Find a single item by selector

This is the same as WireArray::find() except that it returns a single item rather than a new WireArray of items.


// Get an item with name "foo-bar"
$item = $items->findOne("name=foo-bar");
if($item) {
  // item was found
} else {
  // item was not found


$wire = $wireArray->findOne($selector);
