Sort by date!

hi guys,

i have this array that i need to sort by name or date.

Sorting by name worked out pretty well of course, but the sorting by date is bit too tricky :S

var test:Array = [{name:“name1”,date:“10-01-2007”},{name:“name2”,date:“01-02-2007”}];

if i try to sort the date, since it’s a string it doesn’t sort properly.
also tried


but of course it sorts left to right 10 vs 01 and then it hits “-”
and that’s about it, which is expected.

so please help me finding a way to sort this out :S

some sample or guidance, would probably need to start sorting in this order somehow

any help or guidance is appreciated.
