Xporter: Split a String and iterate over elements

Hello all,
In a doc template I have a String that I want to split and iterate over the elements, the idea is something like:

%{ var members=’${Deciding Member(s)[10803]}’.split(‘<BR/>‘);}
#{for member=members}
${member} (Member)

But nothing is printed. I can print any of the elements like this:

%{ var m=’${Deciding Member(s)[10803]}’.split(‘<BR/>‘);if(m[0]) {m[0]} }%{ var m=’${Deciding Member(s)[10803]}’.split(‘<BR/>‘);if(m[0]) {“(Member)” }}

But in this way I have to repeat manually, and I don't have a limit in the number of elements.

Hi @Pablo Gonzalez Guardado 

When using Javascript, the code only executes inside the %{...}, the result cannot be used interactivity with outside code.

Since the Javascript only returns a single result, you can create a list of values to return and separate the values with the newline char '\n', which will result in a list of values printed in several lines.

Please contact Xporter Support ( if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Rogerio Paiva [Xporter Support Team]
