Deprecated - Provided for compatibility with earlier versions only - Use Items.FindCellText instead

The FindString method searches items for a string.

The string described by SearchString is compared to the Cell.Text property of all items and columns involved in the search. The search starts at the item described by ItemIndex and is restricted to the column specified by ColIndex. If an item with a matching Cell.Text property is found, its zero-based index is returned, otherwise -1 is returned.

Only one column can be searched at a time.

The comparison of SearchString and the Cell.Text property is not case sensitive. If the Cell.Text property starts with the string in SearchString, it is considered a match. To find an exact match for SearchString use the Items.FindCellTextExact method.
