Good Day All! Im working with some XML that has double quotes around the text that i want to work with. For example- “Miami” and I would like it to look like- Miami
This is what i was working with so far (but doesn’t work)
txt = “Miami”;
var dirtyTextArry:Array = txt.split(""");
var cleaned:String = dirtyTextArry[dirtyTextArry.length-1];
whats the best way to accomplish this??
I don’t get what you’re trying to do. Your txt string has no double quotes in it.
sorry, i typed it vaguely… the txt is litterally “Miami” and i want it to be Miami
i think that would be txt = ““Miami””;
var txt:String = txt = "\"Miami\"";
trace(txt.substring(1, txt.length - 1));
you were on the right path with splitting it. now you just have to join it…
txt = "\"Miami\"";
txt = txt.split("\"").join("");
doh!! many thanks TheCanadian and jakattak… I have 2 books, but couldn’t find it in either. have a great weekend all!
