Assume that you have a string that contains few statements out of which one includes the list of items. You may want to extract the list based on some delimitter.
Eg : The sentence contains the following ‘List of actors in Tamil Cinema: Vijay , Ajith , Suriya.’
We may need to extract the name of the actors Vijay , Ajth , Suriya from the sentence assuming that the list begins with colon and ends with a period.
<html> <head> <script> var input = 'List of actors in Tamil Cinema: Vijay , Ajith , Suriya.'; var startingIndex = input.indexOf(':'); var endIndex = input.indexOf('.'); var actorsStr = input.substring(startingIndex + 1, endIndex); var actorsList = actorsStr.split(','); document.write(actorsList); console.log(actorsList); </script> </head> <body> </body> </html>
