listRetainAll

Syntax

string listRetainAll(stringList, searchString)

Parameters

Returns

Retained only occurrences of searchString in stringList.

Description

This function retains only occurrences of searchString in stringList. Optional: Leading or trailing * in searchString are used as wildcard.

Note: String lists are a series of strings stored inside one string. The elements are separated by a semicolon (";"). Each item must be followed by a semicolon, also the last one! The data type is "string", thus it is not an array as used in other scripting languages.
