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)
    Else
        Logging("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...")
        Exit
    EndIf
 EndFunc
 
 
Func FileNameOnly($sFilePath)
    Local $sDrive = "", $sDir = "", $sFileName = "", $sExtension = ""
    Local $aPathSplit = _PathSplit($sFilePath, $sDrive, $sDir, $sFileName, $sExtension)
    ;_ArrayDisplay($aPathSplit, "_PathSplit of " & @ScriptFullPath)
    return $sFileName
EndFunc

      Hello Everyone,
      I am very green when it comes to AutoIT, I have recently started using it to automate a job that i perform using MS Excel and that is working great. Recently I have been faced with a challenge I which i need to copy a specific set of lines from one .txt file and past them, overwriting a specific set of lines in a different .txt file. I honestly have no clue how I can copy the specified lines and transfer them. What functions / commands could I use and how could I lay them out I AutoIT? Any and all help will be appreciated. 
      Thanks!

      Hello
      if I have a string like in the example below,
      is there a regular expression that can surround any "string" (and only strings) within quotes?.
      The whole input string is a "constructor" to populate an array so even if an element contains more words (a phrase) it should be considered as a single word (Elton John should be considered a single word and as that quoted as "Elton John")
      for example
      the following string
      [[Elton John,Peter,Sally,123],[1 one 1,2,3,4 four 4]] should be transformed to this other string
      [["Elton John","Peter","Sally",123],["1 one 1",2,3,"4 four 4"]] Thanks for your help
      Here a small script to use as "guinea pig"
      #include <Array.au3> Local $aArray = [["Elton John", "Peter", "Sally", 123],["one 1", 2, 3, "4 four 4"]] MsgBox(0, "Result", _Array2Json($aArray)) Func _Array2Json($aArray) If (Not IsArray($aArray)) Or (UBound($aArray, 0) > 2) Then Return SetError(1, 0, '') Local $sOpening, $sClosing If UBound($aArray, 0) = 1 Then $sOpening = '[' $sClosing = ']' Else $sOpening = '[[' $sClosing = ']]' EndIf $sOutpt = $sOpening & _ArrayToString($aArray, ",", -1, -1, "],[") & $sClosing ; $sOutpt = ???? how to quote strings ???? Return $sOutpt EndFunc ;==>_Array2Json

      Inspired by PHP's preg_split.
      Split string by a regular expression.
      Also supports the same flags as the PHP equivalent.
      v1.0.1
       
      Example:
      #include "StringRegExpSplit.au3" StringRegExpSplit('splitCamelCaseWords', '(?<=\w)(?=[A-Z])') ; ['split', 'Camel', 'Case', 'Words']
