What's wrong with this?

Recommended Posts

So, I made a function which has to break a line when it encounters a special character.

Func breakLine($string_to_break, $character_to_break)
    Local $stb=StringSplit($string_to_break, $character_to_break)
    Return $stb[1]&@CRLF&$stb[2]
EndFunc

And I am using it to modify a mask.

$desctable_mask="ACCID#@ACCNAME@#@@"
Local $sInfo[3]
$sInfo[0]="ID"
$sInfo[1]="DB"
$sInfo[2]="SC"
$patch=breakLine(StringReplace(StringReplace($desctable_mask, "ACCID", $sInfo[0]), "ACCNAME", $sInfo[1]), "@")

It actually breaks the line, however, this is what it should display on the output:

ID#
SC
#

And this is what it's actually displaying.

ID#
SC

How is that so?

What I am trying to do:

Break the line when a @ occurs

Replace "ACCID" with $sInfo[0]

Replace "ACCNAME" with $sInfo[1]

Display result in the output.

And no, ACCID and ACCNAME aren't "Account ID" and "Account Name", they're actually "Accessory ID" and "Accesory Name".

Thanks in advance ;)

Try this, your second "#" is in another element of the array. So you have to send that back as well in the Return statement.

$desctable_mask = "[email="ACCID#@ACCNAME"]ACCID#@ACCNAME[/email]@#@@"
Local $sInfo[3]
$sInfo[0] = "ID"
$sInfo[1] = "DB"
$sInfo[2] = "SC"
$patch = breakLine(StringReplace(StringReplace($desctable_mask, "ACCID", $sInfo[0]), "ACCNAME", $sInfo[2]), "@")
Func breakLine($string_to_break, $character_to_break)
    Local $stb = StringSplit($string_to_break, $character_to_break)
    Return $stb[1] & @CRLF & $stb[2] & @CRLF & $stb[3] ; I'm not sure if you need another @CRLF at the end of the Return line as well
EndFunc   ;==>breakLine

Oh yeah, thanks ! That worked ;)

By the way, would this automatically return all the items in the array?

Func breakLine($string_to_break, $character_to_break)
    Local $stb = StringSplit($string_to_break, $character_to_break)
    Local $mrg = ""
    For $i=1 To $stb[0] Step 1
        $mrg=$stb[$i]&@CRLF
    Next
    Return $mrg;$stb[1] & @CRLF & $stb[2] & @CRLF & $stb[3]
EndFunc   ;==>breakLine

Woops

instead of

$mrg=$stb[$i]&@CRLF

I changed that line to

$mrg=$mrg&$stb[$i]&@CRLF

Then I tested it, but it a few more returns.

ID#
SC
#
<return here>
<return here>

You're going to get the extra blank lines because the test string ends in "@@" and the string split will split there, which creates 2 empty elements.
