how to get array/list row/column count when split functions returns string?
Not quite sure what you are asking. The split function in the expression language gives you back a dataset with one column and rows for every item you split on. So if your string is:
and you split on the semi-colon:
split("Hello;SomethingElse;56.7", ";")you would get a dataset with one column and three rows. You can find out how many rows by doing the following:
len(split("Hello;SomethingElse;56.7", ";"))You can grab one value out of the dataset like this:
split("Hello;SomethingElse;56.7", ";")[1,0]That gets the value out of row 1 and column 0 which would be “SomethingElse”.
If you are using the split function in scripting here is an example:
str = "Hello;SomethingElse;56.7"
values = str.split(";")
print len(values) # number of items
print values # gives you back "Something Else"
thanks a lot for the info
