StringRegExp - Match }

12 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm having some issue matching my string.

StringRegExp($MatchArray[$u],'channel":(.*)}',3)

The string looks like this...

blahblah..."channel":2}

I'm attempting to get the contents between the : and }

Thank you for any help!

Z

You mean the number. Try this

StringRegExp($MatchArray[$u], '.*":(d+)}', 3)

Zoreal,

Flag 3 with StringRegExp returns an array - so you need to access its elements: ;)

$sText = 'blahblah..."channel":2}'

$aRet = StringRegExp($sText,'channel":(.*)}',3)

MsgBox(0, "Return", $aRet[0])

Personally I would use StringRegExpReplace to get the string directly: ;)

$sText = 'blahblah..."channel":2}'

$sRet = StringRegExpReplace($sText,'.*channel":(.*)}', "$1")

MsgBox(0, "Return", $sRet)

All clear? :)

Well, in the sample I gave... I'm trying to grab the number 2. It won't necessarily be a number though. :wacko:

Also, I did try the d suggestion - It also failed to get the 2 out.

I'm using the StringRegExp to extract 1 piece - Given the dataset I'm using it on, it cannot return more the 1 value. Therefore...I'm using it as something like

$String = $SomeOtherVarsBeingPlacedHere & Chr(9) & _ArrayToString(StringRegExp($MatchArray[$u],'channel":(d*)}',3))

All I need is for the StringRegExp to return its $Array[0]=2

As Melba suggested you can use StringRegExpReplace() to strip out the information you need!

$String = $SomeOtherVarsBeingPlacedHere & Chr(9) & StringRegExpReplace($MatchArray[$u],'.*channel":(.*)}', "$1")

d means any digit (0-9) and if it is not a number then using d makes no sense.

Zoreal,

StringRegExp will either return True/False or an array depending on the flag - you cannot get the matched group directly. That is why I would go for the StringRegExpReplace option. :)

I had a change in input for this - The string now exists sometimes in each of the forms below.

"stop":27426,"category":"Customer satisfaction","start":26606,"phrase":"poor customer service","confidence":23,"channel":2

"stop":3516,"category":"Script Compliance","start":2826,"phrase":"thank you for calling","confidence":26,"channel":2}]

Notice the '}]' sometimes is appended after the number...

How can I structure the StringRegExpReplace to match only the channel's value?

StringRegExpReplace($MatchArray[$u],'channel":(/d*?)}?','$1')

This is what I came up with - Not working though :(

Zoreal,

This works for me: :)

$sText_1 = '"stop":27426,"category":"Customer satisfaction","start":26606,"phrase":"poor customer service","confidence":23,"channel":27'
$sText_2 = '"stop":3516,"category":"Script Compliance","start":2826,"phrase":"thank you for calling","confidence":26,"channel":29}]'

$sExtract_1 = StringRegExpReplace($sText_1, '(?i).*channel":(d*)}?.*', "$1")
MsgBox(0, "String 1", $sText_1 & @CRLF & @CRLF & $sExtract_1)

$sExtract_2 = StringRegExpReplace($sText_2, '(?i).*channel":(d*)}?.*', "$1")
MsgBox(0, "String 2", $sText_2 & @CRLF & @CRLF & $sExtract_2)

Or this way:

#include <Array.au3>
$sText = '"stop":27426,"category":"Customer satisfaction","start":26606,"phrase":"poor customer service","confidence":23,"channel":27' & @CRLF & _
'"stop":3516,"category":"Script Compliance","start":2826,"phrase":"thank you for calling","confidence":26,"channel":29}]'

$aResult = StringRegExp($sText, '(?i)channel":(.*)b', 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aResult)

$test='"stop":3516,"category":"Script Compliance","start":2826,"phrase":"thank you for calling","confidence":26,"channel":2}]'
$pos=StringInStr($test, 'channel":')
$test=Number(StringTrimLeft($test, $pos+8))
MsgBox(0, 'Yes?', $test)
