Get filename from array recurrence

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm trying to get a listview of some filenames, but i can't extract the filenames from paths in an array. I need the filenames alone, without the extension.

The paths are like C:\...\...\filename.txt.

I've tried using stringregexp, stringinstr, etc., but it seems a bit complicated.

Here's what i got so far (that retrieves only a blank list):

Func Example()
    Local $hTimer = TimerInit()
    Local $aArray = _FindInFile('2016', @ScriptDir, '*.txt')
    ConsoleWrite(Ceiling(TimerDiff($hTimer) / 1000) & ' second(s)' & @CRLF)


$listviewB = GUICtrlCreateListView("     Atualizado", 166, 5, 156, 390)

For $INDEX = 1 To $aArray[0]
    $POINT = StringRegExp($aArray[$INDEX], "^.*\\(.*)$", 1)
    If $POINT <> 0 Then
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem(StringLeft($aArray[$INDEX],$POINT-1),$ListViewB)
    EndIf
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(_GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($ListviewB), 166, 400, 36, 17)
Next

Can anyone help me out please?

telmob,

This is how I get the filename from a path:

Local $sFile = "C:\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.chm"

; File name w/o ext -                                Example returns     "AutoIt3"
Local $sFilenameExExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\\|\..*$", "")

ConsoleWrite($sFilenameExExt & @CRLF)

Thank you Melba. That works perfect for one file. But in the array, i only get blank lines.

If i use the following, i can remove the extension, but to get the filename backword is a tad difficult for me :)

StringInStr($aArray[$INDEX],".",0,-1)

telmob,

How about posting the content of a representative array so that we can test on some of the real data - that way we should be able to see where the problem lies.

Oh, sorry.

This part of the script i got from a post here in the forum. Can't remember where exactly.

The @ScriptFolder has a few txt files, and it searches for the word '2016' in the files.

 

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Func MakeList()
    Local $aArray = _FindInFile('2016', @ScriptDir, '*.txt')
    $listviewB = GUICtrlCreateListView("     Atualizado", 166, 5, 156, 390)

For $INDEX = 1 To $aArray[0]
    $POINT = StringInStr($aArray[$INDEX],".",0,-1)
    If $POINT <> 0 Then
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem(StringLeft($aArray[$INDEX],$POINT-1),$ListViewB)

telmob,

This works fine for me:

Func MakeList()
    Local $aArray = _FindInFile('2016', @ScriptDir, '*.txt')
    $listviewB = GUICtrlCreateListView("     Atualizado", 166, 5, 156, 390)
    For $INDEX = 1 To $aArray[0]
        $sFileName = StringRegExpReplace($aArray[$INDEX], "^.*\\|\..*$", "")
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($sFileName, $listviewB)
    Next
    $Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(_GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($listviewB), 166, 400, 36, 17)
EndFunc   ;==>MakeList

Well... that looks good :)

I noticed it doesn't work if i have file names like 'name.name.txt', as it cuts out the whole '.name.txt', but i managed to fix it with a stringtrimright (newbie of me, i know) I really need to spend some time understanding regex.

Thank you so much Melba!
