StringReplace unexpected behavior

Recommended Posts

lte5000

Expected results:

$a = "abc"
$a = StringReplace($a, "a", "")
MsgBox(0, "contents of var $a", $a)
Result of StringReplace() is "abc". I expected "bc".

Bug? Intended behavior? I don't know.

Thanks in advance for checking it out.

Edit: added what I expected.

You forgot to mention why you expect only the first character to be replaced... :P

The StringReplace() starts replacing at position 1 with the lenght of the replace string ..which is zero so nothing will happen...

I expected the first character (position 1) to be replaced with ""... because...well...just because. :)

But after thinking it through, your explanation makes more sense. :P

Thanks.
