StringTrimLeft AND StringTrimRight

5 posts in this topic

I have a

$string_variable = "XToday is a new dayX"

And I want to remove the first AND the last letters (both "X"), so my $string_variable will be meaningful ("Today is a new day").

How to do $trimmed = {StringTrimLeft ($string_variable, 1) AND StringTrimRight ($string_variable, 1)}

?

Thanks.

Best regards.

$string_variable = "XToday is a new dayX"
$trimmed = StringTrimLeft ($string_variable, 1)
$trimmed = StringTrimRight ($trimmed, 1)
MsgBox (0, "TRIMMED", "Trimed from '" &$string_variable & "' to '"&$trimmed&"'")

Just for academic interest, you can "nest" functions in AutoIt, which means the input parameter to a function can be a call to another function. So you might start with Bert's working demo:

$string_variable = "XToday is a new dayX"
$trimmed = StringTrimLeft ($string_variable, 1)
$trimmed = StringTrimRight ($trimmed, 1)
MsgBox (0, "TRIMMED", "Trimed from '" &$string_variable & "' to '"&$trimmed&"'")

...and combine the StringTrim functions:

$string_variable = "XToday is a new dayX"
$trimmed = StringTrimRight (StringTrimLeft ($string_variable, 1), 1)
MsgBox (0, "TRIMMED", "Trimed from '" &$string_variable & "' to '"&$trimmed&"'")

...and combine again into the MsgBox (if you don't need the intermediate $trimmed variable for later use):

$string_variable = "XToday is a new dayX"
MsgBox (0, "TRIMMED", "Trimed from '" & $string_variable & "' to '" & StringTrimRight (StringTrimLeft ($string_variable, 1), 1) &"'")
