Parameters

Parameter

Description

includeEmptyFields

Optional. Set to yes to include empty values.

list

A list or a variable that contains a list.

delimiters

A string or a variable that contains one. Characters that separate list elements. The default value is comma. If this parameter contains more than one character, ColdFusion processes each occurrence of each character as a delimiter; you cannot specify a multicharacter delimiter.

Usage

If you use list functions on strings that separated by a delimiter character and a space, a returned list element might contain a leading space; use the trim function to remove leading and trailing spaces from a returned element. For example, consider this list:

<cfset myList = "one hundred, two hundred, three hundred">

To get a value from this list, use the trim function to remove the space before the returned value:

<cfset MyValue = #trim(ListLast(myList)#>

With this usage, the MyValue variable gets the value "three hundred", not " three hundred", and spaces within a list element are preserved.ColdFusion ignores empty list elements; thus, the list "a,b,c,,,d" has four elements.

Example

<cfscript>
       myList="Tokyo,Bangkok,Jakarta,Manila,Bangalore,Shanghai";
       WriteOutput(ListLast(myList)); //Returns the last element in the list, Shanghai
</cfscript>

Output

Shanghai
