    The System.String to search for.
    The System.Int32 value to which column index search in.

    Return Value

    A MatchedComboItemCollection containing the matched items.
    The search performed by this method is not case-sensitive. The s parameter is a substring to compare against the text associated with the items in the combo box list. The search performs a partial match starting from the beginning of the text, and returning the first item in the column located by findTargetColumnIndex of the list that matches the specified substring. You can then perform tasks, such as removing the item that contains the search text using the ListItemCollection.Remove method or changing the item's text. Once you have found the specified text, if you want to search for other instances of the text in the GcComboBox, you must use the version of the FindString(String,Int32,Int32) method that provides a parameter for specifying a starting index within the GcComboBox. If you want to perform a search for an exact word match instead of a partial match, use the FindStringExact(String,Int32) method.
