Assembly:  System.Web.Extensions (in System.Web.Extensions.dll)

Public Property ComparisonType As StringComparison

Property Value

Type: System.StringComparison
The type of string comparison to perform.


The DataFields property is Nothing.

This property enables you to use the StringComparison enumeration to specify how the search is performed. The StringComparison enumeration is used to specify whether a string comparison uses the current culture or the invariant culture, and whether it uses text or ordinal sort rules. If the data provider that the QueryExtender uses supports case sensitivity, you can use one of the comparison type properties to enable or ignore case sensitivity.
