Here's one for you POM

Since you seem to be the go to person,:slight_smile: Here is what I want to do:

I have a list view that is set up so I can enter in Org #'s like 5091, 5067, 5878 and so on. I want the users to be able to put in as many as they want. I need to extract these orgs from the list view and place them in a variable that I can display later in the movie. I can extract them but I get 509150675878 all group together. I would like to be able to insert a comma after every 4th character. I think you need to create a function to format the string. I was not sure on how to do this. Or is there some way I can do it before the extract. Thanks in advance for your help

Here you go:

	var length=this.length;
	var myArray=new Array();
	var i;
	for (i=0;i < length/4;i++){
	return myArray;

// How to use it:
trace (myString.sliceIt());
// returns 1234,5678,9098,7654,3212

Basically, it is done with the slice method. You can check it in the AS dictionnary.

cool code, POM. One question… doesn’t the array return the values separated by commas anyway? I’m not fooling or anything, I really want to know. I think it’s just been a long day and I’m just staring at the screen, not knowing what to write.


Sorry to get back to you so late.

Yes it does, but this wasn’t the point. He wanted to have groups of 4 digits… But anyway, I don’t think the comas are actually “there”: Flash puts them there so that you can see the output.

If you really want to put comas, I think it’s the join method, but I’m not sure.
