Hello, everyone

For example, my instance is called @Instance@ID.

Is there a way to check if half of the name matches, then the result is true.

I think also to add in autoload, but there will be many types of instances.

What's your suggestion?

You can use the String functions


If the string begins or end with the same string each time.

If it doesn't, then check out the RegEx class, in particular capturing groups to check if a string matches the regular expression and capturing sub-strings for id's and such.

Something like:

if "Instance" in
