If I have a string that contains "ABC" and I want to compare it against an array and find the item that contains "ABC", how would I do that?  The array item could have other different characters in it, so it could look like "123ABC456".   I need to search the array using wildcards (*ABC*).

You can loop through each string in an array
Use Contains() method of string, this will return true if first string contains second string in it

dim bContains as boolean
Dim str As String = "hello"
bContains = str.Contains("hell")
