Text (ex9 metrix) problem

Hello guys,

i have got a text in an iobox and i want to choose with getslice which slice is shown to the spector, with “text metrics”, but i don’t know why it only shows a few slices correctly and the other ones are overlaid.

hope you understand what i mean.
you can look at the file if you like :)

From what i see this list doesnt really provide much structuring, you need a lot of guesswork to reliably find the titles here. Do you have another data source with more formatting. something like a csv or an xml file?

The Separate (String) node will cut the incoming string into individual slices after the occurence of a specific character. In your patch you didn´t provide any separator in the pin. If you put a | in there, things work slightly better.

Note that you can see much more in your IOBox when resizing them.

I agree, it is a very Bad Database indeed.

But, I notice the word “Votes:” is always on the 2nd line off every chunk off movie info, so using that I was able to split up your movie, so you can use a getslice, and that returns you all the Data about 1 movie.

And since I like the challenge…

Hello again,

thanks for your efforts, but I think I explained my opinion a little bit bad.
I recornized that i had not the hole text in my file, sorry.

The separation i did is working, i get erverything wich is between a “|”(pipe), so i allways want that the year is shown at first, wheater there is more information or not, like this:



film x

my problem is:
that the text is not corrctly shown with the “text (metrics EX9)”
so there the text is displayed twice, infact its overlaid, but I do not find out why.

i hope now you know what i mean, i sry that i don’t explain it like this befor :(

i attached the fiel with the full text now.
sry also for my bad database…

ok the overlay was infact of my old version of the “text(ex9 metrix)”, now it shows the text correctly, but
the linebreak is not working…
