Parameter Description Example
ListRef The reference to the list returned from QuickList.New function. $List
Expression The expression to evaluate.
Can include "leftValue" and "rightValue" as variables.
"leftValue > rightValue"

Result

Returns OK or error.

Description

Sorts a list with using an expression to evaluate.
The expression is run every time two values are compared, so keep it quick. It should return 1 if leftValue is smaller than rightValue.

Our normal QuickList.Sort is faster due to not having the overhead of evaluating expressions.
