Simple StringSplit issues

Recommended Posts


I am using the StringSplit funtion and I am encounting issues with the result and would like some direction. The funtion is simple, read each line of a file and then split the line by @CRLF - that is a space .... I also tried " ". The funtion looks ok however in Array[1] I get the full line and when I try to output in Array[2] an exception is thrown. Does anyone know what I should use to represent a SPACE other than @CRLF or "".

This is a sample of the text file

TT_Sample 7.3

X_Sample 7.2

TT_Sample 7.8

X_Sample 7.5

This is the Funtion

Dim $ProductArrayList
Dim $ArrayCount = 0
Dim $XAxis = 0
Dim $YAxis = 0

$filecompare = FileOpen("read.txt", 0)
; **********************************************Check if Compare file opened for reading OK
If $filecompare = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open Exclusion File, please verify that file exists.")

While 1     
    $line = FileReadLine($filecompare)
    $ProductArrayList = StringSplit($line, @CRLF, 1)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0,"DevCentral Result equals: ", $ProductArrayList[1])
    MsgBox(0,"DevCentral Result equals: ", $ProductArrayList[2])


The output should be

$ProductArrayList[1]) = TT_Sample

$ProductArrayList[2] = 7.3


Any ideas ?

Look in the help file at the "flag" parameter:

[optional] If flag is 0 (the default), then each character in the delimiter string will mark where to split the string. If flag is 1, then the entire delimiter string is needed to mark the split.

By default each character is a delimiter, so if you use @CRLF & " ", you actually get three delimiters: @CR, @LF, and {SPACE}.

Having said all that, there won't be any @CRLF in the line with your code because $line came from FileReadLine(), so it's just a single line to begin with.
