StringInStr

Checks if a string contains a given substring.

StringInStr("string", "substring" [, casesense [, occurrence [, start [, count]]]])

Parameters

string The string to evaluate.

substring The substring to search for.

casesense [optional] Flag to indicate if the operations should be case sensitive.

  • 0 = not case sensitive, using the user's locale (default)
  • 1 = case sensitive
  • 2 = not case sensitive, using a basic/faster comparison
occurrence [optional] Which occurrence of the substring to find in the string. Use a negative occurrence to search from the right side. The default value is 1 (finds first occurrence).

start [optional] The starting position of the search.

count [optional] The number of characters to search. This effectively limits the search to a portion of the full string. See remarks.

Return Value

Success: Returns the position of the substring.

Failure: Returns 0 if substring not found.

@Error 0 - Normal operation

1 - Invalid "start" or "occurence" parameter given.
