This method finds a field in the ECLFieldList collection using either text or a position. The position can be either a linear position or a row, column position. If a field contains the text or the position, a pointer to an ECLField object for that field is returned. The returned pointer is to an object in the field list collection. NULL is returned if the field is not found. When searching for text, the search begins at row1 column1 unless you specify a starting position. Also for text, this method will search forward in the list as a default; however, you can specify the direction to search explicitly.

Note: A search for text will be successful even if the text spans multiple fields. The field object returned will be the field where the found text begins.
