Finds the first occurrence a substring within a String object.
"String Literal".indexOf(substring, startindex)
The indexOf method syntax has these arguments:
Part Description substring The substring to search for within the String object. startindex An optional integer value specifying the index to begin searching within the String object. If omitted, searching begins at the beginning of the string.
The indexOf method returns an integer value indicating the beginning of the substring within the String object. If the substring is not found, a -1 is returned. Note that -1 is NOT false (0 is) so if (text.indexOf(" ")) is only true if the space is the first character in the string.
If startindex is negative, startindex is treated as zero. If it is larger than the greatest character position index, it is treated as the largest possible index.
Searching is performed from left to right. Otherwise, this method is identical to lastIndexOf.
