Extract number from HTML and paste it into the form

Recommended Posts

Hello, how to extract data from HTML and paste it into a certain field on a web site?

The necessary HTML code as follows (the number may vary):

<td class="bd" align="right"><!-- Balance Start -->100600.66<!-- Balance End --></td>

subtracted from the number 100.00 and insert in the

$oInput =_IEGetObjByName($oIE,"sum")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oInput, '100500.66')

Welcome to the Autoit forum. :)

I would use a RegExReplace like this: ;)

$sText = '<td class="bd" align="right"><!-- Balance Start -->100600.66<!-- Balance End --></td>'

; Extract the number - using a RegEx means we can ignore the actual number of digits
; We use Number to get the variable into the correct type
$nNumber = Number(StringRegExpReplace($sText, ".*Balance Start -->(d*.d*)<!-- Balance End.*", "$1"))

; Which means we can easily do arithmetic here
ConsoleWrite(($nNumber - 100) &amp; @CRLF)

The RegEx works like this:

.*                 - Any number of characters
Balance Start -->  - Followed by this string
(d*.d*)         - Here we capture any number of digits, a decimal point and then any more digits
<!-- Balance End   - Until we find this string
.*                 - Followed by any other characters

$1                 - And we replace the whole string with the captured decimal number

Please ask if you have any questions. :)
