erase String doesn't work

My string s is “X1”

The string s is from the array cutted_string (s = cutted_string[0]), which was created by using the .split() function (cutted_string = a_string.split(“_”, true, 1)

If I try to erase the X:

var new_s = s.erase(0, 1)

I get:


But it should be


(as string)

What am I doing wrong?

Weirdly enough, erase is the only String function that doesn’t return anything. So instead the original string s is altered. Print the original string instead of new_s to get “1”.

Edit: See Core: disabled method bindings that were not compatible with the new system · Issue #43311 · godotengine/godot · GitHub

Thank you very much!

Now it works
