Last Modified: January 12, 2018

Returns the number of bytes in a string.

Note  

Strings are encoded in UTF-8. For strings containing characters in the U+0000 through U+007F range, the number of bytes in a string is equivalent to the number of characters. However, for strings containing the characters U+0080 through U+7FFFFFFF, the number of bytes is greater than the number of characters.

string

A string whose number of bytes you want to compute.

This input also supports any data type that includes only strings, such as an array of strings or a cluster of strings.

length

Number of bytes in a string.

The structure of this output matches the structure of the string. For example, if you wire an array of strings to string, this output returns an array of integers. Likewise, if you wire a cluster of strings to string, this output returns a cluster of integers.
