StringRegExpReplace - Simple Replace

Recommended Posts

SkellySoul

Morning  :bye:

It's 5:30 AM and been sitting here staring at the help file but it looks like an alien language to me.

I have the following example strings

[8]Bird
[9]Cat
[10]Dog

 

What I want is

Bird
Cat
Dog

 

Now a easy solution would be to just trim it to the left by 3, however there are cases when it could be 4 (example Dog being [10]), so I figured StringRegExpReplace() is what I am going to have to use unless there is a easier/better method.

I don't know how or where to start though  :ermm:

StringRegExpReplace($String, "[*]", "")

 

Thanks

      Hello community I just started to read the Powershell in a month of lunches book, I want to learn Powershell and make Gui's to execute Powershell scripts, I know that AutoIt is capable for a lot of things included Gui's, My question is how to start my journey, I have no prior programming experience, should I learn only powershell first and then jump to AutoIt, and are there any books for AutoIt, and more important where can I find a Gui builder for AutoIt, I read somewhere for KODA but I can't find it.  
      Any help/advice will be much appreciated.

      Hello
      I am relatively new to the world of Microsoft Office and the Excel UDF.
      I am trying to loop through every row in a spreadsheet and get the text/values from each column in the given row... so far I have looked into the Help file for the Excel UDF and the wiki page for Excel UDF but I have no idea about how this is done ... This is all I have in my script:
      Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, False, False, True) Global Const $sSpreadsheet = @ScriptDir & '\data.xlsx' Global $oSpreadsheet = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sSpreadsheet, True, False) ; ... I am placing my bet on the _Excel_Range functions... especially _Excel_RangeRead. I don't know how $vRange works so I would be glad if someone can point me in the right direction . What I would ideally like is to get all of the contents of the spreadsheet (it's just a normal text one) in a 2D array.
      Thanks in Advance!

      So I ran into this crazy "program" that cant be uninstalled via WMI, MSIExec, etc.
      The only way to uninstall it was from Add/Remove programs manually... Or I found if you find it in the registry under HKCU and run the  uninstall string, it will also uninstall.
      However the string in the registry cant be run directly in a cmd window because of the format errors.
      It has spaces without quotations, it has invalid characters, etc, etc 
      I know things run different when executed in the registry, so maybe there is a way I can run the regsitry key just like how the system does?  If so chime in.
      Otherwise I did this a crude way using several stringregexpreplace() functions and have it working.
      The solution feels so barbaric and crude that I wanted to post it so some of you guys better than me can clean up the code, maybe offer alternative ways to do it, or reduce the number of times I process the string.
      Here is the string right out of the registry:
      c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VSTO\10.0\VSTOInstaller.exe /Uninstall file:///C:/Users/it022565/AppData/Local/Temp/OOBAXTOWordAddIn/ApplicationXtender.AXTO.Word.vsto Here is my cave man scripting to turn this into a run able string.
       
      Func _UninstallOld() For $i = 1 to 100 ;Enumerate Registry $sEnumBase = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\" ;Look in HKCU for the uninstall string for the old version $sEnum = RegEnumKey($sEnumBase, $i) If @Error Then Return If $iDebug = 1 Then MsgBox(0, "", $sEnum) If StringInStr(RegRead($sEnumBase & $sEnum, "DisplayName"), "Word Addin") Then ExitLoop Next If $iDebug = 1 Then MsgBox(0, "", $sEnum) $sKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\" & $sEnum $sKey2 = RegRead($sKey, "UninstallString") If $iDebug = 1 Then MsgBox(0, "Original Install Location", $sKey2) $sKey3 = StringRegExpReplace($sKey2, "(?i)(c:.*exe)", '"$1"') If $iDebug = 1 Then MsgBox(0, "", $sKey3) $sKey4 = StringRegExpReplace($sKey3, "(?i)file:///", "") If $iDebug = 1 Then MsgBox(0, "", $sKey4) $sKey5 = StringRegExpReplace($sKey4, "%20", " ") If $iDebug = 1 Then MsgBox(0, "", $sKey5) $sKey6 = StringRegExpReplace($sKey5, '(?i)((?<!")c:.*vsto)', '"$1"') If $iDebug = 1 Then MsgBox(0, "", $sKey6) RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & '"' & $sKey6 & ' /s"', "", @SW_HIDE) EndFunc Basically step by step I add quotations, strip bad characters, etc.  Kind of proud for using look behind for once
      Looking forward to what you guys come up with.

      Hi
      I am trying to insert line numbers in to a string
      with this script
      Func _MyInc () Static Local $i = 0 $i += 1 Return $i EndFunc Exit _InsertLines() Func _InsertLines()     $String = "A" & @CRLF & "B" & @CRLF & "C" & @CRLF & "D" $NewString =  Execute("'" & StringRegExpReplace($String,"[\r\n]*",  "' & _MyInc () & '\1" ) & "'") MsgBox (0, "", $NewString) EndFunc but I get this:
      1A23B45C67D8
      I never really could master how Execute works here and I always get some working example and make substitutions.
      But this is the closest i could get...
