	aString As NSString, _
	mask As NSStringCompareOptions, _
	searchRange As NSRange, _
	locale As NSLocale _
) As NSRange
virtual NSRange RangeOfStringOptionsRangeLocale(
	NSString^ aString, 
	NSStringCompareOptions mask, 
	NSRange searchRange, 
	NSLocale^ locale
aString (NSString)
The string for which to search. This value must not be nil.
mask (NSStringCompareOptions)
A mask specifying search options. The following options may be specified by combining them with the C bitwise OR operator: NSCaseInsensitiveSearch, NSLiteralSearch, NSBackwardsSearch, and NSAnchoredSearch. See String Programming Guide for details on these options.
searchRange (NSRange)
locale (NSLocale)
The locale to use when comparing the receiver with aString. If this value is nil, uses the current locale.
Return Value
An NSRange structure giving the location and length in the receiver of aString within aRange in the receiver, modulo the options in mask. The range returned is relative to the start of the string, not to the passed-in range. Returns {NSNotFound, 0} if aString is not found or is empty (@"").
