Hi I have an ArrayList in VisiaulBasic.net 2012

 Private lstHoverText As New ArrayList


lstHoverText .Add("Red")
lstHoverText .Add("Blue")
lstHoverText .Add("Green")
lstHoverText .Add("Yellow")

I need to know "Green" is position 3 (zero based)

>>lstHoverText .Add("Red")
lstHoverText .Add("Blue")
lstHoverText .Add("Green")
lstHoverText .Add("Yellow")

Green is position 2 using zero based maths in that example.  If you really want the number 3 then just add one to the method given to you already.  Dim x As Integer = lstHoverText.IndexOf("Green") + 1
