substringFill

 

 

Description

The substringFill function replaces each character in a specified substring {start end} within a String {string} with the specified fill character {fill}.

When to use

Use the substringFill function to populate a substring with a pattern String.

 

Syntax

(substringFill string start end fill)

(substringFill text start end fill)



Name Description AIS Types
stringTarget String or Text String or Text
fillThe fill character String or Text


Returns:

Returns true if the comparison is true, false if the comparison is false

 

Examples

Here are a number of links to Lambda coding examples which contain this instruction in various use cases.

Example_String_substringFill_001

This example shows the substringFill function replacing the characters in the old String with the caracters of the fill String.
