I've implemented a TreeView which works well. One of the many columns is a

I'm looking for advice on how to sort a TreeView column that contains dates;
where the date is formatted (ex: Tue Feb 9, 8:58pm 2010) in a fairly typical
alphanumeric string.

An alpha sort is obviously not correct when looking at date information.

Does anyone know of a way to implement an ascending/descending "date" sort
of a TreeView column which contains dates?

I know I can easily convert to a completely numeric date but I'd rather not.

Not sure if this will help or not... but I had to do something similar
recently. I did away with trying to sort by the string itself, and
sorted instead by timestamp (-M) in an orcish maneuver. That might be
something you can do instead.
