Hi.

I am receiving a response from a web post method that comes in as one long string, eg:

"Data passed successfully - Item 4 |98765|01120| true"

I want to catch the data after the second "|", which in the example will be "01120".  Any ideas on how to do that?

Try:
string yourString = "Data passed successfully - Item 4 |98765|01120| true";
string[] parts = yourString.Split(new char[] { '|' });

string theValue = parts[2];
