Definition

Returns the index of the first occurrence of the item with the specified key.

public:
 virtual int IndexOfKey(System::String ^ key);
public virtual int IndexOfKey (string key);
abstract member IndexOfKey : string -> int
override this.IndexOfKey : string -> int
Public Overridable Function IndexOfKey (key As String) As Integer

Parameters

key
String

The name of the item to find in the collection.

Returns

Int32

The zero-based index of the first item with the specified key.

Remarks

The Name property corresponds to the key for a ListViewItem in the ListView.SelectedListViewItemCollection.

The key comparison is not case-sensitive. If the key parameter is null or an empty string, IndexOfKey returns -1.

If IndexOfKey is called successively, the last returned index will be checked for a key match first, and if there is no match, the search starts at the beginning of the collection.
