Sort Picklist Values in Lightning Component | Salesforce Tutorials

In this article, you will learn to sort the values in Picklist in Lightning Component. You just have to add an additional line to your controller or helper of your Lightning Component.

In the below code, I am getting my Picklist values by "fetchPicklistValues" function. In the picklist, I am having numeric values from 1 to 12.
Without sorting the result will be 1,10,11,12,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 but after sorting the result will be 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12

        "fld": fieldName
    var opts = [];
    action.setCallback(this, function(response) {
        if (response.getState() == "SUCCESS") {
            var allValues = response.getReturnValue();
            if (allValues != undefined && allValues.length > 0) {
                    class: "optionClass",
                    label: "--- None ---",
                    value: ""
            allValues.sort(function(a, b){return a - b});
            for (var i = 0; i < allValues.length; i++) {
                    class: "optionClass",
                    label: allValues[i],
                    value: allValues[i]
            component.find(elementId).set("v.options", opts);
            var errors = response.getError();
