String replace not working

Hi all,

 

I am trying to replace '_' underscores from a given string, using the string.replace function,

Sujith,

 

What version of ThingWorx are you on?  I'm in 9.0 and it seems to work for me:

Hi @nmilleson ,

 

I am using the latest build available on the cloud, I guess it is 9.2

In output even I am getting the desired result,

but in log I am not getting it.

Sujith,

 

What happens if you try and run the replace right in the log statement?

 

logger.warn(Unique.replace(/_/g,''));

Hi @nmilleson ,

 

I did this:

and in the logs I got this:

I am also sending the variable UniqueID to another service, in the other service also the value contains '_':

Sujith,

 

    I have tried this and working fine. Could you please try like :arraydata[2].replace('_' , '')

 

Hi @VP_10348089 ,

Hi all,

 

Anyone has a solution for this?

Or do I raise a Case on eSupport?

 

Thanks,

Hello,

you can replace another part of the string and see how it reacts?

like :arraydata[2].replace('IOTMH' , 'removed'));

 

Are you using the correct declaration of var/let? (even if this should have no affect on the logger)

 

If you can always remove the last character of the string, try "slice".

like :arraydata[2].slice(0, -1)

 

Best regards

Marc

What Marc wrote below is a very good solution.

There's a very slim chance that the code you shown us is not really the code that executed (by mistake?)

Are you 100% sure that the logger statement you see is generated by the code you've shown to us?

Otherwise, can you please send me the whole content of your service please in a PM?

This is clearly a topic for a Support Case, but I'm really curious to see the cause of this issue, as it should not happen.

Also write back the full version of ThingWorx you're using: 9.2.?

hi SB_9732186

 

below code worked fine on TW 9.3.2. Can you try on your TW instance?

---------------------------------------------------

var test = 'IOTMH22G022420_';
var result = test.replace('_','');
logger.warn("replace test : " + test.replace('_',''));
