# Sort Complex Numbers (G Dataflow)

Sorts complex numbers in ascending or descending order with respect to real and imaginary parts or magnitude.

## complex numbers

Complex numbers to sort.

## order

Order to sort complex numbers.

Name Description
Ascending Sorts complex numbers in ascending order.
Descending Sorts complex numbers in descending order.

Default: Ascending

## method

Method this node uses to sort complex numbers.

Name Value Description
Real, Imaginary 0 Sorts elements with respect to their real parts first. For the elements with the same real parts, this node sorts them by their imaginary parts.
Magnitude, Real, Imaginary 1 Sorts elements with respect to their magnitude first. For the elements with the same magnitude, this node sorts them with respect to their real parts first and then with respect to their imaginary parts.
Magnitude, Phase Angle 2 Sorts elements with respect to their magnitude first. For the elements with the same magnitude, this node sorts them by their phase angle. The phase angle is in the range of −π to π.

Default: Real, Imaginary

## error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

## sorted complex numbers

Complex numbers sorted according to the order to sort.

## sorted index

Corresponding index of the complex number for each sorted complex number.

## error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
