Is combobox.findstring(stringToFind)

case sensitive?

If it is, is there any way to turn case sensitivity off?

    From MSDN:
    ComboBox.FindString Method (String, Int32)
    "Finds the first item after the given index which starts with the given string. The search is not case sensitive."

    [Visual Basic] Overloads Public Function FindString(String) As Integer
    "The search performed by this method is not case-sensitive."
