I have a directory with 40 files with names from 0 to 39 (for example),
I am trying to get the file with the largest number in its name (which means I need to get "39")
I am trying to sort the directory..
I have tried using the following topics:
c# - How to retrieve list of files in directory, sorted by name
Sorting the result of Directory.GetFiles in C#
Nothing works for me..
I tried each of the methods - using Linq and the others..
and I dunno why..
I get the following result of the sorting (check picture below):
Thanks for the help,
It is only logical that they would be sorted that way, you would bring in some semantics to sort it by number, namely parse all the file names to numbers, then sort the files by that.
files.OrderBy(path => Int32.Parse(Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(path)))
Last() to get the file with the highest number.
