Is that somehow possible to test if 1 ( or more) lines on list object has .ini at end of it?
like
line 1: sadsadsad.exe
line 2: fgsfds.rar
line 3: list.ini
line 4: ubersave.data
line 5: list2.ini

and then it picks:
list.ini
and
list2.ini
because they have .ini at end :3

(;c gawd i dont know anything about mmf2)
thanks in advance

EDIT: i got it somehow that string goes thru whole list, so how i can test if that string ends whit: .ini :I
EDIT2: NVM, got it working, after that string thing, i thinked that if i use stringparser and do something i might get it working.. ;D

You don't need string parser for this.

Run a loop the number of lines in the list times.

Every loop use the condition compare two general values.

And then use the expresion:

Lower$(Right$("string you are checking",4))
And check if it equals ".ini"

I'll make you an example when I get home.

You should untick the box for "1-based index" in the list object's preferences, as fastloops use a 0-based index.
Use "compare 2 general values" for the second event.
Use "Lower$()" so that it will recognize ".INI" aswell as ".ini" etc.

+ Whenever...
-> Start loop "Check for Ini Files", List Nb Lines( "List" ) times.

+ On loop "Check for Ini Files"
+ Lower$(Right$(List Line Text$( "List", LoopIndex("Check for Ini Files")), 4)) = ".ini"
-> Add 1 to Counter or whatever...


I'm curious why you need to do this.
If the list is a directory listing you could just use:

+ Start of frame (or whenever)
-> List: Load filelist from "C:\My Folder\*.ini"

Maybe that's not what you're doing though...
