Here are few detailed articles on that :slight_smile:


Here is the solution. Put the string in a variable


var= “abc,def,ghi,jkl,mno,pqr,”
FinalVar= str1.TrimEnd(","c) ( use assign activity)

Now the final will contain only “abc,def,ghi,jkl,mno,pqr”


Can anyone help me …
I have a string as “apple, mango, banana, peach”
But I want output as [“apple”, “mango”, “banana”, “peach”]
Thanks for advance


please see this I think it will help you

Your given string
Fruits=“apple, mango, banana, peach”

Split this string by (,)

Split=split(","c) (Split variable should be in one dimension array)

assign in a variable.
Fruit= “[”+"’"+Split(0).ToString+"’"+","+"’"+Split(1).ToString+"’"+","+"’"+Split(2).ToString+","+"’"+Split(3).ToString+"’"+"]"

and remove the extra content (+) by fruit.remove("+"","")

your result will be
[“apple”, “mango”, “banana”, “peach”]

if we have more items in strings that time how to convert into array of strings

You could achieve this in 4 assign statements:
1/ You have a text
2/ Convert your text to Array(of string) using split method
3/ Quote each element using lambda expression
4/ Build final output sting using join method

strInput = “apple, mango, banana, peach”
stringArray = strInput.Split({","c})
stringArray = stringArray.Select(function(x) """" + x.Trim + """").ToArray
strOutput = "[" + string.Join(",",strArray) + "]"

Sure you can do tht with the parallel activity.

Just drag different sequences or flow charts intho the prallel activity and they will be executed at the same time.
