How does the contain function work?

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

 

I want to check if the word 'POST' comes back in a contextual attribute: {{context.journey.events.00000._company.igOrder.igEntries.CarrierUid}}

 

So I want this:

 

If {{context.journey.events.00000._company.igOrder.igEntries.CarrierUid}} contains the word 'Post' ( not case sensitive), I want to show: "Post bezorging" in the e-mail.

 

I know how to use the if statements, but the documentation is totally not clear about how to use the contain function. 

 

Can someone help me with this?

 

Thanks!!

Hi,

 

Thanks for all your help!

It turned out that the field was an array, so I have to use the each function first. Did that and then it worked 🙂

Hello @icostan2 

 

You can do it like this.

 

{%#if(contains(context.journey.events.00000._company.igOrder.igEntries.CarrierUid, "post", false)) %}
If field containss post print something
{% else %}
Post not found in the field
{%/if%}

Hi, I tried these two ways, but they don't work. Do you know how else I could try it? Thanks for your help! @Manoj_Kumar_ Schermafbeelding 2023-03-22 103943.pngSchermafbeelding 2023-03-22 103838.png

@icostan2 remove the single quote around the event id

content.journey.event.'816428911'

Just tested it. That won't work either.

 

It seems all these functions are designed to work independently. If we wrap them within other functions they are not working.

Maybe try this? single quotes and little change in format.

if contains({{context.journey.events.00000._company.igOrder.igEntries.CarrierUid}}, 'Post') {
  // email
}

Hello @icostan2, If possible, could you please share the code?

 

It does not work for me.

Sure! 

 

Note that the field that I use is an array, so if your field is not an array, you should not use the 'each' part:

 

{{#each context.journey.events.xxxxxx._company.igOrder.igEntries as |entry|}}

{%#if contains(entry.CarrierUid, "post", false) %}PostNL{%else if contains(entry.CarrierUid, "zzz", false)%}zzz{%else%} 
External {%/if%}


{{/each}}
