  • How do I check if a certain text string contains another text string?
    Is there an equivalent to the C# String.Contains function?

    Answer

    To know if one text string is contained in another text string use the Text Built-in Function Index.
    The Index Function returns an integer with the zero-base position of a keyword string inside another text string and returns -1 if keyword is not found.

    To get a Boolean Output similar to the C# String.Contains use the following Expression:

        Index(text,keyword) > -1
    

    To make your search case insensitive set the ignoreCase parameter to True:

        Index(text,keyword,ignoreCase:True) > -1
