# String manipulation

Hey guys,

I have a string which is "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10"

How do I make the string into "1 2,3 4,5 6,7 8,9 10" ?

Meaning to say between the first 2, there will be a space in between followed by a "," after that space between 3 and 4 and then a ","

How do I achieve that?

Hi bryant,

You can use the below function to manipulate the String.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Script>
<![CDATA[

private function init() : void
{
var strNumbers:String = "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10";
var strSplitArray:Array = strNumbers.split(",");
var strModified:String = "";

var counter:int=1;
for(var i:int=0;i<strSplitArray.length;i++)
{
if(counter == 1)
{
strModified += strSplitArray[i] + " ";
}
else if(counter == 2)
{
strModified += strSplitArray[i] + ",";
counter = 0;
}
else
{
counter = 0;
}
counter++;
}
strModified = strModified.substring(0, strModified.length-1);
}

]]>
</mx:Script>
</mx:Application>

Thanks,

Hi there,

Can I check with you one more thing? How do I make it into "2.10 1.10, 4.10 3.10, 6.10 5.10, 8.10 7.10, 10.10 9.10" from "1.10,2.10,3.10,4.10,5.10,6.10,7.10,8.10,9.10,10.10" ??

I tried reversing but I will get things like this "01.2 01.1, 01.4 01.3... " something like that, which means it has reversed everything in it.

I just want to reverse the position, thats all.

Can help out all this?

Hi Bryant,

You can use this function instead..

private function init() : void
{
var strNumbers:String = "1.10,2.10,3.10,4.10,5.10,6.10,7.10,8.10,9.10,10.10";

var strSplitArray:Array = strNumbers.split(",");
var strModified:String = "";

var counter:int=1;
for(var i:int=0;i<strSplitArray.length;i++)
{
if(counter == 1)
{
++i;
strModified += strSplitArray[i] + " ";
i-=2;
}
else
{
strModified += strSplitArray[i] + ",";
counter = 0;
i+=1;
}
counter++;
}
strModified = strModified.substring(0, strModified.length-1);
}

Thanks,

Hi there,

Now that if I want to change it from  "1.10,2.10,3.10,4.10,5.10,6.10,7.10,8.10,9.10,10.10" to become "2.10 1.10.10, 4.10 3.10, 6.10 5.10, 8.10 7.10, 10.10 9.10"

How do I make the first entry appear at the last entry again? Meaning to say become like this, "2 1, 4 3, 6 5, 8 7, 10 9, 2 1"

Something like that.

Hi bryant,

Use this function now...

private function init() : void
{
var strNumbers:String = "1.10,2.10,3.10,4.10,5.10,6.10,7.10,8.10,9.10,10.10";
var strSplitArray:Array = strNumbers.split(",");
var strModified:String = "";

var counter:int=1;
for(var i:int=0;i<strSplitArray.length;i++)
{
if(counter == 1)
{
++i;
strModified += strSplitArray[i] + " ";
i-=2;
}
else
{
strModified += strSplitArray[i] + ",";
counter = 0;
i+=1;
}
counter++;
}
strModified += strSplitArray[1] + " " + strSplitArray[0];
}

Thanks,
