Divide series of messages in separate messages

Dec 13 2012 | 9:44 am

I have a Java object that is spitting out data as follows:
SERIES 1: set of parameters (some 60 symbols)
SERIES 2: set of parameters (some 60 symbols)
SERIES 3: set of parameters (some 60 symbols)

When I just route the output of the Java object to a message box, I can see only series 3. Is it possible in some way to get series 1 and 2 in separate message boxes in some way?

Could you add a prefix of the series number? If so, something like this could work:

You could do the same sort of thing with a counter driving the gate, but there is some synchronization grief with that approach.

If there are always 3 series , that is 3 lists, with no separate prefix for each one, you could try this

If the number of series, is not the same all the time, it will not work.. at least not properly!
Hope it helps,

sorry for that, i did not read Chris’s whole text…
the solution i gave, its actually the second one he suggest.

The synchronization could be a problem, but as i said, if the amount of lists is constant, there should be no problem. I have used this, with a great deal of stress about the possibility of this not working, but it in the end was fine. It was running steadily for about an hour.
