LastIndexOf Method (Char, Int32, Int32)

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

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

Type: System..::..Char
The Unicode character to seek.
Type: System..::..Int32
The starting position of the search. The search proceeds from startIndex toward the beginning of this instance.
Type: System..::..Int32
The number of character positions to examine.

Return Value

Type: System..::..Int32
The zero-based index position of value if that character is found, or -1 if it is not found or if the current instance equals String..::..Empty.

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 startIndex character position and proceeds backward toward the beginning of this instance until either value is found or count character positions have been examined. For example, if startIndex is Length - 1, the method searches backward count characters from the last character in the string. The search is case-sensitive.
