I need to sort it with bubble sort from text file!
I made with sorting letters in words but don't know how to sort strings in alphabetical order, like that:

Use the "CompareTo()" method of the string class. It compares two strings and returns an integer, thusly:

int iCmp = Text[i].CompareTo(Text[i+1]);
if (iCmp < 0)
{
    // Text[i] is "less than" Text[i+1]
}
else if (iCmp > 0)
{
    // Text[i] is "greater than" Text[i+1];
}
else
{
    // Strings are equal
}
