UDL: Deal with string of numbers



  • Hello,

    I am trying to create an UDL and I am facing the following problem. I have a text like

    blablabla dd.dd.dd blablabla

    where I assume blablabla to be non important text and d to be a digit. The string dd.dd.dd represents three set of numbers. The first are the digits between the space and the dot, the second set the digits between the dots and the third set the digits after the dot and before the space.

    I would like to highlight the first set of digits in red, the second set in green, and the third set in grey. How could I achieve that. I have been reading in the documentation but I can not find myself a way to solve this.

    Thanks!



  • @Jorge-De-Anda-Salazar I do not think you can do this with UDL.



  • Thanks for the reply @Jim-Dailey. You have save some of my time trying to figure out a way to do it.

    However, if the above is not possible Can I have the string dd.dd.dd display under a single color. Is that possible?

    Sorry for the late reply; I’ve been on a quick vacation. :-)
    There is no regular expression support in UDL, so I am pretty sure this too is not possible.
    But, don’t take my word for it. You can do some cool things with UDL if you play around with it, but I don’t know how I would highlight dd.dd.dd.
