StringRegExp Pattern Help

Recommended Posts

Could someone make a pattern for this. Been testing out various patterns for hours.

String

<div class="profName"><a href="ShowRatings.jsp?tid=1632499">Abaquita, Edwin</a></div>

My Pattern

(?<=\QShowRatings.jsp?tid=\E).*(?=\Q</a></div>\E)

I just need the name (Abaquita, Edwin). The problem with my pattern is the link number (1632499) changes with every name and there are multiple names on a page, also the number of digits varies with each name.

Thank you in advance.

Make the pattern

<a\s+href="ShowRatings.jsp\?tid=[^>]+>(.*)</a>\s*</div>

and you should get the name part as capture #1

      Hi guys I need your help.
      I have string like this : "TDM111A5,      RCT222Y5/ 7  ; FDT444E4 /8 , ABC222R5"
      I need find a coma or semicolon and delete white spaces before and after them
      The output should be a string and/or array 
      String : "TDM111A5,RCT222Y5/ 7;FDT444E4 /8,ABC222R5"
      Array:
      TDM111A5
      RCT222Y5/ 7
      FDT444E4 /8
      ABC222R5

      Is there a way to output the regex matches into a file?
      I have a script to compare two files and check for regex matches.
      I want to output the matching regex of 'testexample.txt' to another file.
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> $Read = FileReadToArray("C:\Users\admin\Documents\testexample.txt") $Dictionary = FileReadToArray("C:\Users\admin\Documents\example.txt") For $p = 0 To UBound($Dictionary) - 1 Step 1 $pattern = $Dictionary[$p] For $i = 0 To UBound($Read) - 1 Step 1 $regex = $Read[$i] If StringRegExp($regex, $pattern, 0) Then MsgBox(0, "ResultsPass", "The string is in the file, highlighted strings: " ) Else MsgBox(0, "ResultsFail", "The string isn't in the file.") EndIf Next Next

      Im creating a code that will work in this sequence:
      1. Copy the text (question) in one atea of the screen
      2. Catch the 2 strings (number)
      3. Multiply the 2 strings ( $1*$2)
      4. Click the next area to put the answer
      5. Paste the answer
       
      This is my code
       
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 479, 802, 3, 1) ;Clicking all of the text
      Send("^c") 
      $x = StringRegExpReplace(ClipGet(), 'What is (\d*) x (\d*) \?$', "$1*$2")
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 480, 844, 1, 1)
      ClipPut($x)
      Send("^v")
       
      However the output is this
      $1*$2
       
      How can I make it solve itself? Because I tried this code:
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 479, 802, 3, 1) ;Clicking all of the text
      Send("^c")
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 480, 844, 1, 1) $x = Execute(StringRegExpReplace(ClipGet(), 'What is (\d*) x (\d*) \?$', "$1*$2"))
      ClipPut($x)
      Send("^v")
      Output is just blank text
