'LINQ extension method.

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Linq

Module Module1
    Public Class Employee
        Public id As Integer
        Public name As String
        Public age As Integer
    End Class

    Sub Main()
        Dim empList = New List(Of Employee) From
        {
            New Employee() With {.id = 101, .name = "Amit", .age = 21},
            New Employee() With {.id = 102, .name = "Arun", .age = 22},
            New Employee() With {.id = 103, .name = "Aman", .age = 23},
            New Employee() With {.id = 104, .name = "Amar", .age = 24},
            New Employee() With {.id = 105, .name = "Akki", .age = 25}
        }

        Dim EmpsInDescOrder = empList.OrderByDescending(Function(e) e.name)

        Console.WriteLine("Employees detail in descending order: ")
        For Each emp As Employee In EmpsInDescOrder
            Console.WriteLine(emp.id & " " & emp.name & " " & emp.age)
        Next
    End Sub
End Module

Output:

Employees detail in descending order:
102 Arun 22
101 Amit 21
104 Amar 24
103 Aman 23
105 Akki 25
Press any key to continue . . .

Explanation:

In the above program, we created a module Module1 that contains a class Employee and the Main() function. The Main() function is the entry point for the program.

The Employee class contains data member "id", "name" and "age". In the Main() function, We created the list of employees. Here, we used OrderByDescending() LINQ method to sort the employee's list in descending order based on their names and print the employee's detail on the console screen.
