I have an ArrayList that I am looking to sort on a field. I am doing

$arrayList->sort('Title');

which works except for the fact that it sorts based on case sensitivity. I would like it to be like
  • Example1
  • example2
  • Last

instead of

  • Example1
  • Last
  • example2

Strange! I would have thought it would be case insensitive. You could simply export the array list as an array ($list->map()) then write your own sort logic.

Thanks Willr! I kinda wondered if that isn't what I was going to have to do. I couldn't believe it was case sensitive either. I didn't see any reason it should have been.
