Searching text in ASP.net

P: n/a
I use a the function Instr() in VB6 to search for a search-string in String
var. It returns the position of the found search-string.

Is there such a funtion in ASP.net?

Hi,

You could try this:

Dim findIt as String = "The String"
Dim startPosition as Integer
Dim position as integer = findIt.IndexOf("String you are looking in",
startPosition)

Hope this helps.

Hello jty202,

string s = "Foo";
int pos = s.IndexOf("o");

Its a function of the string object which is part of the .NET framework,
not just ASP.NET.

jty,

As far as I know is the Instr in VB6 the same as in VBNet
(You can use it as well in C# when you set a reference to the
Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace)

I hope this helps?
