Searches for an element in a 1D array starting at a specified index. The node stops searching as soon as the element is found.
A 1D array of any type.
The value to search for in the input array.
The representation of element should match the representation of 1D array.
The index of 1D array to start searching for element.
The index of 1D array where element is found.
If the node does not find element, index of element is -1.
You cannot use this node to retrieve the index of a value that is not an element of the array. For example, if you have an array of two elements (0.0 and 1.0), this node does not find the index of the value 0.5, as that value is not an element of the array. Use Threshold 1D Array to find a fractional index.
This node only finds a string if the element you specify matches an array element exactly. For example, if you have an array of two elements (upper limit and lower limit), this node does not find the index of the value limit, because limit does not match an array element exactly. To search a string for any occurrence of a regular expression, such as in the previous example, use Match 1D String Array.
This node uses a linear search to match the element in 1D array. Because the search is linear, you do not need to sort the array before calling this node.
Where This Node Can Run:
Desktop OS: Windows
FPGA: All devices (only within an optimized FPGA VI)
Web Server: Supported in VIs that run in a web application
