StringReplace but only exact matches

7 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I'm even new to AutoIT and just occupied myself with a little script, that should replace some variables in a script.

It works like this:

You put your script into the clipboard. Then you tell the GUI what to replace e.g. $a should be replaced with $bb

The problem is, that i didnt find out, how to make string replace just replacing EXACT MATCHES.

E.g.:

$a = 55

$ab = 10

replace $a with $b

=> he returns

$b = 55

$bb = 10

But that's wrong ;) I want to replace just $a and not $ab

=>

$b = 55

$ab = 10

Pleace help me :)

Here's the Script:

$a = 55

replace $a with $b

=> he returns

$b = 55

$bb = 10

But that's wrong :) I want to replace just $a and not $ab

=>

$b = 55

$ab = 10

You don't really tell what the String is, in which you want the replacement to occur.

If it's the whole text, like:

Local $sText = '$a = 55' & @CRLF & '$ab = 10'

you could use

Local $sChanged = StringReplace($sText, '$a ', '$b ')

Few notes:

- When you want to treat a global variable, doing Dim $add = 1 doesn't set the global one if in context of another scope (like within another function) but create a local one, set it's value to 1 and the global $add is still 0 so take this into consideration. :)

- The inputs are not ordered correctly so it's something like:

input1          input2
input6          input3

..making StringReplace to replace wrong content.

Have a look:

It's using StringRegExpReplace to have more control on the search and replace pattern.

First of all Thanks for the fast answers and Tips

I even read about this RegExp stuff but I thought that would be too complicated for me with all these pattern stuff etc.

so, thanks for this part :)

I Fixed some of the bugs (e.g. the wrong input order)

but it's still not returning, what I wanted to be returned

Here is again a little example :

$a = 55
$ab = 10
$aab = 'aac'
$uo = 745

Posted Image

but he returns

$q = 55
$qb = 10
$qab = 'aac'
$wo = 745

but actually I wanted to get this:

$q = 55
$ab = 10
$t = 'aac'
$uo = 745

Is this even possible??????

Thanks in advance

btw i forgot this :

this is the current code:

BennyBB,

You can see I added a "\b" which looks for a word boundary - and removed some of the pattern. You can remove the <<<<<<<<<< lines when you are happy.

SRE patterns are probably the hardest thing I have ever had to try to learn in programming (although I am sure there are far harder things out there!) and I am far from confident with creating them - so do not get too discouraged! :)

I hope it helps.

Yeah... pattern was wrong:

If StringLen($input1) > 1 Then $code = StringRegExpReplace($code, "(?m)(?i)(?:^|\b)\Q" & $input1 & "\E(?:\b|$)", "\" & $input2)
If StringLen($input6) > 1 Then $code = StringRegExpReplace($code, "(?m)(?i)(?:^|\b)\Q" & $input6 & "\E(?:\b|$)", "\" & $input3)
If StringLen($input7) > 1 Then $code = StringRegExpReplace($code, "(?m)(?i)(?:^|\b)\Q" & $input7 & "\E(?:\b|$)", "\" & $input4)
If StringLen($input8) > 1 Then $code = StringRegExpReplace($code, "(?m)(?i)(?:^|\b)\Q" & $input8 & "\E(?:\b|$)", "\" & $input5)
If StringLen($input9) > 1 Then $code = StringRegExpReplace($code, "(?m)(?i)(?:^|\b)\Q" & $input9 & "\E(?:\b|$)", "\" & $input10)
If StringLen($input11) > 1 Then $code = StringRegExpReplace($code, "(?m)(?i)(?:^|\b)\Q" & $input11 & "\E(?:\b|$)", "\" & $input12)

Well done my good man.

That can probably be put into a loop too. Using For/Next Step 2 with simple GUICtrlRead()
