How to Sort a List<T> by a property in the object

I have a class called

Order
which has properties such as
OrderId
,
OrderDate
,
Quantity
, and
Total
. I have a list of this
Order
class:

List<Order> objListOrder = new List<Order>();
GetOrderList(objListOrder); // fill list of orders


Now I want to sort the list based on one property of the
Order
object, for example I need to sort it by the order date or order id.

How can i do this in C#?

Answer

The easiest way I can think of is to use Linq:

List<Order> SortedList = objListOrder.OrderBy(o=>o.OrderDate).ToList();
