StringRegExpReplace question

Recommended Posts

usustarr

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.

      Cambiar a español Hello friends, I need help with a problem I have, I want to know if there is any way to update a GUI already running, that is I have a GUI of a certain size and with a button I would like to enlarge it:
      example: $ form1 = GUICreate ("", 200,100,0,0)   When you press the button, the gui increases its size, and actuates the new size.
