You enter the word "pen" then you enter the letter "p" and the output is 3 means location of "n"? where did the "n" come into it?

Also, indexers start at 0, so n is actually at index 2 :)

i also have same opinion like DavidKiryazi ;)

Try this:

string _text =;
int _location = text.IndexOf(@"n");

_location will contain the location of 'n'.

i also have same opinion like John Simmons / outlaw programmer ;)
string str = TextBox1.Text;
int position = str.IndexOf(TextBox2.Text)+1;
Label1.Text = position.ToString();

use it u will get the result i used +1 as indexing starts from 0.
