Submitted by Nidhi, on August 29, 2020

Here we will create a list of student names and then sort them in descending order using the OrderByDescending() method.


The source code to sort student names in descending order using Linq is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully on Microsoft Visual Studio.

//C# program to sort student names in 
//descending order using Linq.

using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Collections.Generic;

class Demo
    static void Main(string[] args)
        List<string> students = new List<string>() { "Rocky","Mohan", "Roni", "Ayan", "Kalpna" };

        var result = students.OrderByDescending(str => str);

        Console.WriteLine("Sorted list in Descending order:");
        foreach (string stud in result)
            Console.Write(stud + " ");


Sorted list in Descending order:
Roni Rocky Mohan Kalpna Ayan
Press any key to continue . . .


In the above program, we created a Demo class that contains the Main() method to start the execution of the program. In the main() method we created the list of student names and then we sort them using the OrderByDescending() method using the below code.

var result = students.OrderByDescending(str => str);

Then we printed the filtered values on the console screen.
