Hi there

wonder if you can help me?

I have the following in a SQL field

"Launch", "1st", "2nd"

I want to get the value of that field using:

string[] roleoutType =   {systemSettings.displayContent("roleoutType") };

The problem is when I hover over the variable it says:

Dimensions:[1]
and the value of it is "\"Launch\", \"1st\", \"2nd\""

When it should be
Dimensions:[3]

Can someone please help me in getting this to work?

Thanks

use string.Split():

string source= "\"Launch\", \"1st\", \"2nd\"";
string[] parts = source.Split(',');

if you want to remove the quote marks:

string[] parts = source.Replace('"','').Split(',');
