  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

BubbleSort takes a return-separated list of values and returns a sorted list. The iterations value should be initially set to the value of ValueCount ( inputValues ).

The bubble sort algorithm is simple to implement but it becomes fairly slow as the number of values increases.

Note: The BubbleSort function requires the BubbleSort_SlideValue function.
