Issue with _StringInsert

Recommended Posts


I need to insert a quote at the end of a string so I thought I could use _StringInsert with a negative value for last position but doesn't seem to work. I suppose I could use stringlen to get the length of each string and insert it that way.  Output is:

setup channel1 input "V:MediaTVAbott-CostelloMoviesAbbott & Costello -- Meet Frankenstein (1948).div"x

$sInsertString = 'setup channel' & $channel & ' input "' & $dir & '\'
$sInsertString2 = '"'

   Local $aArray = _FileListToArrayRec($dir, "*.avi;*.mkv;*.mp4;*.divx||*.*", 13, 1, 1, 1)
    ConsoleWrite("Error: " & @error & " - " & " Extended: " & @extended & @CRLF)
    _ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Sorted tree")

;extract artist from first index and compare with previous value to see if it changes and update channel
    local $sString[2]
    $iPosition = StringInStr($aArray[2], "\")
    $sString[0] = StringLeft($aArray[2], $iPosition -1) ; Retrieve 5 characters from the left of the string.
    $sString[1] = StringLeft($aArray[2], $iPosition -1)
    ;MsgBox(0, "", "string: " & $sString[0])

 For $i = 2 To $aArray[0] +1
    $iPosition = StringInStr($aArray[$i], "\")
    $sString[1] = StringLeft($aArray[$i], $iPosition -1) ; Retrieve 5 characters from the left of the string.
    If $sString[0] <> $sString[1] Then
        ;MsgBox(0, "", "change found string: " & $sString[1])
        $sString[0] = $sString[1]
        $channel = $channel +1
        ;$sInsertString = 'setup channel' & $channel & ' input "v:\Media\Music-MP3\Music-Master\'
        $sInsertString = 'setup channel' & $channel & ' input "' & $dir & '\'
        ;_ArrayInsert($aArray[$i], $i, "new channel" & $channel & " broadcast enabled loop")
    $aArray[$i] = _StringInsert ( $aArray[$i], $sInsertString, 0)  ;left side so we are inserting  at the beginning of line
    $aArray[$i] = _StringInsert ( $aArray[$i], $sInsertString2, -1) ;right side insert a quote at end
    ;$aArray[$i] = StringTrimRight($aArray[$i], 1) ;
_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Sorted tree")

My bad..  I should have just did this: $aArray[$i] = $aArray[$i] & $sInsertString2

works now

It doesn't exist probably because you can just


Welp you got it :P I gave you the short-handed version of what you put.

“Hello, ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

Good to see you're adopting new function charon.
