[Solved] Stripping a Phone Number String

Recommended Posts



I am getting a string as an input, and I need to strip it from every possible character,

except these:

- Digits

- '+'

- '(' and ')'

so like if the input is: "+1  (310)  555-1234"

the output will be this: "+1(310)5551234".

What is the easiest way to doit in AutoIt?

Thank you

I would do it this way:

StringRegExpReplace("+1  (310)  555-1234", "(?i)[^\+\d\(\)*]", "")
