str = StrDelete(sString,nStart,nLength)


This macro function deletes characters from sString, starting at the position nStart for nLength characters.


StrDelete('Hello',2,1) = 'Hllo'

StrDelete('Hello',2,3) = 'Ho'

StrDelete('Hello',2,4) = 'H'

StrDelete('Hello',2,1000) = 'H'

StrDelete('Hello',1000,3) = 'Hello' // no deletion


You do not have to check if the values you are passing for nStart and nLength are too high. If they are, they will be ignored (see examples above).


Note how StrDelete is complementary to StrCopy; if you look at the examples below you will notice that what is deleted from a string using StrDelete, is exactly what would have been copied with StrCopy, assuming the same parameters.
