I'm trying to use the following expression to change the text of a text field on the stage at different time intervals as indicated by a slider control.

s = "may \rthe FLAME of peace, properity and happiness|and \rwarm your heart";
ind = effect("Slider Control")("Slider");
text.sourceText = s.split('|',ind);

new to AE expressions so how does this work?

s = "may \rthe FLAME of peace, properity and happiness|and \rwarm your heart";
ind = effect("Slider Control")("Slider");
t = s.split('|');
text.sourceText =t[ind];

updated my expression...(I know some javascript)

Real quick note here; prosperity is spelled wrong.

Y'know, I have GOT to spend time learning about expressions. I didn't follow any of that.

A New Year's resolution, perhaps?

give yourself a cow button, and if you want, for easier control, divide the slider by 5 or something so you can easily animate without your mouse slipping around.
