StringRegExpReplace to correct HTML tag

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I get a problem with StringRegExpReplace 

Here is the code:

$string = "< / li  >  < /  li  >  < /li > < / li> < / li  > </ li  >"
$array = StringRegExp($string, "<(.*)/(.*)(li)(.*)>", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($array)

I want to replace all with </li>, and the final result is:

</li>  </li>  </li> </li> </li> </li>

Please help, thanks

luckyluke,
 
Why use an SRER?  You can do it very simply like this: :)

$sString = "< / li  >  < /  li  >  < /li > < / li> < / li  > </ li  >"

; Replace all spaces and then add one between the ><
$sNewString = StringReplace(StringReplace($sString, " ", ""), "><", "> <")

ConsoleWrite($sNewString & @CRLF)

Good enough?  Or is there something you have not told us? :huh:

The requirement sounds incomplete. I hope there isn't any more possibilities you have left.

Here is what you ask

;working - match anything inbetween "<~li~>" , and replace everything with a "</li>"
$string = StringRegExpReplace("< / li  >  < /  li  >  < /li > < / li> < / li  > </ li  >", "<[^>/]*/[^>]*?li[^>]*>", "</li>")
MsgBox( 64, "", $string)

Regards :)

In the first, it will not work any more will i use stringreplace in a HTML code, eg:

<BR>new ControlPanel 
<LI>perfect . < / Li >
<LI>perfect Taskbar Button Position . < / Li >Improved 
<LI>StartMenu . < / Li >
<LI>Improved maximum , minimum , close button . < / Li >
<LI>New Improved Taskbar Improved 
<LI><A href="" target=_blank>. Control Panel </A>View 
<LI>Improved address bar 
<LI>Adressbar Improved text size . . . < / Li >
<LI>Adressbar Glow Improved Text 
<UL></UL><BR>

The requirement sounds incomplete. I hope there isn't any more possibilities you have left.

Here is what you ask

;working - match anything inbetween "<~li~>" , and replace everything with a "</li>"
$string = StringRegExpReplace("< / li  >  < /  li  >  < /li > < / li> < / li  > </ li  >", "<[^>/]*/[^>]*?li[^>]*>", "</li>")
MsgBox( 64, "", $string)

Regards :)

I think this is i wanted. Stringregexp is so difficult to learn. I will test this with other HTML tag

Thank you very much!

LuckyLuke,

So as both PhoenixXL and I suspected there was more to your request that you initially stated. In future, please make your questions clear from the beginning - then we do not waste time producing code which does not fill the actual requirement. ;)

I just tested this simpler version which works fine too.
I'm not RegExp guru so I don't know if this my simpler solution has some disadvantages or bugs
 
$string = "a <1 /2 li 3 > 4 < /  li 5 > 6 < /li > < / li> < / li  > </ li  > < / li  >  < /  li  >  < /li > < / li> < / li  > </ li  >"
$string = StringRegExpReplace($string, "(<.*?/.*?li.*?>)", '</li>')
ConsoleWrite($string& @CRLF)

@Zedna,

Your method doesn't have any bugs, it will work as expected. Still using lazy operators will cause the engine to have a lot of back-tracking( at least in this scenario ). Therefore I prefer greedy operator.

      I have a smartphone and I use it to access my email. However, when composing an email on it I have a problem. My list of phone contacts on the phone is very different from my list of email contacts in my Thunderbird desktop app.  I use my Gmail address book to store primarily phone contacts, and I use Thunderbird for my list of email contacts. I wanted a way to get my Thunderbird contact list onto my smartphone to be able to compose emails to addresses in that list. Here's my solution.
      I wrote a script to export my Thunderbird Personal Address Book to a csv file. It then reads that file and re-writes it with html wrappers around the data to make it into a nicely formatted web page. It then uploads the htm file to my website. On my smartphone, I created a shortcut to the file's URL and whenever I click it, I get the list displayed. Each contact shows name and email address along with a COPY button that will put the address into the clipboard. Then in my email client, I can easily paste that address into it. Alternatively, clicking on the actual email link will open a new message dialog in your email client with that address already entered.
      To use the app, all you need to do is use Thunderbird and have a webserver available. You'll need to download the FTPEX.AU3 file from this website and make a few changes to some constants around line 17 for FTP login info, etc.

      What would be the best way to grab the last digits of this <span>? One of the problems I know I am going to have is sometimes it will be 1 digit other times it might be 3. 

      I am trying to get the list of spans and I get this error.

       
      $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "span") $sTxt = "" For $oInput In $oInputs     $sTxt &= $oInput.Innertext & @CRLF Next MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Form Input Type", "Form: " & $oInput.form.name & @CRLF & @CRLF & "         Types :" & @CRLF & $sTxt)

      Hi guys!
      A pretty simple UDF to convert HTML to PDF using wkHTMLtoPDF.
      It uses the C API of the tool (DLL), so no external process, no ActiveX or COM sh*t.
      See the example, and the documentation of wkHTMLtoPDF.
      Cheers
