function public static function Unicode::substr

8.x-3.x Unicode.php public static Unicode::substr($text, $start, $length = NULL)

Cuts off a piece of a string based on character indices and counts.

Follows the same behavior as PHP's own substr() function. Note that for cutting off a string at a known character/substring location, the usage of PHP's normal strpos/substr is safe and much faster.

Parameters

string $text: The input string.

int $start: The position at which to start reading.

int $length: The number of characters to read.

Return value

string The shortened string.

Deprecated

in bootstrap:8.x-3.22 and is removed from bootstrap:5.0.0. Use mb_substr() instead.

Class

Unicode
Extends \Drupal\Component\Utility\Unicode.
