StringInStr

5 posts in this topic

Hello, Using StringInStr how do I have it have to find the complete word? For example:

I want it to find "Tart" but not recognize "Tart" in the word "Start". Is there anything I can do that will make it find the whole word instead of just finding the word I want in a word?

$_String = 'Start'
$_StringInStr = StringInStr ( $_String, 'Tart' )
ConsoleWrite ( "$_StringInStr : " & $_StringInStr & @Crlf )

It returns 2

Tart is well recognize in Start string ( by default it's not case sensitive )

Donald8274,

A couple of possibilites for you: :x

;                  1         2         3         4         5
;         1        0         0         0         0         0
$sText = "Here are some words Start and a few more Tart and some to end"
; We should get 42

; Use the casesense parameter to detect initial capital
$iRet = StringInStr($sText, "Tart", 1)
MsgBox(0, "Result", $iRet)

; Use leading space - do not forget to compensate for the extra character
$iRet = StringInStr($sText, " tart") + 1
MsgBox(0, "Result", $iRet)

No doubt there are many more but I hope one of those will suffice. :P
