Custom Sorting Function

I am trying to sort the contents of a textbox (Which contains the names of people) alphabetically. When the user presses the button, the contents of the textbox is supposed to sort. This is what I have so far:

btn_alpha.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, alphabeticalSort);

function alphabeticalSort(Sort:Array):Array
for (var i:int = 0; i < Sort.length; i++)
    var sortArray:int = i;
    for (var ii = i+1; ii < Sort.length; ii++)
        if (Sort[ii]["Name"] < Sort[sortArray]["Name"])
            sortArray = ii;
    var temp:Object;
    temp = Sort[i];
    Sort[i] = Sort[sortArray];
    Sort[sortArray] = temp;

return Sort;

The program runs, but the textbox isn't sorted when the button is pressed. The only error that comes up is when you try and press the button, it says "TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert to Array."

Any suggestions on how to make this work would be appreciated!
