I’m not sure. I’ve thought about that, but I’m sure the dynamic length of the array could make it pretty complicated. So if you have 3 array items and you are trying use ‘SplitArray 5’ in a component, then I suppose you would just get a blank as a result, but I don’t know how you would pick a specific array position from a dynamic length array. It’s not like Glide could provide us with an infinite list of array items, or even 100 or 1000, when trying to select an individual array item for a text component.
This makes most sense when each array item position is predetermined, which probably wasn’t the original intention of Split Texts, but like in my case, it would be awesome for splitting date and time into separate values that can be placed in separate components. Right now you’d have to use a sheet formula to duplicate the date so you can format it separately in Glide (one as date only and one as time only).
Really any CSV style value in a cell that comes from a template or user input, were the positions are predetermined. I’m sure there could be a lot of specific use cases.
But, yeah, I’m not sure what would be the best way for Glide to present that option to us. Maybe let us select a Split Texts column for a single value component, but also prompt us for an array position as well???
