sort elements. order is a string that accepts the following values.

Name  Description 

c  Returns the elements of a in ascending or descending order, depending on the value of order. LabVIEW sorts complex vectors by magnitude and angle, in that order. If a is a matrix, c returns a sorted by column or row, depending on the value of b. c is a vector or matrix of the same size as a. 
d  Returns the indexes in a of the elements in c. d is an integer vector or matrix of the same size as a. 
The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.
