  • Check if String Contains

    Hi All

    My code at the moment contains

    Code:
    Dim readout As String = stream.ReadToEnd
    lbloverall.Text = readout
    I want it to be like this however

    Code:
    Dim readout As String = stream.ReadToEnd
    
    <<code to check if string contains "available">>
    <<code to check if string contains "regthroughus">>
    <<code to check if string contains "regthroughothers">>
    
    <<IF String does contain "available THEN>>
    lbloverall.Text = "available"
    
    and so on
    and so on.....
    My question is how do I check the string (readout) and see if those words are in there to compile the if statements.

    Thanks

    Hey MISCHU,

    It's String.Contains(...). Here is a link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...x1sa.aspx#Y399.

    p.s. This one you definitely could have Google'd

      Make search on string

      You could iterate trough the string's array and check your condition:


      Code:
      Foreach str as string in readout.Split("separator")
      {
      
      if(str.contains("available") || str.contains("available") || str.contains("available") 
      // Sequence
      )
      
      }
      if Contains doesn't fit your need try equals.
      Don't forget to mark solution providing post as "Answered".
      It helps others to find correct solutions!

        Regex might be a good coding exercise if everything else fails. Use Contains for faster task completion though.

          try string.contains();

            Hi,

            Take input in array and iterate through each one by one and check for the string in current item of current iteration. Use contains() method.

              Yes, just use string.Contains and then you can specify if to ignore case

                Hello,

                The method for this is
                If (string.contiains("")
                {
                }
                else
                {
                }

                Thanks,
