This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it


I submit this as being a more understandable and expandable structure. Users may want to modify this into more general WebContent CF by incorporating the factor to be extracted (e.g. title) as a function parameter.

Let ([
webcontent = GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( webviewer ; "content");
searchstring = "title>";
startpos = Position ( webcontent ; "<" & searchstring ; 1 ; 1 ) + Length ( "<" & searchstring );
endpos = Position ( webcontent ; "</" & searchstring ; 1 ; 1 )
Middle ( webcontent ; startpos ; endpos - startpos )

Hi David,

Thanks for submitting your version. You did indeed made it more expandable and much more understandable for the users.

I promise I'll tidy up my next CF submissions ...
