Hello guys!

Today I happened to download a program called RegexBuddy

This performs its function perfectly, but no such strings for AutoIt.

I ask you if you can translate this string into AutoIt.

\b[a-z]:\\                    # Drive
(?:[^\\/:*?"<>|\r\n]+\\)*     # Folder
[^\\/:*?"<>|\r\n]*            # File

\b[a-z]:\\(?:[^\\/:*?"<>|\r\n]+\\)*[^\\/:*?"<>|\r\n]*

In addition, the string "[az]", should not be corrected ... should not be: "[a-zA-Z]"? Thus, "[:alpha:]"?

I also ask if everything can be limited to a few extensions: *.png and *.jpg

PS: sorry for the previous post, was in the wrong section :mellow:

Your pattern is correct, only add uppercase drive letters and you are done:

ConsoleWrite(StringRegExp('C:\test', '\b[a-zA-Z]:\\(?:[^\\/:*?"<>|\r\n]+\\)*[^\\/:*?"<>|\r\n]*') & @CRLF)

*GERMAN* [note: you are not allowed to remove author / modified info from my UDFs]My UDFs:[_SetImageBinaryToCtrl] [_TaskDialog] [AutoItObject] [Animated GIF (GDI+)] [ClipPut for Image] [FreeImage] [GDI32 UDFs] [GDIPlus Progressbar] [Hotkey-Selector] [Multiline Inputbox] [MySQL without ODBC] [RichEdit UDFs] [SpeechAPI Example] [WinHTTP]UDFs included in AutoIt: FTP_Ex (as FTPEx), _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes

[a-z] will work fine as long as you add (?i) at the front of the expression. [:alpha:] by itself will fail. Classes have to be enclosed within another set of [].

[[:alpha:]] will work

An example of multiple classes.

[[:alpha:][:digit:]] is correct although it is the same as [[:alnum:]]

Thank you. Could you tell me how I can take only the *.png and *.jpg?

Where the extension should appear add this.

\.[pjng]{3}

By the way

I'm well aware that the old young SmOkey one prefers \r|\n|\r\n but I personaly just use \v+ which gets them as well
