Spaces and StringIsLower

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I want to use StringIsLower to check if a string contains only lower case letters, but of the string contains all lower case letters and a space, the function returns False.

Is this normal behaviour?

My code:

$SourceX = StringStripWS($SourceX , 7)
if StringIsLower($SourceX) = 1 then
    MsgBox(0, "TEST", "All lower case")
endif

If $SourceX = "abcde" this works fine, but if $SourceX = "ab de", it is not considered all lower case.

I have also tried:

$SourceX = StringStripWS($SourceX , 7)   
if StringLower($SourceX) = $SourceX then
        MsgBox(0, "TEST", "All lower case")
endif

But this doesn't work either.

Is there a simple solution that I overlook?

Bart

Use StringStringWS with flag 8 will do it for a check.

$SourceX = "abcd qfs"
If StringIsLower(StringStripWS($SourceX,8)) Then
MsgBox(0, "Test", "All lower case letters")
EndIf

You dont have to have If StringIsLower = 1, just say, "If StringIsLower Then", because the If statement will handle the boolean answer. Similarly, If NOT StringIsLower Then will check if it isnt lowercase.

Also, combined two of your lines into one.

Understood JdeB. I slipped there! :"> , StringStripWS :wacko:

Is this normal behaviour?

The difference between 7 & 8 is that 7 will remove double spaces or more where as 8 will remove all spaces.

Edit:

Ok, oh forum would be nice with autocomplete, like Scite4AutoIt3 has... :D for my sake atleast.

Thank you all!

This works great:

$SourceX= StringStripWS($SourceX, 7)   
If StringIsLower(StringStripWS($SourceX, 8)) Then
        MsgBox(0, "TEST", "All lower case")
endif

(I still need both versions (7 & 8) because of further operations on the string after the test.)
