Splitting a string and performing actions (if statement?)

Hi all,

I have the following value “1 AND 2 AND 3” but for another item it can be “1 AND 2”. I just want to stress that the amount of “AND” values can differ.

I want to perform certain actions if there is 2 times “AND” in the value.
I am trying with split but I’m not managing.

Hi @indra, thanks for having a look.

However it does not work as I want. The output of write line var_directive2.ToString is empty and should be “2” and in the if statement i wanted “3” as output and it is giving “none”.


You have to split the string with " " value. After this you will have an array with the same positions of AND you have.

Now you have to loop this array for each string of the array, making a counter to count the AND’s

for each String, if String.Contains(“AND”) → counter+1

After that you will know when a String have 1,2,3… AND’s and you will be able to aply your logic

Hope you will understand this. Find this explanation in this .xaml _Test.xaml (10,3 KB)

Kind regards,


Hi @yannip

Try this to get count of AND occurrence


Once you get the count you can split the string according to you
