StringRegExp makes no sense :|

Recommended Posts

How do I remove everything before and after the token B6LdPUAgg14..?

Token: 

{"token":"B6LdPUAgg14..","expires":15081,"ssl":true}

I can see how you can remove a single words but how do i remove whole parts before and after the token string?

$token = StringRegExpReplace($sData, "(?im)Token", _
    "")

I'm trying to reference this crazy page :sweating:

https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/StringRegExp.htm

aa2zz6,

Or you could use something like this:

$sOriginal = '{"token":"B6LdPUAgg14..","expires":15081,"ssl":true}'

$sExtract = StringRegExpReplace($sOriginal, '^(.*":")(.*)(\.\.".*)$', "$2")

ConsoleWrite($sExtract & @CRLF)
^           - start at the beginning of the string
(.*":")     - capture all characters up to ":" (Group 1)
(.*)        - capture all characters (Group 2) until
(\.\.".*)   - we find and capture all characters (Group 3) beginning .." and which ends
$           - at the end of the string

$2          - return only the Group 2

jchd,

Do not take it to heart - I think it is the best short RegEx reference page I have ever seen. And it is a constant help when I find my brain bleeding - as it always does when dealing with complex RegExes.

I know Melba, it was just for the joke, not the choke.

When I try to understand regexp i feel like my brain wants to stop :sweating: Is that normal starting out? I've been using this method more often in my recent projects and I see the value in it. I will surely read your tutorials and hopefully try to further understand this method :)

if it is always between the 3rd and 4th quotes

$str = '{"token":"B6LdPUAgg14..","expires":15081,"ssl":true}'

consolewrite(stringmid($str , StringInStr($str , '"' , 0 , 3) + 1 , StringInStr($str , '"' , 0 , 4) - StringInStr($str , '"' , 0 , 3) - 1))

and another that gets the thing after token, sans regex

$str = '{"token":"B6LdPUAgg14..","expires":15081,"ssl":true}'

consolewrite(stringleft(stringsplit($str, '"token":"' , 3)[1] , stringinstr(stringsplit($str, '"token":"' , 3)[1] , '"' , 1) - 1))
