VB Like *

Hi

Does anyone know how I can use the Like statement in VB.net and C# .net?

I know it works in VB.net but when I turn on option strict, It doest like it.

How would I use this statement in VB.net and C#

If textbox1.text Like "*Week*" Then
….
End if

If(textbox1.text Like “*Week*”)
{}
I am also looking for the wild card *

Thank you,

Use String.IndexOf, for "*something*", String.StartsWith for
"something*" and String.EndsWith for "*something"

HTH,

Sam

The code above compiles with 'Option Strict On'!
If(textbox1.text Like “*Week*”)
{}

There is no 1:1 replacement for 'Like' in the .NET Framework. You may want
to use 'System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.IsMatch' instead, which uses a
different syntax for the pattern.
