String evaluation

15 posts in this topic

I am trying to not allow the charters \ and ? from the input box -

Works for ? not for \ why ?

CODE
#include <String.au3>

#include <array.au3>

$checkks = InputBox("DONT ALLOW \ ?", "ELIMINATE \ ?", "", "", _

-1, -1, 0, 0)

$REPL = StringRegExpReplace($checkks, '[\?]', '@')

$result = StringInStr($REPL, "@")

If $result > 0 Then

MsgBox(0,"bad ", $result)

Else

MsgBox(0,"good ", $result)

endif

Your If/Then statement for what it looks like you are trying to do is wrong... Do you want to replace all \ and ??

$checkks = InputBox("DONT ALLOW \ ?", "ELIMINATE \ ?", "", "", _
-1, -1, 0, 0)

$REPL = StringRegExpReplace($checkks, '\\|\?', '@')
MsgBox(0, '', $REPL)

The user may enter just ones the charter \

if the user repeats ..works ...

But if it works for other charters why not for " \ "

A way of confusing you, as you've chosen to confuse us. Try to be a bit more literate when asking for help on what exactly you want help with. I hate trying to decipher request more than I do deciphering code itself.

hi , ehm you best use SmOke_Ns code

a little explanation : the "\" is often called the "Escape " character - to display or search for special character like "? * \" - so if you search for "\" you need to escape it like "\\" in your search statement ..

Smoke >I will try to be literate in autoit . The reason why i want resolve this problem is as you stated in your post yesterday

which is Good !

my question may sound easy .... but i faced with a problem how to avoid "autoit error messages " . and this was a way

to my particular situation :

The user may enter just ones "\" in my input box .

the solution might be to evaluate this charter separately , but i was evaluating with other charters .

an the evalution for this charter failed .

How feasible would it be to have the option?

Personally, I'd like to see it like COM error handling, where you can trap the error, determine it's relevance, and choose to Prompt with exit / Prompt and continue / Suppress and exit / Suppress and continue.

Speaking with a respected forum member tonight, they made the comment, even the best of us screw something up every now and again.

Just sucks to know that someone is able to sometimes peak at your code, even when you don't want them too, or finding out this way that it's an AutoIt executable, and get funny ideas (I'll leave this to the imagination).

/ErrorStdOut, in many of my own cases isn't a good solution. The perfect solution, obviously, is to never make a mistake, but realistically speaking, that's not always going to happen.

and learning to make a mistake .

1 slash and how many question marks are they allowed?

Edit:

Even better, show us an example of an improper string and show us how you would like to correct it (A before and after).

Edit2:

Without an example of a Bad string / Good string... I'm left to assume this is what you are trying to do:

$checkks = InputBox("DONT ALLOW \ ?", "ELIMINATE \ ?", "", "", -1, -1, 0, 0)
    If @error = 1 Then Exit
    $REPL = StringRegExpReplace($checkks, '\\{2,}', '\1\\')
    $REPL = StringRegExpReplace($REPL, '\?', '\1@')
    MsgBox(0, '', $REPL)

here is your code modified from last post with all evaluated charters :

the variable $REPL returns @ to all charters except \ which returns itself

why \ not returning @ ?

CODE
$checkks = InputBox("DONT ALLOW \ ?", "ELIMINATE \ ?", "", "", _

-1, -1, 0, 0)

$REPL = StringRegExpReplace($checkks, '[><|"?*+\/]', '@')

MsgBox(0, '', $REPL)

I think I answered this already kind of:

[><|"?*+\/\\]
is probably what you want.

Thank you ! Problem solved .for my particular case.

If the user write his name in the input box properly , no problem .

But if some body gives your application a hard strike , " The autoit eroor message comes , together with all your codes ".

I have even tested some applications in this forum with users input . and the autoit error message appears with a collection of codes . if you try with all your charters . I dont know why autoit is so sensitive ?

i tried all methods like "ErrorHandlerRegister " not worked . to surpress errors and go back to the scrren (GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_SHOW) or close the application.

Seeing as we still have no real code to look at and decipher, we don't know why it's sensitive either :whistle: .
