    Reading text from file

    Hi,

    I'm testing out the demo version of Multimedia Fusion 2 (great product and lots of fun).

    Is there any way to search in a text file for a specific string? I know how to read data from the beginning and how to read data based on a starting point (i.e. the character number in the file). I'm looking for a way to open a text file or look at a RFT object and search for a string that I specify and than pull out a copy for use in a string object.

    Thanks in advance for the help.
    Ken

    Without using extensions that aren't available in the demo, the easiest way I can think of is to load the file into a List object, which will split it into lines - then to use its FindStringExact() expression to see whether it exists on any line or not. I'm not sure of the line length limits for the List object, though.

    Are there extensions in the full version that will do this?

    Thanks for the help and suggestion I'll check it out tonight.

    Yes, I had the demo for a while ( a full 30 days!). This can be done easily with the full version but the demo version, I'm sure it can be done just not easily.
