Unable to capture the client ID, Client Name, Client country


Once I captured this what should I do next?

Can you tell me how to use string manipulation in this

Use Split String. GIive Input as Get Text Output
Use “:” as the Separator.
Output would be array of string.

Hi @balkishan

Checkout the attached workflow… This might help you to get it sorted…

Use below one:

Client ID: Client.Substring(Client.IndexOf("Client ID: ")+"Client
ID: ".Length).Split(Environment.NewLine.ToCharArray)(0)

And same way try for other Two also.


@balkishan I have attached a work flow please go through it and let me know Main.xaml (8.1 KB)

@MahalingPatil : As I went through your workflow here you didn’t declare any out parameter bro

I have created variables,you could have create arguments and assign values to arguments.

You must have variables, Clientinfo which type is a GenericValue and idtoremainstr which type is a string array, three arguments out_ClientID, out_ClientName and out_ClientCountry then Use an Assign Activity

assign idtoremainstr = clientinfo.Split(Environment.NewLine.ToArray, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)

out_ClientID = idtoremainingstr(0).Split(":“c)(1).Substring(1)
out_ClientName = idtoremainingstr(1).Split(”:“c)(1).Substring(1)
out_ClientCourtry = idtoremainingstr(2).Split(”:"c)(1).Substring(1)
To see if it’s doing what you expect it to do you can print it using Write Line activity and put the below on Text

Thanks for your efforts bro.
BTW you already declared a clientdetails var type generic in the workflow. Can you tell me why do we need to declare idtoremainstr ?

If you look we are using idtoremainstr variable which is an array to split the values in the Get text.

Clientinfo is the Value in the Get Text property


Simple words the idtoremainstr stores the value from our Get Text activity them split them using the New Line

Hope this will be helpful

Hey thanks for this @lakshman . It was very useful. Do you think you could take me through the lines and explain what is going on? I get that its finding client ID and the length of the word and grabbing that. But that is all I understand. Is the client ID portion a selectors thing? Or would it work on any website with that kind of data? --> IE if it said “customer ID” would it still work?

Yes it will work. In this case, you have to replace Client ID with customer ID

Thanks for getting back to me! Can you please explain this portion of the code?


I know you can change the (0) portion to 1, 2, 3, etc but I don’t fully understand it


You are the man


out_ClientID = ClientInfoDetails.Split(Environment.NewLine.ToArray, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)(0).Split(":"c)(1).Trim

out_ClientName = ClientInfoDetails.Split(Environment.NewLine.ToArray, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)(1).Split(":"c)(1).Trim

out_ClientCountry = ClientInfoDetails.Split(Environment.NewLine.ToArray, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)(2).Split(":"c)(1).Trim


ClientInfo is variable of GetValue Activity

ClientId=ClientInfo.Substring(ClientInfo.IndexOf("Client ID: ")+"Client ID: ".Length).Split(Environment.NewLine.ToCharArray)(0)

ClientName=ClientInfo.Substring(ClientInfo.IndexOf("Client Name: ")+"Client Name: ".Length).Split(Environment.NewLine.ToCharArray)(0)

ClientCountry=ClientInfo.Substring(ClientInfo.IndexOf("Client Country: ")+"Client Country: ".Length).Split(Environment.NewLine.ToCharArray)(0)

use write line activity to cross check
ClientID + “-” + ClientName + “-” + ClientCountry
