C# Orderby Descending

CsharpProgrammingServer Side Programming

Use Orderby descending in C# to sort elements in descending order.

The following is our list −

IList<Employee> emp = new List<Employee>() {
new Employee() { EmployeeRank = 3, EmpName = "Tom", EmpMarks = 90 } ,
new Employee() { EmployeeRank = 4, EmpName = "Katie", EmpMarks = 95 }
};

Now to sort the list according to Student name, use Orderby. The default is ascending, therefore for descending order, use descending.

var res = from str in emp orderby str.EmpName descending select str;

Here is the complete code.

Example

 Live Demo

using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Collections.Generic;
public class Demo {
   public static void Main() {
      IList<Employee> emp = new List<Employee>() {
         new Employee() { EmployeeRank = 4, EmpName = "Amit", EmpMarks = 90 } ,
         new Employee() { EmployeeRank = 05, EmpName = "Raman", EmpMarks = 95 }
      };
      var res = from str in emp orderby str.EmpName descending select str;
      Console.WriteLine("Student List (Descending Order):");
      foreach (var list in res)
      Console.WriteLine(list.EmpName);
   }
}

public class Employee {
   public int EmployeeRank { get; set; }
   public string EmpName { get; set; }
   public int EmpMarks { get; set; }
}

Output

Student List (Descending Order):
Raman
Amit
