Searching Regex and define an array

Recommended Posts

I am trying to search in a web browser dates XX/XX/XXXX that are also links. I want to click them after and remove them from the array. This is all I have so far. Nothing shows up. What am I doing wrong?

ControlFocus ("Customer Center", "", "")

Local $aArray = StringRegExp('(..)/(..)/(....)', '(..)/(..)/(....)', $STR_REGEXPARRAYFULLMATCH)
For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "RegExp Test with Option 2 - " & $i, $aArray[$i])
Next

The first parameter needs to be the text to search, not the pattern!

Local $sHtml = ...      ; here grab html text containing dates in format 99/99/9999
Local $aArray = StringRegExp($sHtml, '(\d\d/\d\d/\d\d\d\d)', $STR_REGEXPARRAYFULLMATCH)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

Is there a way to grab the whole text of a webpage? The text im trying to gather is some sort of javascipt applet.

I can't see well at this distance!

Can you post a link?

I don't have recent experience with grabbing html from applets, lots of traps there. Wait until a more experienced users pops in.

Okay I'm stuck on that part though. Do you know how to do an IF statement with IUI? Thats the only parts missing from my script so far. Should I make a new thread with a title specific to my new question?

Never touched IUI, so yes you'd better start a new thread with an more explicit title for that.

      Hello this is the code maybe you can figure it out I placed some comments to try and explain what I want
      #include <Array.au3> AnyDeskOpen() Func AnyDeskOpen() Global $aWinList = WinList("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.*Anydesks*)]") ;get window name and handle from windows and store into an array $asd = $aWinList $aExtract = _ArrayExtract($asd) ; beginner babble clean this Sh** up Global $default = _ArrayToString($aExtract, "", 0, 0) EndFunc StartWait() ; check in the array to see how many windows are opened Func StartWait() While 1 AnyDeskOpen() If $Default = 1 Then Sleep (3500) Else Exitloop EndIf WEnd EndFunc If $default = "2" Then ; If two windows are opened than someone is trying to connect to that computer and needs a click to accept connection try and click accept Button in the first window and the second one by activating diffrent window handle $extra = _ArrayToString($aWinList, "", 1, 1) $sString = StringReplace($extra, "AnyDesk", "") $hGUI = $sString WinActivate(HWnd($hGUI)) winmove (HWnd($hGUI), "", 50, 50) Mouseclick ("left", 100, 500) Sleep (1500) $extra = _ArrayToString($aWinList, "", 2, 2) $sString = StringReplace($extra, "AnyDesk", "") $hGUI = $sString WinActivate(HWnd($hGUI)) winmove (HWnd($hGUI), "", 50, 50) Mouseclick ("left", 100, 500) EndIf While 1 ;up to here everything seems to work AnyDeskOpen() ; while there is a connection there are two AnyDesk windows, if we close the connection than only one window remains opened and we check the array to see how many values it has If $Default = 2 Then Sleep (3500) Else ; At this point the program exits code 0 instead of resseting to function above StartWait() Exitloop EndIf WEnd ; thank you  the intent is to keep the program going so it clicks accept again when reconnecting

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.20 contains 197 functions divided into these topics:
      window, desktop and monitor mouse and GUI GUI controls including graphical buttons (jpg, png) logics and mathematics include constants string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info Change log and files section  on the PAL website (SourceForge).
      A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.

      I'm trying to pass a nested array to a function, such that the function alters the inner array.
      I was surprised to find that this minimal reproducible example, despite its use of ByRef, seems to pass a copy of the inner array to the function:
      #include <Array.au3> ; a boring old array Local $aInnerArray[5] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ; a one-element array containing a reference to the other array Local $aOuterArray[1] = [$aInnerArray] ; intention: take a nested array and alter its inner array ; reality: the inner array seems to be getting copied Func ChangeIt(ByRef $aOuter) Local $aInner = $aOuter[0] $aInner[2] = 0 EndFunc ; Expected: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ; Actual: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ✔ _ArrayDisplay($aInnerArray, 'Before') ; $aOuterArray passed by-ref, should receive reference to $aInnerArray ; Therefore should change $aInnerArray to [1, 2, 0, 4, 5] ChangeIt($aOuterArray) ; Expected: [1, 2, 0, 4, 5] ; Actual: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ✘ _ArrayDisplay($aInnerArray, 'After') I suspect that either:
      the copy is taking place in the first line of the function (I couldn't find a way to access the inner array without first assigning it to a variable though); or ByRef doesn't propagate into inner levels of the data structure being passed, which seems less likely to me. Could someone please point me in the right direction to get this working as intended?
      Update: the answer
      ; WRONG: ; a one-element array containing a reference to the other array Local $aOuterArray[1] = [$aInnerArray] The assumption I made about this code is wrong—it actually copies $aInnerArray into $aOuterArray, so there are now two unrelated $aInnerArray instances.  It is not possible to store arrays in other arrays by reference.
      If it is necessary to refer to a mutable array in multiple places, consider holding it in a global variable.  Where a collection of mutable arrays needs to be accessed in multiple places (as in my case), consider storing them in a global array and referring to each sub-array by index (also known as the Registry pattern).

      Hi all, I wasnt active in this Forum forum for Years. 😅
      Since I need something with Json in AutoIt i write a little UDF to save a variable to file to read it with another language - and back. After a while until my other script grows i thought - lets integrate all variables wich is possible, because i want have arrays to.
      This is my first public UDF in Autoit - normaly my AutoIt scripts are quick an dirty.... - like the examples for this udf. - someone want to write nice examples?
      I tried to write this UDF properly, cared for processing speed, low mem consumption as possible, a short code, and a high usability without beeing very familiar with arrays.
      What is it for? - convert nearly all types of variables to a json string for saving it in a file or to an ini. Read it back in to a same formated variable and preserv variable types. All array types are supported with nested arrays, the only restriction is ram and array/stringsize - and time if the array is very big. You can use Filters for variable types and some other options.
      If anyone found a bug or any suggestions, please post it.
       
      get Json.au3 from here Json.au3
