Same word, 2 different StringLen results

3 posts in this topic

Ok, I've been working on this for a while now, and I do not understand why this is happening.

You have a ini file ($inifile = @ScriptDir & "/temp/usage.ini") The ini is named with the following information:

[John Smith]
1=User1

Now when you run this script, select the name from the combo. If you have the INI setup right, the 3 input fields will populate with the data from the ini.

Click the OK button.

I made a msgbox to show the problem. The stringsplit will show the stringlen being 4, while $InputGUI_ControlREAD_2 will show it being 5. When you do a count, it should be 4. What am I missing here?

Looks llike you're calling your _Cleanup function with the $space parameter set to True.

According to your _Cleanup()

If $Space Then $iName &= " "

So the String length is being increased there!
