Contains takes a string and returns a bool if it is found in the search string.

IndexOfAny takes an array of characters to search for and returns the index position of the first one, if any, found.

ok....is there a way to make contains look for a word no matter what the case maybe be.

I noticed that is i do a .contains("TT")
if only will look for TT, but what if it is Tt or TT....

Right now I am doing like 3 statement to achieve it to find it. Is that correct?

Use ToLower() on the string to convert it to lowercase for the comparison:
 
            string s1 = "This is TT";
            MessageBox.Show(s1.ToLower().Contains("tt").ToString());
