LEN() - string.length

Determines the number of characters in a character expression, indicating the length of the expression.


VFP code example

nLength1 = LEN("Hello World") && count the number of characters (11)

nLength2 = LEN(ALLTRIM(customers.lastname))


Servoy code example

var cString = "Hello World"
var nLength1 = cString.length // count the number of characters

// gets the length of the customername from the
// customer field after trimming the spaces
var nLength2 = utils.stringTrim(lastname).length

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