Hello good friends of Autoit, so I am making a chatbot using Autoit but I got stuck on this part:

I already have stringright($var,stringlen($var) - stringlen(" = ") - StringInStr($var," = ") + 1) the program is made to read a text file and extract from a specific line the text after = and before =, for example:

example line of text file: something = okay this is a text

and I needed to extract the right part (which I already have done) and the left part (which I need help with) so how can you make stringleft to get all text before "="?

Thanks in advance.

Here's my code if you need it:

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>

Global $BrainLocation = @ScriptDir & "\brain.txt"
Global $FormName = "Project Lisa"
Global $ReatInput = "null"
Global $Memory[100]
Global $BrainLineCount = 1
Global $Random[100]
Global $RandomCount = 0
Global $SplitInput[100]
Global $BrainCount = 0

Loader()

Func Loader()

    Global $Form = GUICreate($FormName, 417, 279, 192, 124)
    Global $Output = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 8, 8, 401, 225, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_WANTRETURN,$WS_HSCROLL),0)
    Global $Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 104, 240, 209, 21)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    ControlFocus($FormName,"",$input)
    HotKeySet("{ENTER}","SendText")

    Main()

EndFunc

func Main()

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

EndFunc


Func SendText()

    $ReatInput = GUICtrlRead($Input)
    GUICtrlSetData($Output,@CRLF & "You > " & $ReatInput,1)

    CreateRandoms()

EndFunc

Func CreateRandoms()

    While $RandomCount <> 100
        $Random[$RandomCount] = Random(1,$RandomCount,1)
        $RandomCount += 1
    WEnd
    $RandomCount = 0

    BrainLoader()

EndFunc

Func BrainLoader()

    $ReatBrain = FileReadLine($Brainlocation,$BrainLineCount)
    $BrainStringRight = stringright($ReatBrain,stringlen($ReatBrain) - stringlen(" = ") - StringInStr($ReatBrain," = ") + 1)
    MsgBox(0,"",$Brainstringright)
    $BrainStringLenRight = Stringlen($brainstringright)
    MsgBox(0,"",$Brainstringright)
    $BrainActualString = 0 + $BrainStringLenRight - 10
    MsgBox(0,"",$BrainActualString)
    $test = StringLeft($ReatBrain,$brainactualstring)
    MsgBox(0,"",$test)
    $BrainSplitedStrings = StringSplit($BrainStringRight,",")

    If $BrainSplitedStrings[1] <> "" Then
        $_1 = "true"
        $BrainCount += 1
    EndIf

    If $ReatInput = $BrainActualString Then
        $BrainRan = Random(1,$braincount)
        GUICtrlSetData($output,@CRLF & "Lisa > " & $BrainSplitedStrings[$BrainRan],1)
        $BrainLineCount = 1
        Main()
    Else
        main()
    EndIf
    $BrainLineCount += 1
    BrainLoader()

EndFunc

if you need both parts of the text, why don't you just use stringsplit?

$text = "some = text"
$Split = StringSplit($text,"=")
ConsoleWrite($Split[1]) ;Some
ConsoleWrite(@CR)
ConsoleWrite($Split[2]) ;Text

Many Thanks

You might wanna look at my StringTrimRightUntil & StringTrimLeftUntil functions here

They are more efficient & simple! TD :D

Sorry that didn't work out... I need the opposite ( the left version ) of this one : stringright($var,stringlen($var) - stringlen(" = ") - StringInStr($var," = ") + 1)

I need to stringleft after/before a specific character(s) for example in the one above is after =, the one I need should be Get all text BEFORE =.

anyone? thanks in advance :)

StringSplit all the way my friend, Even if it's just for ease of reading when you come back to a code a few months later (it's amazing how a solution to a problem you face can seem innovative at the time, But then Jargon when you come back to the code.) Even if you're just looking for the left part of the string, StringSplit can accomplish this:

$text = "some = text"
$Left = StringSplit($text,"=")[1] ;Notice the array number
$Right = StringSplit($text,"=")[2] ;These run the stringsplit command, And then return that element to the variable from the resulting array
Consolewrite($Left)
ConsoleWrite(@CR)
ConsoleWrite($Right)

Just a handy little trick I discovered after a while of using AutoIt, The same applies to any commands that return arrays.

