# How to find out element position in slice?

The Sort function sorts the data interface in both ascending and descending order. IntSlice attaches the methods of Interface to []int, sorting in increasing order. StringSlice attaches the methods of Interface to []string, sorting in increasing order.

Below is an example to search particular string or integer in string or integer slice vice versa.

### Example

``````package main

import (
"fmt"
"sort"
)

func main() {
sort.Sort(sort.StringSlice(str))
fmt.Println(str)  // sorted

fmt.Println("Length of Slice: ", sort.StringSlice.Len(str))   // 7
fmt.Println("OHIO found in Slice at position: ", sort.StringSlice(str).Search("OHIO"))        //  4
fmt.Println("Ohio found in Slice at position: ", sort.StringSlice(str).Search("Ohio"))        //  4
fmt.Println("ohio found in Slice at position: ", sort.StringSlice(str).Search("ohio"))        //  7

fmt.Println("\n\n")

num := []int{9, 22, 54, 33, -10, 40} // unsorted
sort.Sort(sort.IntSlice(num))
fmt.Println(num)  // sorted

fmt.Println("Length of Slice: ", sort.IntSlice.Len(num))  // 6
fmt.Println("40 found in Slice at position: ", sort.IntSlice(num).Search(40))     //  4
fmt.Println("82 found in Slice at position: ", sort.IntSlice(num).Search(82))     //  6
}``````

### Output

``````[Alaska Indiana Montana Nevada Ohio Texas Washington]
Length of Slice:  7
OHIO found in Slice at position:  4
Ohio found in Slice at position:  4
ohio found in Slice at position:  7

[-10 9 22 33 40 54]
Length of Slice:  6
40 found in Slice at position:  4
82 found in Slice at position:  6``````
