I have a basic piece of code.

    Sub Main()
        Dim Test As String = "test example"

        Console.WriteLine(Test.IndexOf("example"))
        Console.ReadLine()
    End Sub


The output would be "5" as the position of the start of the specified string is 5. I would still like to use indexof but how can i make it find the word location of the specified string such as it would output "2" as the word location is the 2nd word.

Here's some code to work with. Please remember how to handle "errors" (text not found) yourself:

    Sub Main()
        Dim Test As String = "test example"
        Dim test_arr As String()
        test_arr = Split(Test, " ")


        Console.WriteLine("Index : " & Test.IndexOf("example"))
        Console.WriteLine("Word : " & test_arr.ToList().IndexOf("example") + 1)
        Console.ReadLine()
    End Sub
