StringRegExpReplace question

4 posts in this topic

I have a folder structure with variable depth. For ex,

C:\folder1\folder2\folder3\test.txt

C:\folder1\testTwo.txt

C:\folder1\folder2\somefiletest.txt

 

I have a need to get rid of the *.txt file from this folder path. So for example, for above paths, I want to see following,

C:\folder1\folder2\folder3\

C:\folder1\

C:\folder1\folder2\

 

How do I write AutoIt script to do this? I am pretty new to AutoIt and not good with RegEx at all. Please help me out, thank you

usustarr,

Is this what you are looking for?

#include <array.au3>

local $aFiles = [ _
    'C:\folder1\folder2\folder3\test.txt', _
    'C:\folder1\testTwo.txt', _
    'C:\folder1\folder2\somefiletest.txt']

_arraydisplay($aFiles)

for $i = 0 to ubound($aFiles) - 1
    $aFiles[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($aFiles[$i],'(.*\\).*','$1')
Next

_arraydisplay($aFiles)

And the whole "don't use regex unless you have too" rule.

Here is a alternative.

#include <array.au3>

local $aFiles = [ _
    'C:\folder1\folder2\folder3\test.txt', _
    'C:\folder1\testTwo.txt', _
    'C:\folder1\folder2\somefiletest.txt']

_arraydisplay($aFiles)

for $i = 0 to ubound($aFiles) - 1
$iPos = StringInStr($aFiles[$i], "\", 0, -1)
$aFiles[$i] = StringLeft($aFiles[$i], $iPos)
Next

_arraydisplay($aFiles)

 

As for your list of files, I am unsure if you have them already, but I assume no.  So something like FileListToArrayRec() with a *.txt filter would work.  Then you would want to clean out the duplicates.

      Ok so im using this program. clarify for school. I would like to have a program that takes every word i type in microsoft word and searches on it in claryfi. is this possible. I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
