help parsing file name

Recommended Posts

sbrady

below is a bunch of code that takes desktop files selected in a window and displays a message box if the name contains the word "mix". The result returned (on line 40) is something like this:

C:\Documents and Settings\sebrad\Desktop\shawn\AR123 Smith, Bob v1 FULL MIX.txt

I just need to make

AR123 Smith, Bob v1 FULL MIX.txt

into this

AR123 Smith, Bob FULL MIX v1.txt

any ideas. Thanks.

#include <Array.au3>
Local $oErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "_ComErrFunc")$aWinList=WinList("[REGEXPCLASS:^(Explore|Cabinet)WClass$]")
For $i = 1 To $aWinList[0][0]
    ; Get base folder and selections
    $aSelection = _ExplorerWinGetSelectedItems($aWinList[$i][1])
   
; Display as strings
    ConsoleWrite("Explorer Window: " & $aSelection[1] & " Selection(s)" & @CRLF)
    For $j = 2 To $aSelection[0] + 1
        ConsoleWrite(@TAB & $aSelection[$j] & @CRLF)
    Next
    ; Display as array
    ;_ArrayDisplay($aSelection, "Explorer Instance #" & $i & " / " & $aWinList[$i][0])




; START SHAWN's CODE____________________________
; repeat with the selected items
For $File_Name = 1 To $aSelection; check if file name contains "Full MIX" or "SOT MIX" or "M&E MIX"
$result = StringInStr($File_Name, "mix",0,1)
If $result > 0 Then
    MsgBox(4096, "THE result", $File_Name);C:\Documents and Settings\sebrad\Desktop\shawn\AR123 Smith, Bob v1 FULL MIX.txt

sbrady,

Try this: ;)

; Full MIX or SOT MIX or M&E MIX

$sPath = "C:Documents and SettingssebradDesktopshawnAR123 Smith, Bob v1 FULL MIX.txt"
$sNewPath = StringRegExpReplace($sPath, "(?i)(.*)(sv.*)(s.*sMIX)(.txt)", "$1$3$2$4")
ConsoleWrite($sNewPath & @CRLF)

SRER explanation:

(?i)        - Case insensitive
(.*)        - Capture any number of characters until we find and...
(sv.*)     - Capture a space followed by a "v" followed by whatever there is until we find and...
(s.*sMIX) - Capture a space followed by any number of characters up to another space and "MIX"
(.txt)     - Capture ".txt"

$1$3$2$4    - Rewrite the captured groups in the required order

It works for me when I test it - how about for you? :)

Do you even test this stuff before posting it?

You have the start of your function inside a comment block which causes this script to be unusable as-is. Plus you forgot a couple of Next's in there as well.

This section of code was written wrong, it's not doing what you're thinking it's doing.

For $File_Name = 1 To $aSelection[0]; check if file name contains "Full MIX" or "SOT MIX" or "M&E MIX"
 $result = StringInStr($aSelection[$File_Name], "mix", 0, 1)
 If $result > 0 Then
  MsgBox(4096, "THE result", $File_Name);C:Documents and SettingssebradDesktopshawnAR123 Smith, Bob v1 FULL MIX.txt
  ; rename the variable $File_Name which is,   AR123 Smith, Bob v1 FULL MIX.txt    to this    AR123 Smith, Bob FULL MIX v1.txt
 EndIf
Next

Try it this way, might work for you.

M23 thanks for the help, I am outta here for the weekend and am booked with other projects on Monday and Tuesday, I'll be back at it on Wed. thanks for the help. I'll see if I can figure out your code. I have made some progress on my end but will be asking for guidance when I post. M23 Can you put a stop to the bullying. Brewman......I have to block you from my posts, so might as well not even try, I wont even see your posts, you are just too mean.

sbrady,

M23 Can you put a stop to the bullying

I wish I could put a stop to your constant complaining when people try to help you. :mad:

What you got there is called "constructive criticism" and you even got a suggestion as to how you might fix the code. If you call that bullying, how on earth do you live in the real world? :huh:

Grow up or go away. :naughty:

sbrady,

where is this in the help file?

Perhaps if you looked in the Help file under the StringRegExpReplace function name? ;)

Although most of the details are under StringregExp itself - the 2 pages are linked. But be warned, SREs are possibly the hardest thing I have ever tried to learn in computing and I am still far from expert in their use. I always point people to www.regular-expressions.info/tutorial.html to learn more about them. Good luck if you decide to have a go - you will need it. :D
