Trying to split a string into an array of characters, but using a delimiter of nothing '<empty>' does not work. Any help would be appreciated.
Simple variable creation to test it out...
Expression with empty delimiter:
[ "testing" ]
With a delimiter:
[ "", "es", "ing" ]
Thanks in advance, and sorry if it is something simple I missed along the way.
I did a test on my side, and the result of the expression output you provided is what you expected.
I am a bit confused about what kind of data you need to get.
Ok, so you tested my second case, which was as expected.
The case I am trying to solve is with an empty delimiter.
So you would use: Split('testing','')
And you should recieve: ["t","e","s","t","i","n","g"]
I tested it on my side, and relying on the split() function doesn't seem to get the results you expected. Because such a separator seems to have no effect.
You could try other methods. I used variables and expressions on my side to get the results you want, maybe you could refer to.
Have you tried the method I provided?
It seems that using the Split() function as you described does not produce the expected results.
If you need further assistance, please feel free let me know.
I had the same issue. I worked around this limitation as follows:
Define a String variable called Subject (My initial variable was a string that was taken from the subject line in an email.)
Define a second string variable called CommaSubject, set its value to replace each space with a comma i.e. replace(triggerBody()?['Subject'],' ',',') Although it may be better to use a less common character such as ^ for the separator.
You can then split that string using the character you replaced.
