How to add colon every 2 characters in string

Recommended Posts

I am trying to turn this "00204070F48F" into this: "00:20:40:70:F4:8F". I thought I could use _StringInsert but doesn't seem to be working

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <String.au3>

;turn this "00204070F48F" into this: "00:20:40:70:F4:8F"
$x = "00204070F48F"
$StrLen = StringLen($x)
$sInsertString = ":"
$pos = 2

DIM $results[6]
For $i = 0 To 4
    $results[$i] = _StringInsert ( $x, $sInsertString, $pos )
    $pos = $pos + 2
    msgbox(0, "", $results[$i])
Next

Something like this:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <String.au3>

;turn this "00204070F48F" into this: "00:20:40:70:F4:8F"
Global $sX = "00204070F48F"
Global $sResult, $iPos = 2, $sInsertString = ":"
For $i = 0 To 6
    $sResult = $sResult & StringMid($sX, $i * 2 + 1, 2) & $sInsertString
Next
$sResult = StringLeft($sResult, 17)
MsgBox(0, "", $sResult)

I'm sure some RegExp gurus will chime in with a one-liner :)

and again...

local $aTmp = stringsplit($str,'',2), $out
for $1 = 0 to ubound($aTmp) - 1
    $out &= ( mod($1,2) ? $aTmp[$1] & ':' : $aTmp[$1])
Next

if stringright($out,1) = ':' then $out = stringtrimright($out,1)

ConsoleWrite($out & @CRLF)

Another way, a variant on kylomas' solution but with a positive lookahead assertion. Can't top mikell's solution in terms of leetness though.

$x = StringRegExpReplace($str, "(..)(?=.)", "$1:")
