Regex working on Regex101 not working


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have a very simple Regex which i got tested on Regex101:

 

Data:

Adres: Statenkanaal 11 1234KD Maastricht
Telefoon: 0654
Date: 1-06-1999

I want to grab a group :the line after Adres: and finish with a newline:

 

This can be done with Adres:(.*?)\n

 

I want to reproduce this in AutoIT:

#include <StringConstants.au3>
Local $sMail  =    "Adres: Statenkanaal 11 1234KD Maastricht"  & @CRLF & _
                        "Telefoon: 004999999966673"  & @CRLF & _
                        "Geboortedatum: 21-7-2001"  & @CRLF & _
                        " OrderID: 5102"  & @CRLF & _
                        ""  & @CRLF & _
                        "Datum: 20-2-2022 14:56:39"

$sMailAddress = StringRegExp($sMail, "(?i)Adres:(.*?)\n", $STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH , 1)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sMailAddress[0]) 

 

 

But this doesn't match.  Do I miss something in AutoIT regarding new lines?

added codebox and include, changed address to ensure it is invalid.

These should be correct:

$sMailAddress = StringRegExp($sMail, "(?i)Adres:(.*?)\r", $STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH,1)
; or
$sMailAddress = StringRegExp($sMail, "(?i)Adres:(.*?)[\r\n]", $STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH,1)
; or
$sMailAddress = StringRegExp($sMail, "(?i)Adres:(.*?)\v", $STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH,1)
; or
$sMailAddress = StringRegExp($sMail, "(?im)^Adres:(.*?)$", $STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH,1)

You can get along with just:

$sMailAddress = StringRegExp($sMail, "(?i)Adres:\h*(.*)", $STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH, 1)

In PCRE dot (.) doesn't match a newline sequence. \h* ahead avoids grabbing the space.

I want to reproduce this in AutoIT :

(Note from Musashi : I have replaced the data with xxxx ;))

Local $sMail  =    "Adres: XXXX Maastricht"  & @CRLF & _
                        "Telefoon: XXXXXXXXXXX"  & @CRLF & _
                        "Geboortedatum: XX-X-XXXX"  & @CRLF & _
                        " OrderID: XXXX"  & @CRLF & _
                        ""  & @CRLF & _
                        "Datum: 29-5-2022 14:56:39"

 

Off topic : In your code snippet you apparently used real personal data. I would remove these as a precaution or provide fantasy data.

It is already changed out of precaution! ;)
