Hi. I got problems with this:

$test = GUICtrlRead($drag1)

Local $days = StringSplit($test, "/")
MsgBox(4096, "", $days[5])

my gui is drag and drop. So I drag a file into a box, and then I want to stringsplit it, so the file is in ex: c:\data\picture.jpg

then I want to get only the name : picture.jpg, but with my above code i'm getting errors (it's only a little part of my code)

What error are you getting? If it is an "array subscript exceeded dimension range etc..." error then there are 2 obvious causes: ;)

- 1. You are splitting on "/" when paths usually contain "" - so check that you actually get an array with IsArray.

- 2. The path that you are dropping does not have enough "" to get to element [5] of the array - so use the count in the [0] element to read the final element:

MsgBox(4096, "", $days[$days[0]])

But as above also check you have an array first. ;)
