What's the equilavent for instr in c# i've already tried indexOf and Contains and neither are working. here's an example:
string sTemp = "http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/C_Sharp/newQuestionWizard.jsp"
if (sTemp.IndexOf("experts-exchange.com") != -1)
{
Response.Write("We found it")
}
string sTemp = "http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/C_Sharp/newQuestionWizard.jsp"
if (sTemp.IndexOf("experts-exchange.com") != -1)
{
Response.Write("We found it")
}

that code actually should do it.
so, you might be "overlooking" something stupid like case sensitivity, or the like...

still not working tried:


string sTemp = "http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/C_Sharp/newQuestionWizard.jsp";
string sFind = "experts-exchange.com";
sTemp = sTemp.ToUpper();
sFind = sFine.ToUpper();
if (sTemp.Contains(sFind))
{
Response.Write("We found it");
}

you have one slight misspelling in sFine.ToUpper();

should be

sFind.ToUpper();

and this code works for me in winforms with a message box instead of response.write
