I have a list box on my form and I need to be able to find out the Index of an item on the listbox from it's text.

E.G. I had a listbox like this

Apple
Orange
Banana
Dafuq


I need a way to get the index by using "Orange" or "Apple" so it would return 1 or 0

Is there a way to do this?

The FindString method of ListBox control returns the index of string in the items of the ListBox as shown below:
int orangeIndex = listBox1.FindString("Orange");
int appleIndex = listBox1.FindString("Apple");
