Array.LastIndexOf Method (Array, Object)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System.Object
The object to locate in array.
Return ValueType: System.Int32
The index of the last occurrence of value within the entire array, if found; otherwise, the lower bound of the array minus 1.
The one-dimensional Array is searched backward starting at the last element and ending at the first 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.
In the .NET Framework version 2.0, this method uses the Equals and CompareTo methods of the Array to determine whether the Object specified by the value parameter exists. In the earlier versions of the .NET Framework, this determination was made by using the Equals and CompareTo methods of the valueObject itself.
CompareTo methods of the item parameter on the objects in the collection.
