This function calls a given closure/function with every element in a given string list and returns true, if one of the closure calls returns true.

listSome(list, closure [, delimiter] [, includeEmptyFields] [, multiCharacterDelimiter] [, parallel] [, maxThreads]) → returns boolean

Member Function Syntax

Argument Reference

list string

string list to iterate

Alias: string

closure function

function/closure that implements the following constructor [function(any value, numeric index,string list, string delimiter):boolean].

Alias: function, callback, udf

Callback parameters:

  • value*any : current value from the list
  • index*numeric : position in the list
  • list*string : string list to iterate
  • delimiter*string : delimiter used to separate the string list

delimiter string
Default: ,
