Question Using find in SimpleSortingList

Please Login to Remove!

Hello ,
what should I do to use the find() method on a SimpleSortingList instance?
I have a SimpleSortingList of Stations, which look like this:

public Station {
private String name;
//....something other
public String getName() { return; }

I created a comparator:

private class StationNameComparator implements Comparator {
public int compare(Object o1, Object o2) {
if (o1 == null || o2 == null) {
return 0;
String n1 = ((Station)o1).getName().toLowerCase();
String n2 = ((Station)o2).getName().toLowerCase();
return n1.compareTo(n2);

so the sorting should work:

public void sortStationList() {
stationList.setSortComparator(new StationNameComparator());

But what should I do to get find work? I need to find a Station according to some string in it's name (for example, I give a string "ri" and I get a station with a name "Paris").
According to the BlackBerry rim API the find() method returns:

If an object matching the given key exists in the vector (as determined by the comparator), the index of the matching element in the vector is returned. If a matching object could not be found, then -(insertionPoint + 1) is returned.

But what should I define in the comparator to get this to work with the Station names?

Please help me with this, thanks.
