I have the below code.
var idx = dictNames2Indexes.FirstOrDefault(x => x.Key.Contains(value)).Value;

if (idx != null)
   ......

Open in new window

I am receiving "The result of the expression is always 'true' since a value of type 'int' is never equal to 'null' of type 'int?'"

Shouldn't above check for nulls?
