Trouble with regexp, please help!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, (im new to autoit scripting so bare with me :) been trying to make a script that lets you choose window and then choose the length of a number to find, problem is this, the script works in part of choosing window but if a number is longer it takes part of that number instead of searching for the exact length, the script works perfectly if the numbers on the window goes from little to bigger but not the other way around, im thinking maybe i can read the whole window, set the clipboard with the read info and sort the numbers in some way or is there any other approach for this, here is the script.

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
$data2 =InputBox( "Exact name of the window to search" , "" )
$num2 = $data2
$data =InputBox( "Length to search for" , "" )
$num = $data
$Clip = WinGetText($num2)
$RegExp = StringRegExp ($Clip, "(\d{" & $num & "})", 1)
If IsArray ($RegExp) Then

Thanx in advance!

To select only numbers that are exactly the length specified change the regular expression line to this.

$RegExp = StringRegExp ($Clip, "\D(\d{" & $num & "})\D", 1)
