String::LastIndexOf Method (String)

Reports the zero-based index position of the last occurrence of a specified string within this instance.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public:
int LastIndexOf(
	String^ value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::String
The string to seek.

Return Value

Type: System::Int32
The zero-based index position of value if that string is found, or -1 if it is not. If value is String::Empty, the return value is the last index position in this instance.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

value is nullptr.

Index numbering starts from zero. That is, the first character in the string is at index zero and the last is at Length - 1.

The search begins at the last character position of this instance and proceeds backward toward the beginning until either value is found or the first character position has been examined.

This method performs a word (case-sensitive and culture-sensitive) search using the current culture.

Notes to Callers

As explained in Best Practices for Using Strings in the .NET Framework, we recommend that you avoid calling string comparison methods that substitute default values and instead call methods that require parameters to be explicitly specified. To find the last index of a substring within a string instance by using the comparison rules of the current culture, call the LastIndexOf(String, StringComparison) method overload with a value of StringComparison::CurrentCulture for its comparisonType parameter.

The following example removes opening and closing HTML tags from a string if the tags begin and end the string. If a string ends with a closing bracket character (">"), the example uses the LastIndexOf method to locate the start of the end tag.
