array.contains()

Returns the position of the first element in the array that matches the item that we are searching for, or 0 if the item is not found.

array.contains( needle=object, substringMatch=boolean )

Returns: Number

Argument Description
needle
object, required

The item that we are looking for in the array

Alias: object, obj, o

substringMatch
boolean, optional

If set to true then if a then a substring match will also return true. This will only work with simple values. Passing true with complex objects will throw an exception.

Examples

fruits = ["apple","orange","BANANA","banana","orange","Banana","Orange"];
writeDump(fruits.contains("banana"));
writeDump(fruits.contains("Orange"));
