String Property List

From RPTools Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

A string property list is a delimited string containing multiple key-value pairs in the format "var1=value1; var2=value2;..."

For example:

[h: stringPropertyList="var1=foo; var2=bar; var3=baz;"]

String property lists are zero-based (i.e., the first item in a string property list is item 0). When a key-value pair is extracted from a string property list using one of the available String Functions that work with string property lists, the value of the pair is considered a string, and must be converted to or evaluated to a number to perform numeric computations.

The default delimiter in a string property list is the semicolon (";"), however, the String Functions that work with string property lists permit the use of alternate delimiters.

Most String Property List Functions only work with the default delimiter.

String property lists may be stored in a token property.
