Namespace: System.Collections.Specialized

bool IList.Contains (
	Object value
)
Not applicable.

The Object to locate in the StringCollection. The value can be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

This method determines equality by calling Object.Equals.

This method performs a linear search; therefore, this method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, this method uses the collection’s objects’ Equals and CompareTo methods on item to determine whether item exists. In the earlier versions of the .NET Framework, this determination was made by using the Equals and CompareTo methods of the item parameter on the objects in the collection.
