    string problem

    is there function that test strings for example:

    string a = "this is a test";
    string b= "test";
    so the function test if b is partially contained in a or exactly the same as a.

    I've tried

    String MyString = "Hello World!";
    String OtherString = "Hello!";
    int MyInt = MyString.CompareTo(OtherString);
    Console.WriteLine( MyInt );
    but it returns 1

    if I set OtherString = "Hello My World!";
    it returns 1 too.

    any suggestions?
    thank you

    Try IndexOf instead of Compare.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
