RegEx Help - Parsing HTML

Recommended Posts

Why will this not work? I have spent a few hours on this one little problem. I have tried everything I can think of to make it work, but never wants too. I have tested the pattern in a few other scripts and it works fine. the @ERROR says it is a bad string - but how can String($HTML) be bad? Is it to much text for it to string?

$IE = _IECreate("C:\Users\Ned\Dropbox\Public\Findings.html", "", 0)
$HTML = _IEBodyReadHTML($IE)
_IEQuit($IE)
$HTML = String($HTML)
$array = StringRegExp($HTML, '(?<=\QNew: <a href="/items/view/\E)(.*?)(?=\Q">\E)', 3) ;gets new item numbers
_ArrayDisplay($array)

I dont see any error checking. How do you know its coming from String()? Have you tried printing $HTML to the console to verify that _IEBodyReadHTML() worked?

I have made string $html print to console and everything was there like it should. The pattern works fine when I put the raw text in the script directly, just never when it gets it from an ie window.

Wait...If you manually add the string $html to your script it works? That is weird. I have a few ideas that might work, but nothing to figure out whats actually going wrong. Maybe try putting on the clipboard and then reading back?

Clipput($html)
$html = clipget()

If that doesnt work maybe :graduated:

Clipput($html)
$html = clipget()
_filecreate(@scriptdir & '\Temphtml.txt')
filewrite(@scriptdir & '\Temphtml.txt', $html)
$html = fileread(@scriptdir & '\Temphtml.txt')
filedelete(@scriptdir & '\Temphtml.txt')

I ended up going a different route using table to array function since it wasn't working. Luckily I am able to use that function. Never tried the other options you gave in last post, but thanks for the help.

      Hi, 
      I have a string like this : 
      Global $Msga = "urrent directory is /send.  (Submission of file with log number 29381077284 is confirmed)";
      I want to extract the number 29381077284  from the string. I did StringSplit to split based on "(" and then use space to reach there, But it's not a good choice. 
      Can anyone help me with regular expression to find the number from String using AutoIT. TIA

      I have this example string:
       
      2020-06-08 09:23:33 : abcdefghifjklm How to trim just the right part? Or how to trim this text right to left?
      I want to trim this string right to left until ' : '.
      In ohter words: I need the 'abcdefghifklm' text.
      I have tried StringTrimRight, but that requires 
      The number of characters to trim. Unfortunately StringSplit trims the left part of the strings.

      This is my take on string triggers, triggers on specific strings.
      Able to simple text pasting,
      opening links (as long as there's a www. http:\\ or https:\\ at the beggining)
      and is able to open applications, if there is a parameter in the parameter field, it uses it.
      Shows your external, lan, and gateway ip's.
      Able to change system volume by a set percentage, reading from the inputbox the number the user sets, if 0 or empty uses system default.
      I made this because the existing string trigger applications didn't do it for me.
      I did this for me, but if someone finds it useful, all the better.

      Hi guys!, i have a problem to convert Python code to AutoIt code, in fact i had not coded with Python yet!, this code is about permutation a string's case, i will be happy with your comments :)❤;

      Python code:
       
      # Python code to print all permutations # with respect to cases # Function to generate permutations def permute(inp): n = len(inp) # Number of permutations is 2^n mx = 1 << n # Converting string to lower case inp = inp.lower() # Using all subsequences and permuting them for i in range(mx): # If j-th bit is set, we convert it to upper case combination = [k for k in inp] for j in range(n): if (((i >> j) & 1) == 1): combination[j] = inp[j].upper() temp = "" # Printing current combination for i in combination: temp += i print(temp), # Driver code permute("Hello") # This code is contributed by Sachin Bisht
      My code in AutoIt:
      ; https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/permute-string-changing-case/ _PermuteCase("ABC") Func _PermuteCase($sText) If StringRegExp($sText, "^[A-Za-z]{1,}$") Then Local $iLength = StringLen($sText) ; Get length of the text. Local $iMaxPerm = 2 ^ $iLength ; Number of permutations is 2^n Local $sLow_Text = StringLower($sText) ; Converting string to lower case Local $asChrs = StringToASCIIArray($sLow_Text) ; Split the text into array of chars. For $i = 1 To $iMaxPerm Step 1 For $j = 0 To $asChrs[0] ;................................................... Next Next Else Return SetError(-1, 0, "Error: Input is incorrect!") EndIf EndFunc ;==>_PermuteCase

      Hello,
      I'm programming an automated email and have a line that is really long.  I am using SciTE as my console.   Here is that line in test.  
      $rc = _INetSmtpMailCom($SmtpServer, $FromName, $FromAddress, $aArray2[$i][3], $Subject, "This is a form letter meant for " & $aArray2[$i][1] &" "& $aArray2[$i][2]&"." & @CRLF & "The letters in "& $aArray2[$i][1] &" "& $aArray2[$i][2] & "'s first name are " &  $aArray2[$i][4] &" " & $aArray2[$i][5] &" "&$aArray2[$i][6] &" "& $aArray2[$i][7] &" "&$aArray2[$i][8] &" "& $aArray2[$i][9] & @CRLF & chr(13) & "Thank you." & chr(13) & " ", $AttachFiles, $CcAddress, $BccAddress, $Importance, $Username, $Password, $IPPort, $ssl)  The body of the email that the $rc function is creating begins after $Subject and ends after chr(13) & " ",. That body is the primary cause of the length.  When this goes live, I can easily see adding 3000+ characters to this line.  Is there a line limit?  Is there a way to wrap text in SciTE?  Do you have a trick to break that line up into multiple lines for ease of coding and reading?
      "Ideally I would like to be able to type text like this " & @CRLF & "so that I could read what I am writing easily " & @CRLF & "without having to keep scrolling to the right or " & @CRLF & "to the left.  Scrolling is quite a pain in the neck " & @CRLF & "and with 5000 characters, it might even become  " & @CRLF & "a programming showstopper." I am not able to pass this entire string as a variable because this string contains variables embedded in a for loop.  Thus, in so doing, I would multiplicate the loop.    I'll take any help I can get!
