sort multi dimentional array by the value of specific key

 

Sample Array

Array (
[0] => Array
    (
        [iid] => 1
        [invitee] => 174
        [nid] => 324343
        [showtime] => 2010-05-09 15:15:00
        [location] => 13
        [status] => 1
        [created] => 2010-05-09 15:05:00
        [updated] => 2010-05-09 16:24:00
    )
[1] => Array
    (
        [iid] => 1
        [invitee] => 220
        [nid] => 21232
        [showtime] => 2010-05-09 15:15:00
        [location] => 12
        [status] => 0
        [created] => 2010-05-10 18:11:00
        [updated] => 2010-05-10 18:11:00
    ))

 Snippet

function cmp($a, $b) {
    if ($a['status'] == $b['status']) {
        return 0;
    }
    return ($a['status'] < $b['status']) ? -1 : 1;
}

usort($array, "cmp");

Note
