  1. How can I get a full name for a folder that starts with "data_" and ends with random numbers and characters? I want to get a folders name inside Temp Directory. Not sure how to even start. 🤭 Any suggestions? 🤔
  2. Hi everyone, I have this string: "main_lot 0x111” & @CRLF & “main_version 0xABC” & @CRLF & “main_number 0xDEAD123” & @CRLF & “main_version 0x333" And I'm trying to extract one specific hexadecimal number, actually main_version from this string by using StringRegExp: How to get 'ABC' from it? I'm not sure if the original string uses @CRLF, @CR or @LF as a line breaks (received from linux over ssh plink.exe) I have tried this code but it doesn't work #include <Array.au3> $sLog = "main_lot 0x111&rdq
  3. Inspired by PHP's preg_split. Split string by a regular expression. Also supports the same flags as the PHP equivalent. v1.0.1 Example: #include "StringRegExpSplit.au3" StringRegExpSplit('splitCamelCaseWords', '(?<=\w)(?=[A-Z])') ; ['split', 'Camel', 'Case', 'Words']
  4. Is there a way to output the regex matches into a file? I have a script to compare two files and check for regex matches. I want to output the matching regex of 'testexample.txt' to another file. #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> $Read = FileReadToArray("C:\Users\admin\Documents\testexample.txt") $Dictionary = FileReadToArray("C:\Users\admin\Documents\example.txt") For $p = 0 To UBound($Dictionary) - 1 Step 1 $pattern = $Dictionary[$p] For $i = 0 To UBound($Read) - 1 Step 1 $regex = $Read[$i] If StringRegExp

  7. I have an XML file and every time there are three lines in a row with only <null/> in them, i want to insert a fourth line with <null/>. Each line starts with 3 white spaces, followed by <null/> and ends with a white space followed by CR LF. The presence of the three lines as described is unique to the points where I want to insert a line in this document. I'm trying to figure out how to apply the repeating part of a regex {1,4} but apply it to this whole segment. So far I have the below which picks up an individual line ok: ^\s{3}<null/>\s\r\n
  8. I am trying to search in a web browser dates XX/XX/XXXX that are also links. I want to click them after and remove them from the array. This is all I have so far. Nothing shows up. What am I doing wrong? ControlFocus ("Customer Center", "", "") Local $aArray = StringRegExp('(..)/(..)/(....)', '(..)/(..)/(....)', $STR_REGEXPARRAYFULLMATCH) For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1 MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "RegExp Test with Option 2 - " & $i, $aArray[$i]) Next
  9. Hi All, I'd like to replace 'COMMA' with ',' for example: $myString = "COMMA" StringRegExpReplace($myString, 'COMMA', ',') Now I've tried escaping the ',' in various ways unsuccessfully, such as: '[,]' "[,]" '\,' [,] seems to work in the pattern, I just can't figure out how to use it in the replace, and it seems everyone online is only interested in removing/replacing commas lol. I also tried creating and using a variable as the replacement but also didn't work: $myComma = "," $myString = "COMMA" StringRegExpRep
  10. Hi all, I still suck at regex as always and I need some help. According to the regex tester I normally use this should be working fine but it doesn't.... StringRegExp($sString, "\A[1-9]+[0-9]*(\-[1-9]+[0-9]*)?,*\Z") I basically want to match: all numbers EXCEPT 0, but including 10, 20, etc with each number separated by a comma and allowing a "-" separated range as a value For example: 1-5,7,10-12 I've spent a couple hours modifying it but I'm not sure where I've gone wrong. Any help would be appreciated!
  11. I have a file (see attached file) with a string all line and this problem on here is I want to separate all $00:, $03:, $10:, $20:, $25:, $30:, $40:, $45:, $110:, $115:, $120: and $T. It's mean that each $ with value start a new line ( a new paragraph). I tried with Regular Expression in notepad++ ex: Find ($00:, $01:, $03: and so on) with regex (\$)([0-9]+): and replace is \r\n\1\2 (I think \r\n is @CRLF (not sure :() ) Find $T with regex (\$T)(.*?)(\$T) and replace is \1\2\r\n\3 When I try these regex to replace in notepad on StringRegexReplace the results is incorrect . I have re
  12. Hi! I need a little bit help from some RegEx experts please: I would make my ISN AutoIt Studio faster when generating the scripttree. And what would be better to do this via regex? Problem is i am not really good at this regex stuff. So maybe someone could help me here. The challange is to get all Global Variables from a script via RegEx in a Array. Here is a example script with some tests: Global $Var1 = 1234 Local $Local_Var = 1234 $Ignore_me_too = 1234 Global $Var2 = 1234, $var3 = 1242 Global $ahIcons[30], $ahLabels[30] Global Const $Var4 = iniread(
  13. Can anyone tell me why this isn't working?.. #include <array.au3> $regexp = StringRegExp("test 'a b c'", "'([^']|'')*'|\S+", 3) _ArrayDisplay($regexp) trying to split this "test 'a b c' 'some other '' test'' ...'" into: 0: test 1: 'a b c' 2: ... but it gives me: 0: test 1: c
  14. Hi guys, I am pretty bad with regex, and am having some trouble trying to come up with an expression for a certain type of string. Basically I want to be able to tell if a string is of the format: AA#####A Where the A's are any letter from A-Z and the #'s are any digit from 0-9. I've been playing around with a regex tester online for a while but I can't really seem to grasp the concept very well. Could anyone give me any tips? This isn't exactly an AutoIt specific question which is why I didn't post it in General Help & Support.

