parse tabbed string into array


Recommended Posts

hello. I am trying to parse a tabbed delimited string into an array using stringsplit(). The tabbed string contains:

This is the contents of the clipboard

I want to parse element 4 from the array: 'contents'.

here's what I've got:

#include <array.au3>

$vClipboardData=clipget()

$vElement=stringsplit(vClipboardData, "")

msgbox(0,"my string is:", $vElement[4])

My problem is that I cannot find the "tab" delimiter syntax for the stringsplit function. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

Try this:

$vClipboardData=clipget()
$vElement=stringsplit($vClipboardData, @TAB)
msgbox(0,"my string is:", $vElement[4])

And you don't need #include<array.au3> for this small script.
