Hi,

I am reading in some data-params into a form and there is one hidden field that I need to populate that requires the data-param value to be stripped before any special characters.
So if the data-param value = 'Harry & Sally' then I would need to populate the hidden field with 'Harry '

Is there a way to split the value before any special character other than spaces?

Thanks
