Dear all ,
I use this
.split(lineSeperator);

Open in new window

to split based on passed variable from user input, its work fine , but when user use '\n'
for new line its not working as expected.

Often what you have is carriage return, then line feed.
\r\n

Open in new window


Therefore, make sure the character is indeed a newline versus a carriage return as well as not both.

I think this is why your previous question showed the optional carriage return ( \r? ). The standard line terminator under Windows is carriage-return/line-feed ( \r\n ). Not everyone follows this, though. Sometimes you have to make either optional in order to match against target data. In your case, I think you are looking for the optional carriage return, so I would modify your example to:

.split('\r?\n');

Open in new window

Hi,
it works if you create a new regexp based on the input variable like:
function RunSplit() {
    var teststring = 'Hello\nWorld';
    var sep = new RegExp($('#mysplit').val());
    $('#result').html(teststring.split(sep).join("|"));
}

Open in new window


See example here:

In HTML it's <br>; otherwise, try to use vbCrlf instead of the text \n.

Can you attach a sample of the text as a file so that we can see what you are working with?
