Breaking a string apart

I have a string 100C and I want to break up this string into it's two parts so that I get 100 C. What would be the best way to go about that?

Re: Breaking a string apart

In JavaScript, strings are, essentially, arrays of individual characters.  So, you could write a JavaScript routine to go through each character in the string to grab everything up to the C, place those in one string... append a space... and then append the C.

 

Alternatively, you could use the aqString.Find method to find the location of the C, use aqString.SubString to get everything up to but not including the C and put it in one variable, append a space, and then append the C.

 

Multiple ways... but it's going to take code of string manipulation to do so.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
