StringReplace only undercase area

9 posts in this topic

I have words like

ABCa.AB

DEFb.AB

GHIa.AB

I need to change those to

ABC.A-AB

DEF.B-AB

GHI.A-AB

Right now I manually do it with stringreplace, for example $desiredString = StringReplace($desiredString, "ABCa.AB", "ABC.A-AB")

I was wondering if there was a way to search for all the undercase letters and change it to an uppercase with a "." before it and a "-" after it?  I only have "a" and "b" to look for so maybe just change all "a." to ".A-".   Is there a way to do this?  Thanks for any help as I'm still figuring this scripting out.

;~ $string = "ABCa.AB"
;~ $string = "DEFb.AB"
$string = "GHIa.AB"

$newStr = stringinstr($string , "a.") ? stringreplace($string , "a." , ".A-") : stringreplace($string , "b." , ".B-")

msgbox(0, '' , $newStr)

Oh my student days circa 1975 -

UpLow("c")

Func UpLow ($char)
$Asc = Asc($char)
If $Asc >= 97 And $Asc <= 122 Then
    $Asc = $Asc - 32
    ConsoleWrite($Asc & ' : ' & Chr($Asc) & @CRLF)
ElseIf $Asc >= 65 And $Asc <= 90 Then
    $Asc = $Asc + 32
    ConsoleWrite($Asc & ' : ' & Chr($Asc) & @CRLF)
EndIf
EndFunc

I still use this!
