Pinned topic How to count characters in a string?

‏2009-04-17T08:03:10Z |
Hi Guys,

i've got a script that manages some access rights and now i'm facing a problem.
My inputs are pathes like "/ProjectA/Folder1/Folder2/MolduleI" and i want to split them in the path of every single item, it should look like this:
"/ProjectA"
"/ProjectA/Folder1"
"/ProjectA/Folder1/Folder2"
"/ProjectA/Folder1/Folder2/MolduleI"

My first idea was to count the slashes in the string, but i dont know how, can you help me?

Regards,
Manuel

    You could do this by looping through the string and looking for the slashes, but if you are dealing with DOORS paths then the following might be more reliable/efficient:
     

    string sPath = "/AMG/Red/Green/Blue/Black"
     
    print(sPath "\n")
     
    ModName_ m = module(sPath)
     
    Folder f = getParentFolder(m)
     
    while (!null f)
    {
        print(fullName(f) "\n")
     
            f = getParentFolder(f)
    }

    <pre class="javascript dw" data-editor-lang="js" data-pbcklang="javascript" dir="ltr">string sPath = "/AMG/Red/Green/Blue/Black" print(sPath "\n") ModName_ m = module(sPath) Folder f = getParentFolder(m) while (!null f) { print(fullName(f) "\n") f = getParentFolder(f) } </pre>
    Thank you Tony, it works!

    Of course it works ;-)

    Here's how to do with strings:
     

    string sPath = "/AMG/Red/Green/Blue/Black"
     
    print(sPath "\n")
     
    int i = 0
     
    for (i = length(sPath) - 1; i > 0; i--)
    {
        if (sPath[i] == '/')
            {
                    print(sPath[0:i-1] "\n")
            }
    }
