/// <summary>
/// method to perform a selection sort on an array
/// </summary>
public static void SelectionSort()
	//variable to hold the array size
	int[] arrayNum = new int[100];
	int minNum;
	bool isNum = false;
	int sizeNum;
	//ask the user for the size of the array
	Console.WriteLine("Number of elements in the array ?");
	//read in the value
	string sizeString = Console.ReadLine();
	isNum = Int32.TryParse(sizeString, out sizeNum);
	//now check for a numeric value
		//ask the user for the array values
		Console.WriteLine("Enter array values (numeric).");
		//now we loop to the size of the array
		for (int i = 0; i < sizeNum; i++)
			//temp value for the loop
			int temp;
			//read in the users value
			string arrayValue = Console.ReadLine();
			//use TryParse to convert to number
			isNum = Int32.TryParse(arrayValue, out temp);
			//now make sure it's numeric
			if (isNum)
				arrayNum[i] = temp;
				Console.WriteLine("Array values must be numeric!");

		//start a 2nd loop for the size of the array
		for (int j = 0; j < sizeNum - 1; j++)
			//assign value to value of the incrementer
			minNum = j;

			//start a 3rd loop
			for (int k = j + 1; k < sizeNum; k++)
				//check this index of the array to see if it's larger
				//that the index of the second loop
				if (arrayNum[minNum] > arrayNum[k])
					minNum = k;

			//now see if the minNum isnt equal to the index of the 3rd loop
			if (minNum != j)
				//now we start the sorting
				int finalNum = arrayNum[j];
				arrayNum[j] = arrayNum[minNum];
				arrayNum[minNum] = finalNum;

		//write out the sorted value of the initial array
		Console.WriteLine("Selection Sort results: ");
		//now a final loop to retrieve the items in the sorted value
		for (int l = 0; l < sizeNum; l++)
		Console.WriteLine("The array size must be numeric!");

Are you receiving any errors? Does this code not work that way you intended it? When asking for help there are a couple items that are vital in order for someone to properly help you:
  • Post the code you're having problems with
  • Post the exact error you're receiving, if you are receiving one
  • If no error explain what the code is doing versus what you want it to do
  • Post your question in the body of your post, not the description field
