Could you give me an example of how the CString :: Find() works on a CString member?? The help included in the VC++ index is not very clear to me. Thanks!

CString str = "abcdefbc" ;

int nIndex = str.Find( "bc" ) ; // find a string
// nIndex will 1 because the first occurrence of string bc in str is at position 1 (the first character in str counts as position 0 )
// similarly
CString str2 = "bc" ;
int nIndex2 = str.Find( str2 ) ;

int nIndex3 = str.Find( 'c' ) ; // find a character
// will find the c at position 2 (meaning nIndex3 becomes 2)

int nIndex4 = str.Find( "xyz" ) ; // not found
int nIndex5 = str.Find( 'n' ) ; // not found
// these return -1 for nIndex4 and nIndex5 meaning the item is not found
