Extract "never the same" string from filename

Recommended Posts

31290

Hi everyone :)

Hope you're doing great today. ;)

Well, I have a little question about extracting a certain string from a file name to make comparison after treatment.

Let's get into the details:

First of all, I gather and store a machine BIOS Version by running this:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "wmic bios get SMBIOSBIOSVERSION >> C:\Drivers\Tag.txt" & @CRLF, "", @SW_HIDE, "$STDOUT_CHILD")
_FileWriteToLine("c:\Drivers\BIOS_Version.txt", 1, "", 1)
$sContent = FileRead ("C:\Drivers\BIOS_Version.txt")
$sContent = StringRegExpReplace($sContent, " ", "")

Result is, for example, A10

Then, I download the latest available BIOS version from the Dell related model website and the filename of the latest BIOS is stored in a $sBIOSName variable.

Result is for example, E5440A14.exe

What i can't figure out is how to extract the Bios name stored in the $sBIOSName knowing that each model this app would run won't have the same number of chars.
Indeed, I have some OPL790AXX.exe / OPL7010AXX.exe / E5470AXX.exe etc...

I imagine something like getting the whole string, left trimming it to the first A found count 2 chars on the right and store them to have the possibility to make the check between A10 and A14 (as the number of char of filenames is never the same)

Hope this is clear :) If not, don't hesitate to ask for more.
Thanks in advance for the help :)

Use StringInStr to get the position of the first "A" and then use this as starting position for your calculation.

Hi Water :)

Thanks for the reply.

Indeed, I just found this way to do so:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "wmic bios get SMBIOSBIOSVERSION >> C:\Drivers\Tag.txt" & @CRLF, "", @SW_HIDE, "$STDOUT_CHILD")
_FileWriteToLine("c:\Drivers\BIOS_Version.txt", 1, "", 1)
$sContent = FileRead ("C:\Drivers\BIOS_Version.txt")
$sContent = StringRegExpReplace($sContent, " ", "")
$sMidBIOSNAME = StringInStr ($sBIOSName, "A")
$sFinalBIOSNAME = StringMid($sBIOSName, $sMidBIOSNAME, 3)
msgbox (0, "", $sFinalBIOSNAME)

I got the expected result. 

Do you think this can be optimized / shortened or not? (just curious ^^)

RegExp's are most of the time shorter than regular AutoIt functions. But don't forget to add comments so you still know what the RegExp does in a few months.

I know it's not the question, but you should get the BIOS version directly from the registry :

Func _BiosVersion()
    Return RegRead("HKLM\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\BIOS", "BIOSVersion")
EndFunc

Hello. Just for fun.

 

$str = "   OPL790A12.exe   "
Msgbox(0,"",StringMid($str,StringInStr($str,".exe")-3,3))

Or use "Scriptomatic" to generate the WMI query for you. It assigns the result to an variable or array.

Script get the version wrong syntax:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "wmic bios get SMBIOSBIOSVERSION >> C:\Drivers\Tag.txt" & @CRLF, "", @SW_HIDE, "$STDOUT_CHILD")

TO:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "wmic bios get SMBIOSBIOSVERSION" & @CRLF, "", @SW_HIDE, $STDOUT_CHILD)
;::OR
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "wmic bios get SMBIOSBIOSVERSION >> C:\Drivers\Tag.txt" & @CRLF, "", @SW_HIDE, $STDOUT_CHILD)

and something useful:

Local $iPID = Run('"' & @ComSpec & '" /c ' & 'wmic bios get SMBIOSBIOSVERSION', '', @SW_HIDE, 0x2) ;$STDOUT_CHILD (0x2)

      Hi, I have the following line in a text file 'input.txt'. I know the line number - say '6'. I wish to replace the text 'WWW' in the below line with a random number (I can generate that with random()).
      WERIS  WWWJP   3.83  8.330  1.000                1097.RAXX 
      The WWW is a 3 digit integer (could be any number between 0 to 999), I can use stringtrimleft and get the numerical value of WWW in this file
      so, basically, I know the string to replace (ie; WWW stored in a variable), I know the line number to work on and the file location/name and the replacement variable (through random()). My requirement is to fill that 3 spaces with my random number (which Is a integer between 1 and 999)
      please put ur suggestions

      Hello Members of this best Forum
      i have a question please
      for example if i have a long string
      and i want to extract a text between two tag
      what i can do to make that?
      note :
      i know that there is a
      StringRegExp function
      it's do that work
      but it result is be as an array
      i want the result to be a string
      is there any function on autoit can do that?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello!
       
      I wrote myself a script to follow Google Maps Polyline encoding steps: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/utilities/polylinealgorithm, and that works (although I think that it's a bit janky), but now I'm having issues getting the output.
       
      When I run the script, all the points come out correctly in the console, and even when they're the only things that I log, it displays them fine. However, I'm adding each point into a variable to return all of them at once at the end, fully formatted, and it's only taking the very first point. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, as it seems fine.
       
      When run with the default value, it should output this at the end: Custom Polygon: _p~iF~ps|U_ulLnnqC_mqNvxq`@
      But instead I'm just getting this: Custom Polygon: _p~iF
       
      I know that it's reaching the string combination lines because it's logging the data before it (and even if a put log AFTER the $sPolygon &= $aPoints[0], it's logged fine).
       
      Here's my full code (problem is lines ~209 - 234, search "$sPolygon &= $aPoints[1]"):

      I've tried:
      $sPolygon &= $aPoints[0] & $aPoints[1] ;---- $sPolygon = $sPolygon & $aPoints[0] & $aPoints[1] ;---- $sPolygon = $sPolygon & String($aPoints[0] & $aPoints[1]) ;---- $sPolygon = String($sPolygon) & String($aPoints[0]) & String($aPoints[1]) ;---- $sPolygon &= $aPoints[1] $sPolygon &= $aPoints[0] ;----  
      I'm sure it's something basic that I'm overlooking, but I don't understand why it's not combining the strings. 
      Also, unrelated, why doesn't $LogFile = FileOpen($File, 9) create the directory/ file if they don't exist? 9 should be $FO_CREATEPATH (8) + $FO_APPEND (1)?
      Thanks!

      This is another take on string triggers, triggers on specific strings.
      Able to simple text pasting,
      opening links (as long as there's a www. http:\\ or https:\\ at the beggining)
      and is able to open applications.
      The user selects the modifier key, and then uses a combination of that key with a couple others to perform tasks like
      screenshot the active window, (modkey + prtscr), turn off the screen (modkey + pause / break),
      open clipboard string in registry (modkey + R), change system volume (modkey + arrouw up/dn).
      The following keys pressed at the same time prompt for shutdown: S+D+T
      The following keys pressed at the same time prompt for restart: S+R+T
      Middle mouse button click on titlebar minimizes to tray, or a left mouse button click in the icon in the tray also minimizes.
      Trigger is set off by space or enter, and timeouts after 3 seconds.
      Shows your external, lan, and gateway ip's, can refresh with right mouse click, and opens the default browser if the correspondent button is pressed.
      Able to change system volume by a set percentage, reading from the inputbox the number the user sets, if 0 or empty uses system default.
      I made this because the existing string trigger applications didn't do it for me for a number of reasons.
      I did this for me, but if someone finds it useful all the better.
