Is there a method to find the last occurrence of a character in a string?
edit: duh… never mind. Can’t read.
If I remember correctly, Kem’s M_String module has an InStrReverse function.
Kem will give you the RegEx for it, but if you want to go oldschool quick and dirty, CountFields/NthField will do it.
dim c as string = theCharacter dim s as string = theStringToSearch dim position as integer position = len(s) - len(NthField(s, c, CountFields(s, c))) - 1
You may need to adjust by 1 to get the absolute correct value. (Ie., not tested)
See this thread:
position = len(s) - len(NthField(s, c, CountFields(s, c)))
The pattern would be something like…
…where the character in question is “a”. Just remember that RegEx gives you byte position, not character position.
Thanks all! Hi Kem long time no see.
