String Remove Different Characters

Recommended Posts

stamandster

So I wrote this to help me with not having to keep putting the same set of removal's in place and having a huge mess of code. I figured it may help others. And perhaps someone may be able to improve on it with RegExpReplace (maybe ??).

$String = 'He said something$,%Weird: "YEAH"; fix this comment'
Msgbox(0,'StringWithRemove",_StringWithRemove($String,1,1,1,1)

Your output would be "He said something weird: yeah". The function is pretty self explanatory

$iRemoveComment = 1 Removes Comments, 0 disables

$iRemoveQuotes = 1 Removes Quotes, 0 disables

$iRemovePercentSigns = 1 Removes Percent Signs, 0 disables

$iRemoveDollarSigns = 1 Removes Dollar Signs, 0 disables

$iRemoveCommas = 1 Removes Dollar Signs and 2 replaces them with a space

$iStripWS = Whatever you use normally for StringStripWS

Func _StringWithRemove(byRef $sStringWith, $iRemoveComment = 0, $iRemoveQuotes = 0, $iRemovePercentSigns = 0, $iRemoveDollarSigns = 0, $iRemoveCommas = 0, $iStripWS = 0)
; Remove Comments
IF StringInStr($sStringWith,';') and $iRemoveComment = 1 then
$sStringWith = StringSplit($sStringWith,';')
$sStringWith = StringStripWs($sStringWith[1],2);$sStringWithComment[1] ;
Endif
; Remove Quotes
IF StringInStr($sStringWith,'"') and $iRemoveQuotes = 1 then $sStringWith = StringReplace($sStringWith,'"',"")
; Remove Percent Signs
If StringInStr($sStringWith,'%') and $iRemovePercentSigns = 1 then $sStringWith = StringReplace($sStringWith,'%',"")
; Remove Dollar Signs
IF StringInStr($sStringWith,'$') and $iRemoveDollarSigns = 1 then $sStringWith = StringReplace($sStringWith,'$',"")
Select
Case StringInStr($sStringWith,',') and $iRemoveCommas = 1 ; Remove comma's completely
$sStringWith = StringReplace($sStringWith,',','')
Case StringInStr($sStringWith,',') and $iRemoveCommas = 2 ; Replace comma's with a space
$sStringWith = StringReplace($sStringWith,',',' ')
EndSelect
; Strip Leading Whitespace
IF $iStripWS <> "" or $iStripWS <> "0" then $sStringWith = StringStripWS($sStringWith,$iStripWS)
EndFunc ; ===> _StringWithRemove
