Multiple consecutive dots in rule

This question is answered

Hi team, 

Please suggest how I can create a rule which have double or triple dots (...) in the text. For example the rule is :

If input variable = "Ford..." then 

set flag = true.

I previously asked similar questions related to single quote in input text (link given below). However I am not sure how I can escape three consecutive dots using backslash.

Thanks,

Archana

  • No special syntax or escape characters are needed. As with all strings, in Corticon you use single quotes. See below:

  • Hello Chris,

    Thank you.

    I want to implement multiple rules using the text having dots. Something like below. Please suggest.

    Thanks,

  • That seems invalid syntax which is odd. I'd say everything between the ' should be considered as text. I'll check with Engineering why Corticon doesn't allow for the dots in the condition values.

  • This is a bug, it should be allowed. What version of Corticon are you using?
