Chopping off the extension

Recommended Posts

TheDcoder

Hello!  :bye:

docxFiles = _FileListToArray('e:\files\documents', '*.docx', 1)

For $i = 1 To UBound($docxFiles) - 1
    GUICtrlSetData($listDocx, $docxFiles[$i])
Next

;listDocx = controlID of the combo list

I want to chop off the .docx at the end, How can I?  :unsure:

GUICtrlSetData($listDocx, StringRegExpReplace($docxFiles[$i], "(.+?)(\.\w+)\z", "$1"))

Will it chop off anything after a "." (full-stop or point) ?? Ex: file is "my.document.docx" will be "my"?

TheDcoder, you always ask questions that would simply be answered by taking less time to post here than to test it.

So... 

Global $szMyStr = "my.document.docx" 
ConsoleWrite(StringRegExpReplace($szMyStr, "(.+?)(\.\w+)\z", "$1") & @CRLF)

Test it...

Edit:

I could almost see you asking if I had done something like this though:

Global $szMyStr = "my.document.docx"
ConsoleWrite(_stripExtension($szMyStr) & @CRLF)


Func _stripExtension($sStr)
    Return Execute(BinaryToString("0x537472696E675265674578705265706C6163" & _
        "652824735374722C2022282E2B3F29285C2E5C772B295C7A222C202224312229"))
EndFunc

I could test it but it will help googlers

I think a better question would be: How does that regular expression work?

There are two groups:

(.+?) ..... any characters repeated any number of times in any order.

(.w+)z ..... one dot followed by any word characters until the end of the string.

Googlers can fathom it out for themselves.

an edge case that wont be realized given the _FileListToArray parameters.

Hello again, i am having a difficult time with StringRegExpReplace, i want to convert File Path to File name

Here is a piece of code from my project

$locationOfFile = FileOpenDialog("Select Document", @DocumentsCommonDir, "Word File (*.docx)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST + $FD_PATHMUSTEXIST)
$nameOfFile = StringRegExpReplace($locationOfFile, )

I can understand how to set the pattern....

Thanks again for the help!  :ILA2:

I have been using these for some years to extract drive/path/name/ext information: :)

Please don't care, it was only a joke for Melba  :)

I only meant that here there is no backreference in the expression, so "$0" returns the whole content of the expression and $1, $2, etc are empty

Local $sFile = "C:\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.chm"
Local $sDotExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\.", ".$1$2$3 (the dot only is returned), \$0 = ""$0"", remains: ")
MsgBox(0,"", $sDotExt)

So this suffices :

; Dot Ext -           Example returns     ".chm"
Local $sDotExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\.", ".")

TheDcoder,

When you reply, please use the "Reply to this topic" button at the top of the thread or the "Reply to this topic" editor at the bottom rather than the "Quote" button - we know what we wrote and it just pads the thread unnecessarily. ;)
