GETWORDCOUNT() - utils.stringWordCount()

Counts the words in a string. The VFP2Servoy implementation als supports a delimiter parameter (see sample).


VFP code example

cString = "AAA aaa, BBB bbb, CCC ccc"
? GETWORDCOUNT(cString)          && Displays 6


Servoy code example

cString = "AAA aaa, BBB bbb, CCC ccc";
utils.stringWordCount(cString);                 // returns 6

// alternatively

cString = "AAA aaa, BBB bbb, CCC ccc";
globals.GETWORDCOUNT(cString);                  // returns 6
globals.GETWORDCOUNT(cString, ",");             // returns 3

Note: GETWORDCOUNT() is a function of the VFP2Servoy Toolkit
