List(Of T).FindIndex Method (Int32, Predicate(Of T))
Searches for an element that matches the conditions defined by the specified predicate, and returns the zero-based index of the first occurrence within the range of elements in the List(Of T) that extends from the specified index to the last element.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Function FindIndex ( _ startIndex As Integer, _ match As Predicate(Of T) _ ) As Integer
- Type: System.Int32
The zero-based starting index of the search.
Return ValueType: System.Int32
The zero-based index of the first occurrence of an element that matches the conditions defined by match, if found; otherwise, –1.
The List(Of T) is searched forward starting at startIndex and ending at the last element.
The Predicate(Of T) is a delegate to a method that returns true if the object passed to it matches the conditions defined in the delegate. The elements of the current List(Of T) are individually passed to the Predicate(Of T) delegate.
This method performs a linear search; therefore, this method is an O(n) operation, where n is the number of elements from startIndex to the end of the List(Of T).
