Name Type Description
s String

A String value that is the text to find.


Type Description

An Int32 value that is the found item’s index within this CheckedComboBoxEdit. If no item was found, returns -1.


The FindString method performs a non-case sensitive search throughout the RepositoryItemCheckedComboBoxEdit.Items collection and returns the index of the first item found whose caption starts with the target string. You can use other overloads of this method to specify the item index, starting from which the method should look for the matching item, or the search direction.

If you need an exact match (an item whose caption is equal to the sought string), use the CheckedComboBoxEdit.FindStringExact method instead.
