Arrays to check duplicates in vb.net

Hi,

How to check if array has a string.Three checks on Uppercase,mixed case and lowercase.

 If IsDBNull(SQLdr(StrCol1)) = False Then
                    StrColval1 = SQLdr(StrCol1).ToString
                    StrColval1 = StrColval1.Trim
                    If StrColval1 <> String.Empty Then
                        If Not (Arr1.Contains(StrColval1)) Then
                            If Not Arr1.Contains(StrColval1.ToLower) Then
                                Arr1.Add(StrColval1)
                            End If
                        End If
                        End If
                End If

Any better way of doing this?

yes use the following

loop through your array and just compare once

Dim myString =""
For Each lstString As String In lst
    if(String.Compare(myString, lstString, true))
    'found string

   end if
Next

Correction:

Dim strFind as string = "abc"
Dim str1st As String = "ABCd, abcd, AbCd)
Dim str2nd As String
'
If strFind.Length > 0 Then
    str2nd = str1st.Upper.Replace(strFind.Upper, "")
    MsgBox _
       ((str1st.Length - str2nd.Length) / strFind.Length).ToString & " Occurences Found"
End If
