Removing last backslash from Path

12 posts in this topic

Hi,

I googled this, but I couldn't find this.

Im trying to remove the last forward slash of a path (Ex: C:UserMyPath) so that it looks like C:UserMyPath.

Thanks in advance

valfar999,

StringTrimRight preceded by a check with StringRight would seem the easiest solution. :)

Thank you Melba23, that actually makes sence. I'm still getting use to the huge number of functions in Autoit and didn't know about StringTrimRight function.

Thank you

Thank you Melba23, that actually makes sense. I'm still getting use to the huge number of functions in Autoit and didn't know about StringTrimRig Tht function.

Hi, Welcome to the AutoIt Forums.

Please note: This is NOT a RTFM type of post. It is very important to me that you understand that. That said, I recommend you read thru the Help file a few or a few hundred times and become familiar with the functions that AutoIt has. Then, when there is something you need to do, a light bulb will appear above your head and you will probably remember reading about a useful function in the Help file. Of course, the forums are here for a reason, you know, so ask away if you get stuck on something!

Good luck with your project.

Or just

$sNewPath = StringRegExpReplace("C:\User\MyPath\", "\\$", "")

... but it's true that learning basic functions like StringLeft, StringRight, StringLen, StringReplace... will be more rewarding for you.

6 differents answers for your question : as you can see, there are plenty of ways to make that !

This is how I do it.  It assumes path is a complete path, not "C:"

; Return Directory part of path without trailing slash
Func _FileDirNoSlash($path)
    Return StringLeft($path, StringInStr($path, "\", 0, -1) - 1)
EndFunc   ;==>_FileDirNoSlash

old faithful...

Func _PathRemoveTrail($sPath)
    If StringRight($sPath, 1) == '\' Then
        $sPath = StringTrimRight($sPath, 1)
    EndIf
    Return $sPath
EndFunc
