# Organinizing values into order od highest to lowest

### Question

Hello! I need help with organizing dictionary values into list. So I have in example this kind of dict var parties = {party1 = 12, party2 = 84, party3 = 4} and I want to print them in order of highest to lowest which would look like this ”party2, party1, party3”

Hi there. I will structure the code like this so it is easier to understand…

``````extends Node2D

var parties = {
"party1": 12,
"party2": 84,
"party3": 4,
"party4": 14,
"party5": 2,
}

# Using a lambda function to make it more cleanish
# parties.keys() returns the keys in the dictionary
# Note that you could put this in a method and then return the sorted parties

var sorted_parties = parties.keys()
sorted_parties.sort_custom(func(a,b): # <- lambda function.
return parties[b] < parties[a]
# character ">" would be ascending, "<" is descending
)

# Print the sorted array
# Result: party 2, 4, 1, 3, 5
print(sorted_parties)
``````

This should do the trick
