Need help with stringsplit

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

How to split the following text into separate ones.

word1-word2-word3

So you'd get

$var1 = "Word1"

$var2 = "Word2"

$var3 = "Word3"

I've searched the helpfile for stringsplit, but the helpfile is very limited in explaining how to return the strings using msgboxes.

Thanks!

I think the helpfile is pretty clear in that it returns an Array. :)

$vars = StringSplit("word1-word2-word3", "-") 
For $x = 1 To $vars[0]
    MsgBox(0,"demo",$vars[$x])
Next

Nothing difficult here

$test = StringSplit("word1-word2-word3", "-")
MsgBox(0,"",$test[0])
MsgBox(0,"",$test[1])
MsgBox(0,"",$test[2])
MsgBox(0,"",$test[3])

I'd suggest using an array instead like this:

#include <array.au3>
Local $String = 'word1-word2-word3'
Local $aArray = StringSplit ( $String, '-' )
_ArrayDisplay ( $aArray )

Then reference the array elements you need.