  16. Hello. I need to list only the folders that has a name composed of numbers only. How do I do this? OBS: I just posted the relevant content to the folder. Global $path = "G:\jobs\" For $i = 1 To $aArray[0] Local $search = FileFindFirstFile($path & $aArray[$i] & "\[0-9]" ) I tried with "\*.*" and it returns me the expected result, but the other doesn't.
  17. Hi all, it's been a while since I last used regular expressions and I find myself out of time to experiment with this particular issue, so I throw myself upon your mercy and expertise. I am looking to create a function that will say whether or not a supplied string is a valid UUID or not. Local $sTestF = '4C4C4544-004A-4C10-8054-B7C04F46343' Local $sTestT = '4C4C4544-004A-4C10-8054-B7C04F463432' ConsoleWrite('False = ' & _IsValidUUID($sTestF) & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite('True = ' & _IsValidUUID($sTestT) & @CRLF) Func _IsValidUUID($s

  19. I am trying to rebuild an old single signon script that has been giving us a bit of trouble lately. I didn't write it and it was written in another script language. If the target program is already open it will have the current user's last name as part of the window text, which I am trying to compare against the user name to see if I should just WinActivate or Process Close and start the program over. I will be provided the username like "jones", or "smith" and the title check works fine for last names (with no spaces), but if the last name DOES contains spaces, say "Nom De Plume", then all

  22. Hello , I am trying to find the best way to spilt this string: :<nick>!<host mask> PRIVMSG <channel/nick> :<message> into an array like this: Global Enum $SENT_BY, $HOST_MASK, $SENT_TO, $MESSAGE $aArray[$SENT_BY] = "<nick>" $aArray[$HOST_MASK] = "<host mask>" $aArray[$SENT_TO] = "<channel/nick>" $aArray[$MESSAGE] = "<message>" (Stuff between <> is dynamic) I can do that with inefficient code but I think it is possible to do it more efficiently with RegEx Thanks i

  25. So a few times I have wanted/needed some sort of input validation (aka input mask) we had an old udf somebody made that sort of worked but was hard to use and a bit limited. As I started to learn regex of late sort of by chance I realized it could be used as a pretty great input validation. But it was a lot of code if you wanted to do it for multiple fields. So wrapped it up into a little function and sharing. Far from a UDF so putting in the example section, and I am not sure if what I am doing is even "good code" but it works for me and hope it is usefull for somebody. Basic RegEx knowle
