 +You can easily access the individual parts using the token array notation, eg `%TriggerValue[3]%` will be the third comma-separated value, and `%TriggerValue[3];​%` will be the third semicolon-separated value, and `%TriggerValue[3] %` (note the space between the `]` and the `%`) will be the third space-separated value (8.0.4+).
