I have a text file as

 

[start]

This is a test

[/start]

 

 

 

How do I implement the fileread to read after [start] and before [/start]? I have not try it because I don't know where to begin with this.

StringRegExp* or _StringBetween are your friends. :)

Please provide a more specific text file to adapt a solution.

I have some exam question/answers and are not allow to post or share... I'm just creating a question/answer problems for my own practice instead of wasting paper to print out. So it would look something like this:

 

[Question1]

Name: Q

Salary: $40 hourly / Bi Weekly

Status: Single

Debt: $250,000


Question 1: Will Q manage to afford a million dollar house?

[/Question1]

[Answer1]

A1=No

A2=Yes

A3=None of the above

[/Answer1]

 

 

Because there are return spaces, iniread is no longer a choice for me.

You mean something like this here?

$sFileread =    "[Question1]" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Name: Q" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Salary: $40 hourly / Bi Weekly" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Status: Single" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Debt: $250,000" & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Question 1: Will Q manage to afford a million dollar house?" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "[/Question1]" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "[Answer1]" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "A1=No" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "A2=Yes" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "A3=None of the above" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "[/Answer1]"

ConsoleWrite(StringRegExpReplace($sFileread, "[^\S]*[\[.*\]].*", "") & @CRLF)

I was hoping for something easier like read anything below [Question1] and stop reading before [/Question1] like so.

 

So the outcome should spit only

 

Name: Q

Salary: $40 hourly / Bi Weekly

Status: Single

Debt: $250,000


Question 1: Will Q manage to afford a million dollar house?

 

onto an editbox.

You could use this concept to build the needed func   :)

$sFileread =    "[Question1]" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Name: Q" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Salary: $40 hourly / Bi Weekly" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Status: Single" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Debt: $250,000" & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "Question 1: Will Q manage to afford a million dollar house?" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "[/Question1]" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "[Answer1]" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "A1=No" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "A2=Yes" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "A3=None of the above" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                "[/Answer1]"

$var1 = "Question1"

$res = StringStripWS(StringRegExp($sFileread, '\[' & $var1 & '\]\R+([^[]+)', 3)[0], 4)
Msgbox(0, $var1, $res)

$var2 = "Answer1"

$res = StringStripWS(StringRegExp($sFileread, '\[' & $var2 & '\]\R+([^[]+)', 3)[0], 4)
Msgbox(0, $var2, $res)
