How can I remove a list of items after found item?

Hello,

I would like to be able to remove a list of items after another found list item.

A example list item could be : "3000-SE-Pine-St-Seattle-WA-99200"

I wanted to be able to capture everything before "Seattle" but I was thinking a second list could be used to delete everything after any matched 2nd list items.

<cfset streetTypeSuffix = "dr,st,lk,rd,ave,ln,way,ct,loop,blvd,hwy,cir">

So expected results would be... "3000-SE-Pine-St"

Problem is if Seattle is a two word city so I can't always just use "listDeleteAt" @ positions 1,2 & 3 but I do know the values in "streetTypeSuffix" list.

Unfortunately, CF doesn't have much in the way of "sub list" functions. So you have to loop in order to reconstruct the list. Another option is to try a regex like:

<cfset text = "3000-SE-Pine-Blah-Seattle-WA-99200">
<cfset newText = reReplaceNoCase(text, "\-(dr|st|lk|rd|ave|ln|way|ct|loop|blvd|hwy|cir)\-.+$", "-\1")>
<cfdump var="#newText#">
