Title text match with spaces

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am trying to rebuild an old single signon script that has been giving us a bit of trouble lately.  I didn't write it and it was written in another script language.  If the target program is already open it will have the current user's last name as part of the window text, which I am trying to compare against the user name to see if I should just WinActivate or Process Close and start the program over.  I will be provided the username like "jones", or "smith" and the title check works fine for last names (with no spaces), but if the last name DOES contains spaces, say "Nom De Plume", then all I will be given as a username is "nomdeplume".  Is there any way (via a regex maybe) that I can still check the text on the screen and somehow ?  I have been reading about the Advanced (4) mode of WinTitleMatchMode, but it is over my head.  Any help is appreciated.  Here is a small reproducer script:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -1)

WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10)
Send ("Smith" & @CRLF & "Jones" & @CRLF & "Nom De Plume" & @CRLF)

If WinExists("[CLASS:Notepad]", "jones") Then
    MsgBox(0,"FOUND","Found Jones")

If WinExists("[CLASS:Notepad]", "nomdeplume") Then
    MsgBox(0,"FOUND","Found Nom De Plume")

Well, I have something now that certainly seems to work, I'll start testing and see how this holds up; still interested if anyone has any better solutions.

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -1)

WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10)
Send ("Smith" & @CRLF & "Jones" & @CRLF & "Nom De Plume" & @CRLF)

$WinText = StringStripWS(WinGetText("[CLASS:Notepad]"),8)

If StringInStr($WinText, "jones") <> 0 Then
    MsgBox(0,"FOUND","Found jones")

If StringInStr($WinText, "nomdeplume") <> 0 Then
    MsgBox(0,"FOUND","Found Nom De Plume")

      Regex question
      By rcmaehl
      Currently I have
      Switch StringLen($Serial) Case 0 Return "Please Enter a Serial #" Case 1 To 6 Return "UNKNOWN or INCORRECT" Case 7 Select Case StringLeft($Serial, 2) = "79" $Valid = "Device 1" Case StringLeft($Serial, 3) = "350" $Valid = "Device 2" Case StringRegExp($Serial, "72[HR](.*)") ; Match 72H and 72R $Valid = "Device 3" Case Else $Valid = "UNKNOWN or INCORRECT" EndSelect Case 8 Select Case StringRegExp($Serial, "\d[A-Z](.*)") ; Match a Digit (0-9), then a letter $Valid = "Device 4 short format" Case Else $Valid = "UNKNOWN or INCORRECT" EndSelect EndSwitch Which I'm using to match a number followed by a letter then any number of digits up to a string length of 8 characters.
      However I don't want it to match strings such as 1234A123 only 1D123456
      Is there anyway to do this using a flag or am I limited to having to use StringLeft()?

      add/remove from txt file inside GUI
      By david1337
      Hey guys
      I need help to get further with this script
      Test.txt contains lines like this:
      I have managed to view the content of a txt file in the left side of a GUI like this:
      #Include <File.au3> #include <GUIConstants.au3> Global $file = FileRead("Test.txt") GUICreate("", 800, 800, 192, 124) $control = GUICtrlCreateEdit($file, 0, 0, 400, 800, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL + $ES_READONLY) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "@Arial Unicode MS") GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF) GUICtrlSetState($control, $GUI_FOCUS) ;Makes sure that text is not highlighted by default GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd  
      Okay so is it possible to make each line become a clickable item?
      Say I want to delete Line2, then I highlight it and click a "remove" button.
      Also an "add" button would be needed to add new lines
      On Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE the changes should be saved to Test.txt (Or with a save button)
      Is this possible?
      I hope you can help me :-)

      Regex date
      By Chiitus
      Hello guys, i have a problem in this regex because its not groupping right.
      (\d{1,2}\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{1,2}(\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{2,4})?) It checks for day or dayday, month or monthmonth, yearyear or yearyearyear+year.
      separated with or without space and the characters "\/.-"
      But, a problem! I tried to regex the date with or without the "separator + year" Eg: 05/05 or 05/05/05, but when i have 05/05/05, regex are separating 05/05 and /05
      Iam using group "()" wrong?
      Need help here
      Thx adv!
      Script used: (from
      #include <Array.au3> Local $sString = ClipGet() ; Extract the delimiters $aDelim = StringRegExp($sString, '(\d{1,2}\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{1,2}(\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{2,4})?)', 3) ; Split the string on the delimiters $aParts = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($sString, '(\d{1,2}\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{1,2}(\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{2,4})?)', "$<SEPARATOR>$"), "$<SEPARATOR>$", 3) ; Add the delimter to the start of the part For $i = 0 To UBound($aParts) - 1 ;$aParts[$i + 1] = $aDelim[$i] & $aParts[$i + 1] Next ; Set the count $aParts[0] = UBound($aParts) ; Display the result _ArrayDisplay($aParts) _ArrayDisplay($aDelim) Results in array: (the array parts in all string is ok; but the string delimitator himself is getting separated in every string that have year together)

      String used as test:

      Error When running complied Script
      By Ambient
      Okay guys, I have written a script which essentially runs once a week to copy files to a server. It also copies the files to a local directory. When I run in Autoit it works perfectly. When I compile and run I get the attached error. Any help would be appreciated. How should I debug this? I am not a programmer by the way but  love Autoit as it has done so much for me.

      Select string of text between quotes
      By wzc0014
      I am interested in looking at a chunk of text, selecting the string that is in quotes, and copying it to the clipboard. It will always have quotes at the beginning and end, start with https:// and will always contain .mp3 . But everything else is pretty random. This is an example of a piece of text
      I tried doing something like this but it didn't like the quotes. 
      $sStart = "file: "" $sEnd = ""," $aExtract = _StringBetween($sStart, $sEnd) ClipPut($aExtract)  
      Or is there a better/easier way to do this?
