add space in combine

Dec 22 2010 | 1:17 pm

hi guys! is it possible to add a whitespace into the combine object?
i want to decide which arguments are combined with and which are combined without a space in between.

e.g.: combine Value1 Value2 Value3 = Value1 Value2Value3

best regards

Have you tried using a blank surrounded by quotation marks? Seems to work here.

but the problem is then he sends the quotation marks too…

i have now: combine Value1 " Value2" Value3

here a picture. as u can see Child_0 is a fixed value so he prints the quotation marks….

sorry forgot to add the picture…
if i would get rid of the quotations here. everything would just work fine

This is working correctly. The message box is drawing the quotation marks so you can see that the bits inside are one item (one symbol) – if you use print you will see that there are no actual quotation marks.

I find the printit object from CNMAT to be very useful in cases like this, because you can view each bit of a message in detail.
