Getting a substring position in a CString Var.?

How do I get the start position of a sub string within
a CString object???
I have tried to use ->
CString mText("abcdefghi");
int mInitPos = mText.Find("gh");
// All that this returns is a '1' not the start position in
the string..Is their something I am doing wrong..
please give an example..

Hi,
What you have done is correct. It is supposed to return the correct index of the substring. but I don't know why its returning 1.
I have written the sample code to check( same as above ), It returns 6. Which means, your string(mText) is getting changed somewhere or your substring is wrong.
My Suggestions :
Please check the value of mText and substring.

If this didn't work, then try also

CString mText(_T("abcdefghi"));

and then call the above code

int position=mText.Find(_T("gh"));

Maybe this will work.

You can always use the strstr() C function.
