NicePerson,

Either use _StringBetween or an SRE like this: :P

#Include <String.au3>

$sText = '<a href="/user/UserName" onmousedown="yt.analytics.trackEvent'

$aResult = _StringBetween($sText, "/user/", '" on' )

MsgBox(0, "Result", $aResult[0])

$sResult = StringRegExpReplace($sText, '.*?\/user\/(.*?)".*', "$1")

MsgBox(0, "Result", $sResult)

To explain the SRE a bit:

.*? - the smallest non-capturing group of characters before...

\/user\/ - the non-capturing group '/user/' (we have to escape the slashes)

(.*?) - the smallest capturing group (because we are interested in this bit) after the previous groups and before...

".*? - the longest non-capturing group beginning with "

$1 - replace the string with the first capturing group (what we were looking for)

Makes your brain bleed! :x

I hope all that makes sense - please ask if not. :shifty:
