IndexOf Method (Array, Object)
[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
Searches for the specified object and returns the index of the first occurrence within the entire one-dimensional Array.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System..::..Object
The object to locate in array.
Return ValueType: System..::..Int32
The index of the first occurrence of value within the entire array, if found; otherwise, the lower bound of the array minus 1.
array is nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
array is multidimensional.
The one-dimensional Array is searched forward starting at the first element and ending at the last element.
The elements are compared to the specified value using the Object..::..Equals method. If the element type is a nonintrinsic (user-defined) type, the Equals implementation of that type is used.
Since most arrays will have a lower bound of zero, this method would generally return –1 when value is not found. In the rare case that the lower bound of the array is equal to Int32..::..MinValue and value is not found, this method returns Int32..::..MaxValue, which is System.Int32.MinValue - 1.
This method is an O(n) operation, where n is the Length of array.
