short path anywhere at the string

10 posts in this topic

these are lines at a .bat file

Example

regedit.exe /e:a "D:databackuplaptopCCleanerCCleaner.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwarePiriformCCleaner"

c:testtest7z.exe a "D:databackuplaptopThunderbirdThunderbird.7z" "C:Documents and SettingsEXPERTApplication DataThunderbird"

and i want

regedit.exe /e:a "D:...CCleaner.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER..CCleaner"

c:test...7z.exe a "D:data..Thunderbird.7z" "C:Documents and Settings..Thunderbird"

How can i do this ?

Or how do i do this at a good way.

Must this be done with StringRegExpReplace ?

Can i set where he can short it example

regedit.exe /e:a "D:databackuplaptop...CCleaner.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER...PiriformCCleaner"

regedit.exe /e:a "D:data...CCleanerCCleaner.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER...CCleaner"

regedit.exe /e:a "D:databackup..CCleanerCCleaner.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftware...CCleaner"

If you format this in a bat file this way I would be surprised if the bat file still worked at all. You could use stringtrimleft and stringinstr. I don't understand exactly what this does for you. Please explain further.


Get Scite to add a popup when you use a 3rd party UDF -> http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/user-calltip-manager.html

No the lines from the bat must be shorter to show at the screen not for run.

think i had to say it at the post before :)

to use at example notify udf, or baloontip, or popupwindows,......

You'd need to use either $DT_PATH_ELLIPSIS or $DT_END_ELLIPSIS when creating the label you're planning to put the text into.

There is a Window's bug with these variables though, End works like Path and vice versa. This is a Windows issue and not an AutoIt one.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$sPath = "C:\I am a very long path\Which needs to be\Shortened to fit\In the label.txt"

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Using $DT_PATH_ELLIPSIS:", 10, 10, 200, 20)
GUICtrlCreateLabel($sPath, 10, 40, 300, 30, $DT_PATH_ELLIPSIS)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xCCCCFF)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("MSDN says:" & @CRLF & _
                   "'replaces characters in the middle of the string with ellipses so that the result fits in the specified rectangle'", 10, 80, 480, 40)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Using $DT_END_ELLIPSIS:", 10, 200, 200, 20)
GUICtrlCreateLabel($sPath, 10, 230, 300, 30, $DT_END_ELLIPSIS)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xCCFFCC)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("MSDN says:" & @CRLF & _
                   "'if the end of a string does not fit in the rectangle, it is truncated and ellipses are added'", 10, 270, 480, 40)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

BrewManNH's suggestion seems appropriate.

You can use this kind of regexp to :

$string = 'regedit.exe /e:a "D:\data\backup\laptop\CCleaner\CCleaner.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner"'
$short = StringRegExpReplace($string, '("[^\\]+\\)(?:[^\\"]+\\)*([^"]+")', "$1...\\$2")
ConsoleWrite($short)

can some one turn this in c# ?

A somewhat surprising resurrection of your own old AutoIt topic.

But yes, someone can. You can. For a working example, try: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/xwewhkd1(v=vs.110).aspx. Or Google. It's not that hard. Try "regular expression search replace c#".

i did google the whole day long.

but that part is the problem

'("[^\\]+\\)(?:[^\\"]+\\)*([^"]+")', "$1...\\$2"

But... But... There's literally an example on that page (the second one) that does a regexp replace with a backreference and writes it to console, it does literally exactly what you ask. All you have to do is drop the pattern and the replace string in the example, fix the escaping in the strings to adhere to C# string escape rules, and run it.

I tried it on http://rextester.com/, works like a charm. Took me a few minutes to minutes to put it all together. including the two google searches. Note that I never wrote any C# code ever before in my life. It's really not that hard.

i had to do this this way but thanks SadBunny that helps a lot your post

several of my problems are solved because of that site.

 

string pattern = @"(""[^\]+\)(?:[^\""]+\)*([^""]+"")";
string data = regedit.exe /e:a "D:\data\backup\laptop\CCleaner\CCleaner.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner"
string replacement = "$1...\$2";
Regex rgx = new Regex(pattern);
data = rgx.Replace("\"" + data + "\"", replacement);
data = data.TrimStart('"');
data = data.TrimEnd('"');
