Dynamic Linq OrderBy Extension

Few days ago as usualy I working on my project and I made a function where I'm passing field name for sorting  table using Linq stuff. I was in need of an OrderBy extension method that could take a string field parameter in OrderBy and sort a IQueryable<> or IEnumerable<> collection. I was playing around implementation that could work, but I just wasn't satisfied with its internals (quite a bit of reflection to get the correct type to construct a LambdaExpression, etc)

At any rate, I couldn't leave well enough alone, and, after a bit of Googling, I ran across this StackOverflow answer about Dynamic LINQ OrderBy. The extension method was exactly what I was looking for.

So, I though I would post up my version in case anybody finds it useful. It handles the following inputs:

I hope this will be helpful for anybody.
