I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's the syntax of the anonymous lambda. There are no parentheses around the lambda body.

Module Module1

    Sub Main()

        Dim shop(1) As String

        shop(0) = "what"
        shop(1) = "ever"

        Dim result As String = Array.Find(shop, Function(s) s.StartsWith("what"))



    End Sub

End Module

It looks like the x in the lambda expression is of type Object where clearly from the code posted it is a string and should display all the string methods. In Visual Studio try and do a Clean Solution by clicking on Build->Clean Solution and rebuilding the project to see if that clears the error.
