In this tutorial I will discuss about how to compare to two strings in uipath rpa
First lets take two string type variable in variable panel in uipath studio
as shown below
Here in example I have taken 2 string type variables where we can do comparison and compare_result variable will hold the result of comparison of strings.
Syntax is :
As shown below
Here CompareTo will give 3 possible outputs
0 -When both strings are lexicographical correct
1-If first string is lexicographical more than second string
-1 -If first string is lexicographical less than second string
Here comparison happens in below manner
1)First Character in first string will compared by first character in second string - if first character from first string is more than first character from second then returns "1",else less than returns "-1"
if both are same then comparision between second character happens between the strings like above.
