Hey, I have a string that ends up being something like “0:09.92” and I want it to be a number. Is there any was (maybe a regular expression) where I can get the last 3 numbers of that string (9.92) and make them into a double type integer. Or maybe just get the number brfore the second . (9) and make that into a number?
Please use the OS X forum unless your question deals specifically with an older application or Mac OS version. Moving to OS X…
An integer doesn’t have any decimals.
Try something like this:
set test to "0:09.92"
set ASTID to AppleScript's text item delimiters
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to ":"
set test to (last text item of test) as real
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to ASTID
