Add Left() and Right() text functions

Builtin & User functions
Not right now

It is easy to implement, and makes coding more lowcode.

If we can do things like:

  • Left("Daniel", 3) resulting in "Dan"
  • Right("Daniel", 3) resulting in "iel"

Now you have to use substr() and check on length of the string.

Hi Daniël,

First of all, thank you for your idea and contribution.

We know that there is room for improvements in the amount and type of Built-in and user functions that OutSystems provide. However, in this specific case, there is a way to already accomplish that use case, as you also mentioned.

We will be focused on new built-ins and functions that cover different use cases that currently are not possible to achieve. Due to this, I will mark this idea as "not right now".

Keep those ideas flowing and send us your feedback as you did.

Thank you!

Daniël, you could create an Extension of course, if there isn't already one :).

Hi Kilian,

Allready on my todo list to check if it exists and if not create one.

Regards,

Daniel

Thanks Daniël Kuhlmann for the Idea & Guidance.

Have published the component for the same with some additional functions.

Hope you will update it in future for new missing functions.
