Remarks

The one-dimensional Array is searched backward starting at the last element and ending at the first element.

The elements are compared to the specified value using the Object.Equals method. If the element type is a nonintrinsic (user-defined) type, the Equals implementation of that type is used.

Since most arrays will have a lower bound of zero, this method would generally return –1 when value is not found. In the rare case that the lower bound of the array is equal to Int32.MinValue and value is not found, this method returns Int32.MaxValue, which is System.Int32.MinValue - 1.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is the Length of array.

In the .NET Framework version 2.0, this method uses the Equals and CompareTo methods of the Array to determine whether the Object specified by the value parameter exists. In the earlier versions of the .NET Framework, this determination was made by using the Equals and CompareTo methods of the valueObject itself.

CompareTo methods of the item parameter on the objects in the collection.

public:
 static int LastIndexOf(Array ^ array, System::Object ^ value, int startIndex, int count);
public static int LastIndexOf (Array array, object value, int startIndex, int count);
static member LastIndexOf : Array * obj * int * int -> int
Parameters
array
Array Array Array Array

The one-dimensional Array to search.

value
Object Object Object Object

The object to locate in array.

startIndex
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The starting index of the backward search.

count
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The number of elements in the section to search.

Returns

The index of the last occurrence of value within the range of elements in array that contains the number of elements specified in count and ends at startIndex, if found; otherwise, the lower bound of the array minus 1.

Exceptions

startIndex is outside the range of valid indexes for array.

-or-

count is less than zero.

-or-

startIndex and count do not specify a valid section in array.

Examples

The following code example shows how to determine the index of the last occurrence of a specified element in an array. Note that the LastIndexOf method is a backward search; therefore, count must be less than or equal to (startIndex minus the lower bound of the array plus 1).

Remarks

The one-dimensional Array is searched backward starting at startIndex and ending at startIndex minus count plus 1, if count is greater than 0.

The elements are compared to the specified value using the Object.Equals method. If the element type is a nonintrinsic (user-defined) type, theEquals implementation of that type is used.

Since most arrays will have a lower bound of zero, this method would generally return –1 when value is not found. In the rare case that the lower bound of the array is equal to Int32.MinValue and value is not found, this method returns Int32.MaxValue, which is System.Int32.MinValue - 1.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is count.

In the .NET Framework version 2.0, this method uses the Equals and CompareTo methods of the Array to determine whether the Object specified by the value parameter exists. In the earlier versions of the .NET Framework, this determination was made by using the Equals and CompareTo methods of the valueObject itself.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example demonstrates all three generic overloads of the LastIndexOf method. An array of strings is created, with one entry that appears twice, at index location 0 and index location 5. The LastIndexOf<T>(T[], T) method overload searches the entire array from the end, and finds the second occurrence of the string. The LastIndexOf<T>(T[], T, Int32) method overload is used to search the array backward beginning with index location 3 and continuing to the beginning of the array, and finds the first occurrence of the string. Finally, the LastIndexOf<T>(T[], T, Int32, Int32) method overload is used to search a range of four entries, beginning at index location 4 and extending backward (that is, it searches the items at locations 4, 3, 2, and 1); this search returns –1 because there are no instances of the search string in that range.

The following code example demonstrates all three generic overloads of the LastIndexOf method. An array of strings is created, with one entry that appears twice, at index location 0 and index location 5. The LastIndexOf<T>(T[], T) method overload searches the entire array from the end, and finds the second occurrence of the string. The LastIndexOf<T>(T[], T, Int32) method overload is used to search the array backward beginning with index location 3 and continuing to the beginning of the array, and finds the first occurrence of the string. Finally, the LastIndexOf<T>(T[], T, Int32, Int32) method overload is used to search a range of four entries, beginning at index location 4 and extending backward (that is, it searches the items at locations 4, 3, 2, and 1); this search returns –1 because there are no instances of the search string in that range.

Remarks

The Array is searched backward starting at startIndex and ending at startIndex minus count plus 1, if count is greater than 0.

The elements are compared to the specified value using the Object.Equals method. If the element type is a nonintrinsic (user-defined) type, the Equals implementation of that type is used.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is count.
