ThenBy - Comparer

Query
public void Linq36()
{
string[] words = { "aPPLE", "AbAcUs", "bRaNcH", "BlUeBeRrY", "ClOvEr", "cHeRry" };

var sortedWords =
words.OrderBy(a => a.Length)
.ThenBy(a => a, new CaseInsensitiveComparer());

ObjectDumper.Write(sortedWords);
}
Lambda Expression
public void Linq36()
{
string[] words = { "aPPLE", "AbAcUs", "bRaNcH", "BlUeBeRrY", "ClOvEr", "cHeRry" };

var sortedWords =
words.OrderBy(a => a.Length)
.ThenBy(a => a, new CaseInsensitiveComparer());

// Another way.
var sortedWords2 = words.OrderBy(word => word.Length);
var sortedWords3 = sortedWords2.ThenBy(a => a, new CaseInsensitiveComparer());

ObjectDumper.Write(sortedWords);

ObjectDumper.Write(sortedWords3);
}
Utility Method

{
public int Compare(string x, string y)
{
return string.Compare(x, y, StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase);
}
}
Output
