Geek Week

The array of objects can be sort by using user defined function. This function compares the array of objects by its property. For example, the first example compares the l_name of objects and if l_name is small then it place into left otherwise place it into right position.

Example 1: This example sorts the array of objects by l_name property.




<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html
  
<head
    <title
        Sort array of objects
    </title>
</head
          
<body style = "text-align:center;"
      
    <h1 style = "color:green;"
        GeeksForGeeks 
    </h1
      
    <p id="demo2">GFG_Object = [ <br>
        { "f_name": "Geeks", "l_name": "_1" },
        <br><br>
        { "f_name": "for", "l_name": "_2" },
        <br><br>
        { "f_name": "GFG", "l_name": "_3" }
        <br>];
    </p
      
    <button onClick="fun()">
        sort
    </button>
      
    <p id="GFG"></p
      
    <!-- Script to compare the object and
        sort its content -->
    <script>
        function fun() {
            function compare(a, b) {
                if (a.l_name < b.l_name)
                    return -1;
                if (a.l_name > b.l_name)
                    return 1;
                return 0;
            }
            var GFG_Object = [ 
                { f_name: 'Geeks', l_name: '_2' },
                { f_name: 'for', l_name: '_1' },
                { f_name: 'GFG', l_name: '_3' }
            ];
              
            GFG_Object.sort(compare);
              
            document.getElementById("GFG").innerHTML
                    = JSON.stringify(GFG_Object);
        }
        </script
    </body
</html>
