Contains a text string.
Appends the second given string to the first. For this operation, and all text operations, numbers can be treated as text. For example, using a join block to join 1 plus 1 and 2 times 3 results in 26 (2 joined with 6).
Joins all given values into one text string.
Returns the length of the given string.
Reports whether the first text string argument is alphabetically less than the second text string. If two strings begin with the same characters, the shorter string is considered smaller. Uppercase characters precede lowercase characters.
Reports whether the text strings are identical, i.e., have the same characters in the same order.
Note that if you are comparing text boxes that contain digits, there is a difference between comparing them numerically using ordinary equality ( = ) versus comparing them as text strings (
text= ). If you create two text boxes, one with the characters
123 and one with the characters
0123, then these will be equal numerically but not equal as text strings. Be careful that, when it comes to comparisons like this, there is a difference between entering the digits using number boxes, versus entering them as text boxes. Suppose you create two number boxes, on with
123 and one with
0123. If you compare those two boxes using
text= you'll get the result that they are equal. The reason is that the digits you enter into a number box get converted to a number; the actual string of digits is not preserved. If you want to take account of the actual string of digits, then use a text box.
Reports whether the first text string argument is alphabetically greater than the second text string. If two strings begin with the same characters, the shorter string is considered smaller. Uppercase characters precede lowercase characters.
Returns a copy of its text string argument with any leading or trailing spaces removed.
Returns a copy of its text string argument converted to uppercase.
Returns a copy of its text string argument converted to lowercase.
Returns the character position where the first character of
piece first appears in
text, or 0 if not present. For example, the location of
havana banana is 4.
Returns true if
piece appears in
text; otherwise, returns false.
split at first
Divides the given text into two pieces using the location of the first occurrence of
at as the dividing point, and returns a two-item list consisting of the piece before the dividing point and the piece after the dividing point. Splitting
apple,banana,cherry,dogfood with a comma as the splitting point returns a list of two items: the first is the text
apple and the second is the text
banana,cherry,dogfood. Notice that the comma after apple doesn't appear in the result, because that is the dividing point.
split at first of any
Divides the given text into a two-item list, using the location of any item in the list at as the dividing point.
text into pieces using
at as the dividing points and produces a list of the results. Splitting
, (comma) returns the list (
one two three four). Splitting
-potato, returns the list (
one two three four).
split at any
Divides the given text into a list, using any of the items in
at as the dividing point, and returns a list of the results. Splitting
at as the two-element list whose first item is a comma and whose second item is
rry returns a list of four items: (
applebe banana che dogfood)
split at spaces
Divides the given text at any occurrence of a space, producing a list of the pieces.
Extracts part of the text starting at
start position and continuing for length characters.
Returns a new text string obtained by replacing all occurrences of the substring with the replacement.
