StringSplit should do the trick if there is only the single "#" character in the string.


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Or maybe ... a  Str******xpReplace ?  :D


$str = "49f039.201185f201k2#3152hr.3939532.500"

; an usual one
; $res = StringRegExpReplace($str, '^(.*?#)', "")

; a funny one
$res = StringRegExpReplace($str, '\G.(?<!#.)', "")

Msgbox(0,"", $res)

StringSplit() would be my first idea also. 

$sTest = "49f039.201185f201k2#3152hr.3939532.500"
$aSplit = StringSplit($sTest, "#")
MsgBox(0, "", $aSplit[$aSplit[0]])

Here with either the ^ or the \G anchors it was useless  :P
