Range Question

var sentence = "All boys do a really good job cleaning."

use the range() method to locate the word "do" in the sentence and assign the range to a variable.

I did this from my phone so it's not tested. You may need an if let.

let range = sentence.range(of: "do")

wow, it is more simple than I imagine. thanks

Did it work?

put this in xcode also showed me the same result in the pane but not in the console I see that both ways give the same results, thinking logically for future construts having the variable [range] can be useful in how many ways?

var sentence = "All boys do a really good cleaning"

sentence.range(of: "do")

yes it worked also, really apologize I was in a rush and typed with my caps lock on. embarrassed.

Definitely is useful with search results for a table.
