7 posts in this topic

hello again to all helpers,

I have a bit more complicated question to ask,

I need to retrieve a word from an HTML page, it looks like this:

<tr style="color......">

<td class="filelink" style="...."<a href="javascript....." style="...">33333</a></td><td>texttocopy</td>.......... so on

I have the number 333333 , and i need to retrieve the text that comes after it : "texttocopy"

ALOT of thanks,

nir

Try _StringBetween.


Scripts & functions Organize Includes Let Scite organize the include files

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

MultipleFuncsWithOneHotkey Start different funcs by hitting one hotkey different times

Try _StringBetween.

you mean that i should grab all the text in the html , and then check between ('33333','<td>') ?

Yep, that should do the trick.

Try avoiding to use that on the entire html. it might take a long time dependng on how long the html is.

if you downloaded the source you could filereadline() untill stinginstr() for 33333 is diffrent then 0

or try to split the html string.

Its a lil more work to code, but it will go faster.

You may also find that _IETableWriteToArray may give you what you need.

I think StringInStr, StringTrimRight, StringTrimLeft, StringLen will be the important set of commands for this... :)


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
