Is it possible to use wildcards in string?

i have string input = “OH–onsite”
where OH is fixed
“–onsite” willl vary
can i use wildcard here?


you could use the LIKE operator with wildcards:
SampleBoolean = SampleString LIKE "OH*"

or check with the String.StartsWith method:
SampleBoolean = SampleString.StartsWith("OH")

Your requirement is kind of unclear though. Does this help?

If you are passing this string to a selector then wildcard will work

Or if you are using it in a Regex expression then wildcard will work again

If it is passed for another string then it won’t
Instead use a variables like this


That would work for sure
Where we can pass the value we want in that string variable
