string trim

Recommended Posts

lordflyingpoo

Is there any way to trim a string of varying length, with a constant character, after that constant character?

Any help would be appreciated.


our father, who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation, indivisible, as it is in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail, and crown thy good into temptation, but deliver us from the twilight. amen.

Here is an example from my above post.

7-ZipPortable.exe|Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0 DLL [Nullsoft PiMP SFX]

7zFM.exe|UPX -> www.upx.sourceforge.net *

What I am trying to do is to remove everything after the | .

I have tried several ways, with your advice, to achieve this but none have worked.


our father, who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation, indivisible, as it is in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail, and crown thy good into temptation, but deliver us from the twilight. amen.

Generator

None array, easy way just use StringSplit()

MsgBox(64,"Result",StringTrimRight("7-ZipPortable.exe|Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0 DLL [Nullsoft PiMP SFX]",StringLen("7-ZipPortable.exe|Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0 DLL [Nullsoft PiMP SFX]") - StringInStr("7-ZipPortable.exe|Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0 DLL [Nullsoft PiMP SFX]","|") + 1))

$String = "7-ZipPortable.exe|Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0 DLL [Nullsoft PiMP SFX]"
$Results = StringLeft($String, StringInStr($String, "|")-1)

MsgBox(0, "", $Results)

;Or...

$String = "7-ZipPortable.exe|Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0 DLL [Nullsoft PiMP SFX]"
$Results = StringRegExpReplace($String, "\|.*", "")

MsgBox(0, "", $Results)
