Function to get a number from a string!?
« on: October 15, 2008, 11:06:08 AM »
Hello friends!!!

I need to count the numbers of letters of a _root.something (exemple: String="something" to get Number=9, or something like that) and with this number I can use it in a If condition.

Thanks for your supply.

Try:

mystring = "something"
X = LEN(mystring)

X should be 9.

You might be able to just do:

X = LEN("something")

Is it case sensitive? Try Len and not LEN? That's the VBA function. Maybe the script function is different. I'll have to check the docs.

I think he meant in Flash and not VB   

This will return the number of your strings length:

Code: [Select]
MyString.length

this will check to see if the digits are 9:

Code: [Select]
if (MyString.length == 9) {
trace("Is 9");
} else {
trace("Is not 9 it is:"+ MyString.length);
}

.....but you can take the code they gave for VB  and run it in flash but you have to do it like this and I dont belive you can split and join in Mach's VB

fscommand("VBMacro" "some VB here")

Oops, didn't see that it was in the Flash section. :)

Thanks Jason
