The function compares and arranges the values present in the ArrayObject according to the given comparison function. This method does not affects the key-value associations.


void uasort($comparator) 

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter $comparator which is the user defined comparison function. This comparison function in turn accepts two arguments which are the values of the ArrayObject and returns less than, equals to or greater than zero if the first argument is less than, equals to or greater than zero respectively.

// PHP program to illustrate the
// uasort() function
$arr = array("Welcome"=>"1", "to" => "2", "GfG" => "3");
// Create array object
$arrObject = new ArrayObject($arr);
// Declare a comparison function to sort 
// values in descending order
function comparison($val1, $val2) {
    if ($val1 == $val2) {
        return 0;
    else if($val1 > $val2)
        return -1;
