_StringBetween when delimiters are "

Recommended Posts

rossnixon

I'm wanting to pull out some text using _StringBetween when the delimiters each side of the desired result are " characters.
I've tried a few variations without success,
e.g. _StringBetween($text, '"', '"')
Is there some type of ASCII code I can use instead, perhaps?

Thanks!

Read help file again:
 

_ArrayDisplay(_StringBetween('abc"def" ijk', '"', '"'))

Thanks jchd. My error was treating the result as a normal variable instead of an array, so it showed as blank.

Exactly that.

Now my problem is pulling the first element of the array into a string variable. Looks complicated!
The example in help looks a bit like:
_ArrayToString($fileArray, " :: ", 0, 0, @CRLF,0, 0)
or
_ArrayToString($fileArray, "", 0, 0)
but they don't work.

​if you want the first element of your array to be converted to a string then just do something like this.

$sString = String($fileArray[0])

_ArrayToString is useful for concatenating multiple array elements into a single string variable.

Thanks Kidney, I hadn't spotted the String() function.
Tested and works perfectly!  :-)
