String.IndexOf Method (String, Int32)
Reports the zero-based index of the first occurrence of the specified string in this instance. The search starts at a specified character position.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System.String
The string to seek.
- Type: System.Int32
The search starting position.
Index numbering starts from zero. The startIndex parameter can range from 0 to the length of the string instance. If startIndex equals the length of the string instance, the method returns -1.
This method performs a word (case-sensitive and culture-sensitive) search using the current culture. The search begins at the startIndex character position of this instance and continues until the last character position.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 first index of a substring that occurs after a particular character position by using the comparison rules of the current culture, call the IndexOf(String, Int32, StringComparison) method overload with a value of StringComparison.CurrentCulture for its comparisonType parameter.
