Look for a string that contains a particular string.

Hi ksfok;

Try it like this:

' Modify the connection string to meet your needs
Dim cnn As New SqlConnection("Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=YourDB;Integrated Security=SSPI")
Dim cmd As SqlCommand = cnn.CreateCommand()
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM customers WHERE cust_id like '%" & Textbox1.Text.ToString.Trim & "'"
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
' Other code to use it goes here.

Use IndexOf method of the string...

textbox1.Text.IndexOf(CustID)

IndexOf looks for a string and returns the position of the string. In your case, if it returns 0 or higher, that means the string had a match in it.

There are other methods as well that might be handy... such as SubString, Replace, etc.

C# code:
int foo = 0;
string textToSearch = this.textBox1.Text;
string findThis = this.textBox2.Text.Trim();
foo = textToSearch.IndexOf(findThis);
MessageBox.Show(string.Format("Position: {0}",foo.ToString()));
 
VB Code:
Dim foo As Int32
Dim textToSearch = Me.textBox1.Text.Trim()
Dim findThis = Me.textBox2.Text.Trim()
foo = textToSearch.IndexOf(findThis)
MessageBox.Show(String.Format("Position: {0}", foo.ToString()))

It depends on what version of the .Net Framework you are using.

Dim foo As Boolean
foo = textToSearch.Contains(findThis);

This is not available in .Net 1.1 framework but it is available I think starting with 2.0, and definately 3.5
If you're using .Net 1.1, you'll have to stick with the

if (textToSearch.IndexOf(findThis) > -1)  then
