I have a string variable and a textfield component, I want to compare the contents of the string to the textfield.text value and check for equality but I want to ignorecase, so providing the letters are the same I don't care about the case.

if mystring = textfield.text then
 do something;

does anyone know the correct syntax to ignore the case
