velocity - finding part of string

Would anyone know how to find part of a string in velocity where you want the results from a character or point onwards? For example, if the string was ‘1234: text’ - i want to take everything from the colon onwards but i cant use sunbstring as the number before the colon could be any number of characters.

Thanks in advance,

I would combine indexOf(":") with substring() ( to get what you want. ie str_I_want = str.substring(str.indexOf(":"));

Fabulous - that worked a treat.
