TIdHeaderList.IndexOfName Method

Index position in the list for the header with the specified name.

function IndexOfName(
    const AName: string
): Integer; reintroduce;
Header name to locate in the list. 

Integer - Position of the named header in the list, or -1 when not found.

IndexOfName is an Integer function that returns the index position of the header with the name indicated in AName in the header list. IndexOfName work like Borland's TStrings.IndexOfName, but uses the delimiters defined in NameValueSeparator, and respects the case sensitivity flag in the CaseSensitive property. 

IndexOfName ignores header Values when locating the index position. 

IndexOfName can return -1 when the header in Name does not exist in the header list.
