How auto complete String with a 6 digit Pad?

Recommended Posts

Hi, i need your help, i have a simple problem to resolve but my mind it´s stucked.

my serach in all the autoit forum don´t have any good result.

well this is my problem:

i have a computername random, the name its taked from the mac address of the lan board and always keep the first 6 digits but of course change someones at the last, but i don´t know how to make for autocomplete the last digits of the string to compare with the name taked from the actual computer name.

this is an example of my script.

$Nombre=RegRead("HKLM64\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\ComputerName\ActiveComputerName", "ComputerName")
$Nombrenuevo=RegRead("HKLM64\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\ComputerName\ComputerName", "ComputerName")
;THE RESULT OF $NOMBRE IS: abcdef123456

if $Nombre="abcdef######";here must autocomplete the rest of string from abcdef because ###### change the last 6 digits random, but always keep the first 6 digits (abcdef)
    MsgBox(0,"",$Nombre & "Is correct"
    MsgBox(0,"",$Nombre & "Is wrong, you need modify this"

any sugestion it welcome.

If it is random each time, you can't hard code it. What about checking just the first (static) part of the string?

If StringLeft($Nombre, 6) = "abcdef" Then
