Replace a part of a string

Hello i have a string thats formulated Row_0
I want to perform a assignment to this string
Where i only change out the 0

Example everytime i go past that string i want to do the following Row_0 = Row_1
then if it goes past that string again ( in a loop or so ) change Row_2 etc

@langsem Do you want to change the value inside the Variable ? i.e the value being Row_0 ?

the value its a string, but i want to make the string dynamic so i can change only the number. like increase the number after “Row_”

@langsem Yes. You can assign dynamic values to it. Create a Counter variable Initialised to 0 or 1.

Then use this when you’re performing the Operation “Row_”+counter.ToString

Then Increment the counter by one , counter = counter + 1

So The First time it will be “Row_0”, when it counter gets incremented and if you Check the value in the Second time it will be “Row_1” and it keeps on increasing until the iteration Stops

hm, I have created a variable for the actual row

so i shall make another variable thats a int that i increase, then use a assign to mix those variables together ?

@langsem I think you’ll need to explain what you are actually trying to do :sweat_smile:

haha okei.

So i have a program where i want a function that goes down the rows until its no more rows ( i know how to perform this, i am using a element exist with a flow decision and a assign ) but the problem its that the selector its not a index with a simple integer, its row its outputed Row_0, Row_1, Row_2 etc. So i would need to make a a variable upon that row and make it a string

@langsem Ok. i Think you can use the logic i have given. Then to use that value in the Selector since you’re using a different variable. Assign the Variable COUNTER_DBS_ROW = counter. ToString before it is being used in the Selector.

the variable COUNTER_DBS_ROW its Row_0
I would need to split tthat string to Row_

Then use another assign where i have a integer that i increase + 1

Then i have another assign where i combine those two ?

@langsem Use it in this way :

COUNTER_DBS_ROW = “Row_”+counter.ToString

hm the element exist still gives me false :S

@langsem Can you Show us how you have implemented the Workflow ?

@langsem Can you Hardcode the value in the Element Exists to Row_0 and Check if it works?

Also I think incrementing the counter should come after the Row Exists Sequence

think i made it work, had to just repair it

haha or maybe not, well the counter to make it go to next row works good. But now my actual task dont work. where i am using a get text function to get the date for later match

@langsem Is the Element Exists Activity Returning true ?


see the row returns true, then i am using a get text acivity to get the date of the row. but that one failes. i ahve alrdy assigned the row variable to the get text activity

@langsem There are two automation Id attributes present in the Selector, is the Other Automation Id always constant ?
