Conditionally pulling ranges from string

Recommended Posts

ledigeine

Sorry I searched these forums and google but couldnt find this, im sure its been brought up too. So maybe a link would help me or something.

I have a function that can return various strings, but I need to break the string up into 3 parts so i can use the text to pull from an xml file.

here are some examples of what could be returned:

Test Assigned/11.1/US

Test Assigned/7.1.1/UK

Testing Approved/9.0/CA

Shipped/11.0/US

I mean me not knowing what im doing, I was going to make the first 5 characters my first selection. Then based on that selection do if's to find how i should get the version number.

I hope theres a better way to do this.

How about

$aResult = StringSplit($sString, "/")
In $aResult[2] you will find the version number.

Have used AutoIt for many, many year now. If in doubt I always ask a very good friend: The help file ;)

Hmm its not working for me, the first array object pulls correctly but if i pull [2] it is just blank. 3 is the same way.

$func = _TreePath($treeview, $item)
   $path = StringSplit($func, "")
   $folder = $path[1]
   $vers = $path[2]
;~    $country = $path[3]
   $mapB = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Map", 20, 350, 120, 40)
  
  
   While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   Switch $msg
   Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   Exit
   Case $mapB
   MsgBox(0, "node selected", "Node: " & $path[2])
   EndSwitch
   WEnd
EndFunc

The _TreePath($treeview, $item) = Test Assigned12.0US in this case. I click the button to display a msgbox of what im trying to see. $path[2] and $vers are blank. $folder and $path[1] is returning Test Assigned as expected.

If i do not call $vers in the msgbox part the script will error saying: Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded

Not sure why it errors if its not called in the msgbox but will not error if its called.

In your first exampl you had "/" as a seprator, now you use "".

Please check the help file for StringSplit. If the separator is not found in the string then @error is set and the whole string is passed in $array[1]. So before you access the array please check @error.

If your strings have both "/" and "" you can use StringSplit to split on either of those characters by doing this:

$path = StringSplit($func, "/")

This will split on either character, 0 is the default flag, so I didn't set it in the function call.

My issue isnt with the splitting its with the variable that should be split. This treepath function i got is supposed to grab each section of the tree and put it all together in a string.

It seems if i make a msgbox that displays _TreePath($treeview, $item) it will display something like Test Assigned12.0US. Then if i set a variable like $func = _TreePath($treeview, $item) it will only say $func is = Test Assigned.

Could this be because when i open the screen it may default to the root of Test Assigned, so thats what its set to. The button processing part of code is done before the _treepath function is declared.

Sending the result of _TreePath to a variable or a function (MsgBox) doesn't make a difference. The result has to be the same.

Different results can only be caused by different input to the function or different processing.

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah its in the processing, If i set the msgbox to display _TreePath($treeview, $item) it will display the full path. example: Shipped/11.1/US

$func = _TreePath($treeview, $item)

Then if i set the msgbox to display $func it will always give me the first item in the tree view. So $func is set to that right when script is run but after selecting an item in the tree it does not get set to the real selection. Maybe I should set $func to the tree function in the tree function... if thats possible ha.

EDIT:

OMG i got it!

I had to set what $func is equal too in my while loop that checks for when the button is clicked. So when the button is clicked it sets $func to what ever the tree view is selected on! Sorry guys im new but im happy i figured it out. Thnx for leading me to the water ;)
