How to use regular expression on Window text

Recommended Posts

I am trying to identify the window based on the window title and text.

The title will be the "erwin DM - filename"

It is working till date, but some operating systems our application is displaying window as "erwin DM - [filename]"

I tried  "erwin DM - *filename*" But this regular expression is not working.
Any suggestion?


$sModelFile = "C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\My Models\eMovies.erwin"
$wdModel = _WinWaitActivate1("erwin DM - "&FileNameOnly($sModelFile),"")

Func _WinWaitActivate1($title,$text,$timeout=0);Will Return the window Handler
    Logging("Waiting for "&$title&":"&$text)
    $dHandle = WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
    if not ($dHandle = 0) then
        If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
        return WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
        Logging("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...")
Func FileNameOnly($sFilePath)
    Local $sDrive = "", $sDir = "", $sFileName = "", $sExtension = ""
    Local $aPathSplit = _PathSplit($sFilePath, $sDrive, $sDir, $sFileName, $sExtension)
    ;_ArrayDisplay($aPathSplit, "_PathSplit of " & @ScriptFullPath)
    return $sFileName

      This tiny yet powerful UDF will help you to convert Images to text with the help of  OCRSpace API version 3.50 .
      Detect text from a local file.

      hello guys, please i need your help
      am trying to work with CreateWindowEx api, i created the window with it controls, also i setup the call back function
      i'am using WinMSGLoop to focus with the keyboard.
      here i have a problem, i hope that you can help me.
      on the controls i used the UDF that comme with the autoit, such as _GUIButton_Create, _GUIListBox_Create....
      but i can't find a STATIC control UDF, for that i used this

      local $h_ssrvlbl = _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx(0, "STATIC", "الخادم", BitOr($WS_VISIBLE, $WS_CHILD, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN), 250, 10, 100, 20, $hWnd)
      as you can see here, there is an arabic text, so here is the problem, the arabic text isn't show normally, what is the problem here?
      also i have  an other question about keyboard focus, when i used WinMSGLoop, it worked, but if i press alt+tab to switch windows or focus an other window and return back to my window, the focus of control is kill.
      can any one help me to solve that please?
      my code will be as file here with the include files
      i hope can any one help me here
      thanks in advance

      This is a program that I made to help my self learn better regular expressions.
      There are a lot of other programs/website with the similar functions.
      The main advantage of this program is that you don't have to click a button after every changes.
      The program detected changes and react on it.
      Match Match of arrays Match and replace Load source data from website Load source data from a website with GET/POST Load text data from file Clear fields Export and Import settings (you can finish the expression a other time, just export/import it) Cheat sheet DPI aware Generate AutoIt code example code The source code is not difficult and I think most user will understand it.
      In the zip file there is a export files (reg back example), you can drag and drop this files on the gui to import it.
      EDIT: Updated to version V1.2.0
      Changes are:
      Expand and collapse of the cheat sheet (Thanks to Melba23 for the Guiextender UDF) Usefull regular expressions websites links included in the program Text data update time EDIT: Updated to version V1.3.0
      Changes are:
       Automatic generate AutoIt code  Icons on the tab  Few minor bug fixes EDIT: Updated to version V1.4.0
      Changes are:
      Link to AutoIt regex helpfile If the regular expression has a error than the text becomes red Option Offset with Match and array of Matches Option Count with Match and replace Some small minor bug fixed EDIT: Updated to version V1.4.1
      Changes are:
      Small bug in "create AutoIt" code fixed EDIT: Updated to version V1.4.2
      Changes are:
      Small bug in "create AutoIt" code fixed Bug with website data  fixed  EDIT: Updated to version V1.4.3
      Changes are:

      Hi all,
      is there a regular expression pattern that can be used to remove part of a string based on the position of the substring, that is, by specifying the start and end characters of the block to remove? thus obtaining a new string without the "piece" indicated.
      for example:
      Global $sString = "Today I do not feel good" ; chars: 000000000111111111122222 ; 123456789012345678901234 ; remove a chunk from char 9 to char 15 MsgBox(0, '', _StringTrimMid($sString, 9, 15)) ; Returns the string trimmed by characters from $iStartCut to $iEndCut. Func _StringTrimMid($sInput, $iStartCut, $iEndCut) Return StringLeft($sInput, $iStartCut - 1) & StringMid($sInput, $iEndCut + 1) ; can be done the same with a RegExp ?? EndFunc ;==>_StringTrimMid

      hello evrybody
      here is an example about how to split your texts using a delimiter with the ability to select how much of delimiters shows in each colum  with $i_number
      you have a long text and you want to split it in an array
      that evry colum have a number (n) of lines
      i made a function that do that for you
      just call it with a three params
      your text
      the number that you want to put in each col
      the siparator
      default is "|"
      here is the function with example
      i hope that it will be useful for you
      #include <Array.au3> $s_txt = "some text1some text2|some text3|some text4|some text5|some text6" $array = splitText($s_txt, 2) _ArrayDisplay($array) Func splitText($s_text, $i_number, $s_siparator = "|") Local $a_TXT = StringSplit($s_text, $s_siparator) Local $a_Return[$a_TXT[0] + 1] If ($a_TXT[0] <= $i_number) Or ($i_number <= 0) Then ReDim $a_Return[2] $a_Return[0] = 1 $a_Return[1] = $s_text Return $a_Return EndIf Local $i_Processed = 1, $i_arrayProcessed = 1 Do For $i = $i_Processed To ($i_Processed + $i_number) - 1 If ($a_TXT[0] < $i) Then ExitLoop If Not ($a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed]) Then $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] = $a_TXT[$i] Else $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] &= $s_siparator & $a_TXT[$i] EndIf $i_Processed += 1 Next $i_arrayProcessed += 1 Until ($a_TXT[0] < $i_Processed) ReDim $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] $a_Return[0] = $i_arrayProcessed - 1 Return $a_Return EndFunc ;==>splitText
      accept my greetings
      thanks to
      for his notes
