Use a portion of Page Title in a User Macro

We have some pages being created from templates where the title comprises a customer name and variable length ID separated by a hyphen. For example:

ACME Widgets - ABC123

I would like to use the ID portion of the title in a user macro. I'm not a developer but I do know that I can use the page title with $content.getTitle(). What would be the syntax used within the user macro for isolating the ID from that title?

This widget could not be displayed.

No guarantees, but you can try these methods:

var getID = str.substr(str.indexOf("- ") + 1);
IDVar.split('- ')[1]
[^- ]*$

Thanks you put me on the right path. This is probably not as elegant as what a developer could do, but seems to work:


#set ($idRegex = "^.+-\s")
#set ($pageTitle = $content.getTitle())
#set ($custID = $pageTitle.replaceAll($idRegex, ""))