Cheers

Also look at the Regular Expressions?

Using a regular expression allows control over optional spaces before and after the equal sign, and having those spaces (if they exist) not appearing in the required 'before and after' text.

$text = "some = text"

; These StringRegExpReplace replaces all text matched with nothing, "".   (Match the characters to be deleted)

$Left = StringRegExpReplace($text, "\h*=.*$", "")
; "\h*"  Match all spaces (if they exist) immediately before "=".   Note:- A space is a character, and can be classified as a horizontal whitespace character.
; "="    Match the equal character.
; ".*$"  Match all characters (if any exist) to the end of the test string (from immediately after "=").

$Right = StringRegExpReplace($text, "^.*=\h*", "")
; "^.*"  Match all characters (if any exist) from the beginning of the test string to immediately before "=".
; "="    Match the equal character.
; "\h*"  Match all spaces (if they exist) immediately after "=".
; See AutoIt help file under StringRegExp for regular expression syntax.

ConsoleWrite("Left:  " & $Left & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("Right: " & $Right & @LF)


@javiwhite
Another handy little trick, if you are writing your scripts in SciTE, is to type in lower case "cw ".  That is, type"cw" followed by a space. This is the SciTE4AutoIt3 abbreviation for "ConsoleWrite(| & @LF) ".  I use it often.  
The complete list of SciTe-AutoIt abbreviations can be found in the SciTe help file > under the "Index" tab  > SciTE4AutoIt3-AbbreviationList.

You have no validation that stringsplit succeeded and risk throwing an exception attempting to access an element that does not exist, so you may want to do a stringinstr to verify an equals sign is present prior to running that.  or just split it once and check for an error then access the elements.

      Hi AutoIT masters,
      Good day! Sorry to have bothered this forum but we really need help. We are working on an automation project that is running on VDI server. The BOTS are in .exe are running fine until AV detected them and deleted the files. The files were re-compiled and AV kept on deleting them. The copy of the .exe BOT deleted were sent to Symantec for whitelisting. After whitelisting, it is no longer deleted but no longer working as designed (showing Line script error). We checked the scripts and there were no issues since we run it using SciTE editor and it performed the desired task. Good thing we found on this thread the solution using .a3x and the BOTS worked fine and no longer deleted. Now, the problem is they are asking why the BOTS won't run in .EXE and what is the reason behind Symantec AV deleting them. We raised a case with Symantec but they cannot provide further information as they are always seeing the file as "False Positive". We even tested with Symantec turned off and those .EXE files are working fine, however, after re-enabling, it got deleted.
      Just seeking help on how to better convince them that it is really Symantec causing the issue and the .a3x file.

      I click "Help" or press F1, there is no response
      If I use the file explorer and double click Autoit.chm or Autoit3.chm help opens.
      There is no dialog to check or uncheck "Always ask before opening this file" when clicking on these files.
       
      If you are curious as to why I dont have the latest version, I am creating a back up laptop that has a VERY extensive automation application that I have written over the past 15 years.
       
      An extremely potent, powerful, needed function has been deleted in the upgrade of Autoit in recent years that I can not do without. If my main laptop dies, which it almost did, I am in a very bad position. So I bought the exact same laptop and I am "cofiguring" it to work exactly the same as my main laptop. However, this one has been "Upgraded" to Win 10 which I hope is not the problem. 
      Thanks for any help

      Hello,
      I have a problem with getting first 10 characters with a big txt file, about 50k lines. I only want 10 characters of each line and save it into another file. I tried to use Stringleft every line and save it into another file but it was really slow to do it. I tried to save it into a variation like $var=$var&stringleft($file,10)&@CRLF. It's faster but still really slow.
      Can anybody help me with this
      Thank you so much

      So basically need to pull text from a .txt file or .sql and use that text to replace something within a different file.
       
      First File:
      jumps
       
      Or:
      Text1 = jumps
      Text2 = fence
      Second File:
      My Dog XXXXX over the YYYYY.
       
       
      After Script:
      My Dog jumps over the fence
       
      I have found a good start, I'm basic programmer at best, I have some experience but this gets out of my wheel house.
       
      Any help is appreciated.
