Searching for a string with a specific length

3 posts in this topic

Hey :P

just cant figure out this one :

I have a text given like this:

<li data-item="result" data-obid="77536552" id="result-77536552"
    class="resultlist box result_entry_l">
  

  <div class="result_entry_box">
    <div class="gallery hideable">
      






<a href="/expose/77536552" data-is24-replaceUrlOnClick="/Suche/controller/exposeNavigation/goToExpose.go?exposeId=77536552&resultListPosition=1&searchUrl=/Suche/S-T/Wohnung-Miete/Bayern/Muenchen/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/true&referrer=RESULT_LIST_LISTING" class="hideable">
  
    <div class="galleryLoading"><i class="fa fa-picture-o"></i></div>

This is just a small part of a huge website. Now I would like to filter this: 77536552 out of the whole text. I already know that I can use "_StringBetween" to better define it's position but how can I search for a string which is exactly 8 chars long and only consists of numbers? Guess I will also have to delete duplicates afterwards...

Thanks in advance & best regards

Andrewz

      So I have a loop that keeps reading data from an array and searching it for the same value. If the value is no there it does work then adds the value to the array to prevent it from doing the same work.
      If _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) = -1 Then Work.... _ArrayAdd($ID,$filearray[$i]) EndIf This is in a for loop hence $i
      So what is happening is the code works great for several hours. After a period of time _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) will result in -1 even if $ID = $filearray. So it ready as if there is no data in the array. Anyone have this problem? 
       
      Also I am just running in using F5 not compiling it and running it if that makes a difference.

      I am reading a CSV file which is tab seperated as below.
      Local $aArray = FileReadToArray($file) And now, I am splitting this main array record wise so that Array contains internally another arrow to represent each row.
      For $i = 0 to (UBound($aArray) - 1) ;MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[$i]) $aArray[$i] = StringSplit(StringStripCR($aArray[$i]), Chr(9),2);Chr(9) for tab ;_ArrayDisplay($aArray[$i]) Next Afther that, _ArrayDIsplay is able to see the individual internal arrays.
      _ArrayDisplay($aArray[1]) But If I try to access the individual element of it as below.It is not showing any result.
      MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[1][1]) Any suggestion, below is the sample csv file.

      Need some help understanding why the ConsoleWrite works inside 2nd For loop but not out side. Between Audit Wiki, Help file , Forum searching (lots of code reading), and YouTube ( shout out to TutsTeach), I have not been able to find the reason why. 
      $sIniPath = "installLog.ini" ; - Get section name $iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath) ; - Get Keys and Vaules For $a = 1 to UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1 $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[$a]) For $b = 1 to UBound($keys) - 1 $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "") $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "") $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "") ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo) My intention is to use the variables later for Listboxes. Any explanation, forum post links or whatever would help. Sorry also very very new to Autoit.
      Also here's the ini file.
