Use this code to get the same u told,

string input = "A3;A2;A5;A1;A4";
    string[] splits = input.Split(';');
    string output = "";
    foreach (string a in splits)
      output += "," + a;
    output = output.Remove(0, 1);

output variable will contain A1,A2,A3,A4,A5

Here is the way, but if you would have tried you could improve your skills

what i have done is split the using the Split method and storing in list and iterating and displaying 

string str = "A3;A2;A5;A1;A4";
      List<string> names = str.Split(';').ToList<string>();
      string newString = string.Empty;
      foreach (string s in names)
        newString += s.ToString() + ";";

string completeString = "A3;A2;A5;A1;A4";
var array = completeString.Split(new char[] { ';' }).OrderBy(s => s.ToString());
