Hello Guys,

We have CString.Find and CString.CompareNoCase to find the substring and Ignoring the case .

Convert both string and substring using MakeUpper or MakeLower  and use Find with converted strings.

Thought the same

But Don't want to loose the Actual String.

Only thing I can do is have a copy of original string and do the rest

Anyways thanks for your help

If you want to find only the position of such a case insensitive substring, you can: lower/upper the string and then find your substring

CString strToFind,strText;
