parse_string ( string ; pos ; delimiter )

Recommended Posts

Name & Parameters: [color:red][big] parse_string ( string ; pos ; delimiter ) [/big]

Description: This function will return a section of a string determined by the parameters.

string = The string to be read from

pos = The section to read

delimiter = The section definer

For the delimiter, it is recommended to use one character long delimiters, for FM returns unconsistent values. This isn't saying it won't work, just don't count on it.

Sample Input:

parse_string ( "I like to have fun|This is useful|good for script arguments", 3, "|" )

Results:

good for script arguments

Recursive: no

Formula:

GetValue( Substitute ( string ; delimiter ; "¶" ) ; pos ) 

Required Functions:

You can't use CF's on "plain" versions, however is this one not recursive one so you can just define it as an ordinary calc'field via copy and paste!
