The Purpose

To manipulate text by slicing from the start and/or end.

How to Configure

Copy the Code

let Text = inputData.Text;
let Text1 = Text.slice(4); // slice off the first 6 characters (0-5)
let Text2 = Text.slice(-6); // slice off the last 6 characters
let Text3 = Text.slice(0,5); // slice only the first 6 characters (0-5)
let Text4 = Text.slice(3,-4); // slice from after first 4 characters (0-3) and before the last 4 characters

// NOTE: First character position starts at 0

output = [{Text, Text1, Text2, Text3, Text4}];
