String search

15 posts in this topic

I'm looking to get a value from the following string:

$string = "Blah Blah Blah increased! (Now at 10%)"

I want to grab that number 10 and put it in a variable. The number increases and so is different every time I want to grab it. I can't trim this string. Is there some way to grab just that number before the %?

I just checked to make sure I had the latest beta and I don't see a _StringBetween...

Ok, I see a pattern...does it always say "(Now At xx%)"?

And is "xx" always a number?

And is it the ONLY number in that pattern?

If so, then

$string = "Blah Blah Blah increased! (Now at 10%)"
$temp = StringInStr($string, "(Now at")
$temp = StringMid($string, $temp, 30)
$temp = StringSplit($temp, "")
If IsArray($temp) Then
    $NewString = ""
    For $x = 1 To $temp[0]
        If IsNumber($temp[$x]) Then $NewString = $NewString & $temp[$x]
    Next
EndIf
MsgBox(0,"",$NewString)

You didn't say that before.

Give an entire string please as it would be grabbed?

Or you can adjust the length of the count in StringMid() ... I just chose 30 characters as arbitrary.

Typical entire string would be:

$string =

You attack an enemy.

You attack the enemy for 223!

The enemy is dead.

Blah Blah Blah increased! (Now at 10%)

Location: 2, 5 in

Area

Level Up.

Health: 90%

Monster Hit Points: 0/223

Gold:

690,000

My routine still performs as expected. Look up in the helpfile StringInStr() and StringMid()

StringInStr() tells StringMid() where to start searching the $string variable. In this case, it STARTS at the "(" in "(Now" It then extracts the next 30 characters (or to the end of the string, which ever comes first) and searches them one at a time for any numbers.

Simple?

Ah, ok, I should be able to just have it finish at the second ")" then right?

You could, but if the remainder of the string is shorter than 30 characters, then it's fine as is.

You could tell the loop to bomb out if it finds ")"

Simply add

if $temp[$x] = ")" Then ExitLoop
after the IsNumber() function inside the for/next

Ok I think I follow you now, but in:

If IsNumber($temp[$x]) Then $NewString = $NewString & $temp[$x]

What is the then statement doing? Is it adding the found number in the $temp array onto the $newstring?

(Not working yet :whistle:)

I'm not getting any numbers picked up no matter how long I extend the count in the StringMid.

Either way, you can see it's pulling the string out correctly, perhaps you could come up with a different method using the shortened string?

prepare for the RegEx onslaught...

also... a _StringBetween UDF exists...

Lar.

hehehe...

$string = "Blah Blah Blah increased! (Now at 10%)"
$Array = _SRE_BetweenEX($string, 'Now at ', '\)')
MsgBox(64, '', $Array[0])

Func _SRE_BetweenEX($s_String, $s_Start, $s_End)
    $a_Array = StringRegExp($s_String, '(?s)(?i)' & $s_Start & '(.*?)' & $s_End, 3)
    If IsArray($a_Array) Then Return $a_Array
    Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
EndFunc
