Returns the position of the first occurrence of a substring.
The indexOf method returns the beginning of the substring in the String object. If the substring is not found, -1 is returned.
If startindex is negative, startindex is treated as zero. If it is greater than the highest index, it is treated as the highest index.
Searching is performed from left to right. Otherwise, this method is identical to lastIndexOf.
The following example illustrates the use of the indexOf method.
