Hello Everyone,

I have something very basic I need done. But I am new to AutoIT, and I would love to include it into a script i am using to install WLAN profiles con computers. The text output I get from the file is:

<*****>

There are 1 interfaces in the system.

Interface 0:

GUID: 70768bfc-d0e8-4630-a985-8843575194af

Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport

State: "connected"

Command "ei" completed successfully.

<*****>

I need to extract out the GUID number only. Every system I run this on, will have a seperate GUID number. I need to capture it, make it a variable, and then use it a couple of times.

I tried using the FileReadLine option, but I kept getting everything else on the line except just the number.

Any Ideas?

Maybe

$sString = "Interface 0:" & @CRLF & _
        "GUID: 70768bfc-d0e8-4630-a985-8843575194af" & @CRLF & _
        "Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport"
; $sString = FileRead($sThatFile)

ConsoleWrite(_ExtractGUID($sString) & @CRLF)


Func _ExtractGUID($sString)
    Local $aArray = StringRegExp($sString, "GUID:\h*([[:xdigit:]]{8}-([[:xdigit:]]{4}-){3}[[:xdigit:]]{12})", 3)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")
    Return $aArray[0]
EndFunc


♡♡♡

or maybe

#Include <File.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>
Global $aArray, $sFilePath = "Yourfilepath here")
_FileReadToArray ($sFilePath, $aArray)
$iPos = _ArraySearch ($aArray, "GUID:", 0, 0, 0, 1)
$aSplit = StringSplit($aArray[$iPos], "GUID:", 1)
$swhatyouwant = $aSplit[2]
MsgBox(0,"",$swhatyouwant)

Thanks for the fast response! But will these examples work if the number keeps changing?

example:

This files has a GUID number of 70768bfc-d0e8-4630-a985-8843575194af, but the next will will be completely different. I don't need the word "GUID", just the number. So if I understand the clips that Yoriz and trancexx gave me, it would always look for the same number? or a "place setting" for all future ones. All the file outputs I get, will have this same format, just different numbers.

I probably need more medication to grasp this.

Just a comment on their methods:

Trancexx is looking for groups of hex numbers, so a group of 8, followed by a dash, then a group of 4 hex digits and so on

Yoriz is looking for the string 'GUID: ', and then capturing everything after that marker.

Hope this helps you understand their code :idea:


#fgpkerw4kcmnq2mns1ax7ilndopen (Q, $0); while ($l = <Q>){if ($l =~ m/^#.*/){$l =~ tr/a-z1-9#/Huh, Junketeer's Alternate Pro Ace /; print $l;}}close (Q);[code] tag ninja!

When I try to run tracexx's version, I get the following errors:

C:\file.au3(4,31) : ERROR: syntax error

_FileReadToArray ($sFilePath, ByRef

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\file.au3(4,44) : ERROR: _FileReadToArray() called with Const or expression on ByRef-param(s).

_FileReadToArray ($sFilePath, ByRef $aArray)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\File.au3(192,49) : REF: definition of _FileReadToArray().

Func _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, ByRef $aArray)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\file.au3 - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)

I put $sFilePath = "C:\test.txt" declaring the var.

Looks more like part of my code, i never actually run it i just copied some functions out of the helpfile, hence the byref being in there, ive updated my post deleting the unessary byref.
