_Stringbetween v2.28 to v3.3.6

Recommended Posts


I just had to move this application that I built a year or so ago over to a new machine due to winXP no longer being supported but I can't seem to get it to work.

I have this code  which should be pretty simple.

$FindTable = _StringBetween($HTMLFile,"Today's Date","</Table>","-1")

  I have looked at my $HTMLFile variable and it looks good.  All the data is there but the $FindTable value is always an error.  Did something change between these versions?  I saw changes with 3.3.7 but those shouldn't apply to this.

Without seeing our html file it is difficult to say fo sure. Try using Default (False) for your last parameter, or posting the error you're receiving.

how do I see the error?  I am just returning a value of 0 for $FindTable

for better reference here is the code

$FindTable = _StringBetween($HTMLFile,"Today's Date","</Table>","-1")

   if $FindTable = 0 Then
      $ParseError = 1
      $FindRows = _StringBetween($FindTable[0],"<tr","</tr>","-1")
      $FindColumns = _StringBetween($FindRows[0],"<td","</td>","-1")
      Global $HeaderBuild[ubound($FindColumns)][ubound($FindRows)]

   For $i = 0 to Ubound($FindRows)-1
      $SplitColumns = _StringBetween($FindRows[$i],"<td","</td>","-1")
      For $s = 0 to Ubound($SplitColumns)-1
         $varArray = "<" & $SplitColumns[$s]
         $ArraySplit = _StringBetween($varArray,"<",">")
         For $d = 0 to Ubound($ArraySplit)-1
            $varArray = stringreplace($varArray,"<" & $ArraySplit[$d] & ">","")
         $HeaderBuild[$s][$i] = StringStripWS($varArray,3)

Example of xmldom to parse a table:

#include <File.au3>
$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
_FileCreate(@DesktopDir & "\some.html")
FileWrite(@DesktopDir & "\some.html","<HTML><BODY><Table>   <tr>        <td>row1:cell1</td>     <td>row1:cell2</td>     <td>row1:cell3</td> </tr>   <tr>        <td>row2:cell1</td>     <td>row2:cell2</td>     <td>row2:cell3</td> </tr></Table></BODY></HTML>")

$sXML_File = @DesktopDir & "\some.html"

$oTable = $oXML.selectSingleNode("//Table")
$oRows = $oTable.SelectNodes(".//tr")

For $oRow In $oRows
    $oCells = $oRow.SelectNodes(".//td")
    For $oCell In $oCells
        ConsoleWrite($oCell.Text & @CRLF)
