Searching for a string

4 posts in this topic

Hello guys,

So I was trying to pull out the information from a web page. I manage to get the whole information on text, what I want to do is to find a string then once the program finds the string, it'll then print out the first 5 letters after that string. Any ideas with this? This is my code so far, I was able to put out the string to check, what I want to do is print out the first five letters after that. Thanks in advance.

$webBrowser = _IECreate("http://google.com", 0, 0, 1)
Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($webBrowser)
$iPosition = StringInStr("" & $sText & "", "Google.com.ph")
$sString = StringMid("" & $sText & "", $iPosition, 13)
MsgBox(0, "Test", $sString)

Try:

$webBrowser = _IECreate("http://google.com", 0, 0, 1)
$sText = _IEBodyReadText($webBrowser)
$sSearchfor = "google.com.ph" ; Edit this
$iLength = StringLen($sSearchfor) ; Don't edit this

$iPosition = StringInStr($sText, $sSearchfor)
$sString = StringMid("" & $sText & "", $iPosition + $ilength, 5)
MsgBox(0, "Test", $sString)

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

That's it. Thanks, bro. :)

      I hope my title is good enough.
      I'm using the ADO UDF and I have question regarding editing SQL records with this UDF.
      The owner of the UDF suggested an idea, but maybe there is another trix.

      I have a SQL db. I would like to view the content in a control. Like a table. The control should have the option to show every 2nd line in another color. When you pick a "cell" it should pick the whole row. When you dobbelt click on the row another windows should popup with the content from the row.
      What view control can do that?

      I am trying to automate the windows GUI application, in the main window of this application i have one gridview control in it, and when you click on the any row of the gridview separate windows will be opened based on the selection of the row. 
      we have our existing framework implemented using the core java,  i have used AutoITX4java.jar file to automate the above application. and controlCommandListView options used to click on grid view row item. nothing is working. 
      my question is AutoIT can be used/called directly from java file??? instead of using the AutoITX4java.jar file???
      AutoIT supports GridView automation??? like gridview count and gridivew row item click event automation ect...????
      Any help would be really appricate!!
      Thanks
