msdn constants importer

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Well, perhaps some of you know that problem: You just wanna create a new amazing UDF and recive your informations from msdn. Well, ok exporting functions is not that problem, but its quite horrible to expand all the struct-constants from msdn in your script and format it in the way you want to.

So i wrote a little automation, so you just have to run this script, copy the link from msdn in your clip and the script will automatically write the constant in a file you specified before. Quite simple, isnt it?

Here is an example link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms941841.aspx

Hope you enjoy it!

;PLEASE CHANGE IF YOU WANT
Global Const $sVarBefore = "$tag" ; will be: $tagTITLE_OF_THE_CONSTANT
Global Const $sConstFileToWrite = @ScriptDir&"\Clip_Constants.au3"; the Constants will be written in the next line of the file
;STOP CHANGE

FileWrite($sConstFileToWrite,";Constants importet from msdn with 'msdn constants importer' by GtaSpider'"&@CRLF&@CRLF)

HotKeySet("^c","_clip")
HotKeySet("^C","_clip")
HotKeySet("^{ins}","_clip")

While 1
    Sleep(500)
WEnd

Func _clip()
    HotKeySet(@HotKeyPressed)
    Send(@HotKeyPressed)
    Local $sURL = ClipGet()
    If StringInStr($sURL,"msdn.microsoft.com") Then
        TrayTip("Clip",$sURL,2)
        Local $sSource = BinaryToString(InetRead($sURL))
        Local $aRegExp = StringRegExp($sSource,'(?s)<div class="title">(.*?)</div>.*?<pre class="libCScode".*?>.*?\{(.*?)}.*?</pre>',3)
        If UBound($aRegExp) < 2 Then
            MsgBox(16,"Clip","Error, RegExp returnd bad values")
        Else
            Local $sTitle = $aRegExp[0]
            Local $sData = $aRegExp[1]

            $sData = StringStripCR(StringReplace(StringReplace($sData,@LF,''),@CRLF,''))
