RegExp Quick Tester

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Since I start using RegExp more and more, I need a tool for quickly testing patterns. I tried script, created by steve8tch and w0uter, it's works fine, but I was bored to click Test button after 5 minutes :D

So, here is my version. It's concept is a bit different, this is not work with big files, because it's goal - quick testing. But it can:

  • Results are showing instantly while editing
  • Support replace pattern testing as well
  • Text and patterns are automatically saving between sessions
  • Middle mouse button click on search pattern editbox show menu with characters quick reference
Edit: updated code, fixed noticeable probs. Most likely this will be last version, if I would tried w0uter's version first (which suitable my needs), this would not appear :D

Edit:

2006-07-22: small fix - middlebutton context menu will show only when window active.

2007-10-09: version 2.5, updated to new PCRE and so on

Are the many open problems in StringRegExp the showstopper preventing the 3.1.x beta regime from finishing?

This is RAD! Is there an update to working with the latests Production Release of AU3? I cannot compile the script. :)

It's rad. I think this would REALLY help me learn RegEx.

Lol, this is a day of my old topics :)

Yeah, I have new version already fixed to latest PCRE syntax and form with latest Koda abilities. Just need a time to code polishing ;)

@JohnBailey

I'm not planned posting updated version (many other RegExp tesing tools are available), but since you have an interest - it's here :P

YAHOOOOOOOOOO!! :);)

thanks!! I'm excited to use a tool like this to help learn RegExp. I've read a lot on it, but I'm more "hands on"

Thanks!

Keep up the GREAT work!

Any ideas as to why my middle-click-mouse button won't "pull"/"call" the pop DummyContext menu? I know I can do work arounds, but that's REALLY a nice feature!

Maybe this generate some other code instead 4? Though I'm tried at least on three systems with different mices, and this worked anywhere.

That's good to know that it's just my mouse (probably something wack with the drivers). Thank you for testing that!!

I just went with rightclick

After searching the forum, downloading & testing examples for days I finally ended up here.

Wow! This awesome piece of code seems to be fallen from heaven :D Thank you!

Now I'm able to play around with (and learn) RegEx, which bumped my ass before :o

However, to run it I had to include something additional:

#include <ComboConstants.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

#include <EditConstants.au3>

#include <GuiTab.au3>

Maybe my AutoIt installation is broken? I use version 3.3.0.0
