String::LastIndexOf Method (Char)
Reports the zero-based index position of the last occurrence of a specified Unicode character within this instance.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Index numbering starts from zero. That is, the first character in the string is at index zero and the last is at Length - 1.
This method begins searching 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. 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 defines an ExtractFilename method that uses the method to find the last directory separator character in a string and to extract the string's file name. If the file exists, the method returns the file name without its path.
