Sorts a tensor.

    values, axis=-1, direction='ASCENDING', name=None


import tensorflow as tf
a = [1, 10, 26.9, 2.8, 166.32, 62.3]
b = tf.sort(a,axis=-1,direction='ASCENDING',name=None)
c = tf.keras.backend.eval(b)
# Here, c = [  1.     2.8   10.    26.9   62.3  166.32]


  • values: 1-D or higher numeric Tensor.
  • axis: The axis along which to sort. The default is -1, which sorts the last axis.
  • direction: The direction in which to sort the values ('ASCENDING' or 'DESCENDING').
  • name: Optional name for the operation.


A Tensor with the same dtype and shape as values, with the elements sorted along the given axis.


  • ValueError: If axis is not a constant scalar, or the direction is invalid.
