String.LastIndexOfAny Method (Char[], Int32, Int32)

Reports the zero-based index position of the last occurrence in this instance of one or more characters specified in a Unicode array. The search starts at a specified character position and proceeds backward toward the beginning of the string for a specified number of character positions.

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

member LastIndexOfAny : 
        anyOf:char[] * 
        startIndex:int * 
        count:int -> int

Parameters

anyOf
Type: System.Char[]

A Unicode character array containing one or more characters to seek.

startIndex
Type: System.Int32

The search starting position. The search proceeds from startIndex toward the beginning of this instance.

count
Type: System.Int32

The number of character positions to examine.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
The index position of the last occurrence in this instance where any character in anyOf was found; -1 if no character in anyOf was found or if the current instance equals String.Empty.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

anyOf is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The current instance does not equal String.Empty, and count or startIndex is negative.

-or-

The current instance does not equal String.Empty, and startIndex minus count + 1 is less than zero.

Index numbering starts from zero.

This method begins searching at the startIndex character position of this instance and proceeds backward toward the beginning until either a character in anyOf is found or count character positions have been examined. The search is case-sensitive.

This method performs an ordinal (culture-insensitive) search, where a character is considered equivalent to another character only if their Unicode scalar values are the same. To perform a culture-sensitive search, use the CompareInfo.LastIndexOf method, where a Unicode scalar value representing a precomposed character, such as the ligature "Æ" (U+00C6), might be considered equivalent to any occurrence of the character's components in the correct sequence, such as "AE" (U+0041, U+0045), depending on the culture.

The following example finds the index of the last occurrence of any character in the string "aid" within a substring of another string.
