Searching Regex and define an array

Recommended Posts

milkmoron

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 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.

      Hi,
      I was looking into a way to delete a registry key (not a specific value, an entire key) if it is present. I was considering using RegRead and RegDelete. However, RegRead appears to only read values, not just keys. Is there a way to delete an entire registry key if it is present? I have heard that the below function may help.

      So i have been working on this 2d physics game and added some physics to it but got stuck on this problem that the character ( the cube ) is sliding all the time but it should not do that because of this friction function:
      If $horizontalVelocity > 0 Then If $inAir Then $currFriction = $airFriction $horizontalVelocity -= $currFriction $birbX += $horizontalVelocity EndIf this line "$horizontalVelocity -= $currFriction" should nullify the velocity to 0 but it stays somewhere in 0.09. How do i fix this?
      Here's the game's source code and what i have done so far:
      Now i don't expect you reading my nasty code and understanding what it does but any help would be appreciated.
       
      Edit: I guess the problem is solved, i have updated the source code if anyone needs it.
