[resolved] string regex

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

The subject says it all. I'm a noob and I need to place a 12 to 16 character number, which will be mixed in with text and other crap on the clipboard, into a variable to use with the rest of my macro. Any assistance much appreciated. I'm a kinetic learner so an example code snippet would be my favorite :-) Thanks!

#include <Array.au3>

$sText = "asldkjfsadf1234567890101213dsflkjsdfsdf2!"
$aResult = StringRegExp($sText, "\d{12,16}", 1)
If IsArray($aResult) Then
    _ArrayDisplay($aResult)
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No 12-16 digits found!")
EndIf

Obviously you'll need to use ClipGet to get the clipboard text.

Hi,

or did you mean getting a 12 chars long value from a text?

Thank you! I think this will work for me. I'll know tomorrow when I have more time to work on it.

OK, I suspect my problem is now just a Regex issue. No matter what I've tried, it just goes to the Else msgbox.

This is a sample of what needs to be parsed:

Document ID: 2007082915561148   Title: 'blah'
Web URL: http://piss.off.lou  FOD # <Not Available>

All I need is the long number but it won't always be in the same place and the long number could very easily be present more than once too.

This code works for me:

#include <Array.au3>

$sText = ClipGet()
$aResult = StringRegExp($sText, "\d{12,16}", 1)
If IsArray($aResult) Then
    _ArrayDisplay($aResult)
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No 12-16 digits found!")
EndIf

I simply highlighted and your sample, pressed CTRL-C, then ran the script


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

This works too:

#include <Array.au3>

$sText = "Document ID: 2007082915561148   Title: 'blah'" & @CRLF _
&"Web URL: http://piss.off.lou  FOD # <Not Available>"
$aResult = StringRegExp($sText, "\d{12,16}", 1)
If IsArray($aResult) Then
    _ArrayDisplay($aResult)
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No 12-16 digits found!")
EndIf

OK, thanks. You guys rule. The whole array thing got me confused. I had to convert the array to a string with _ArrayToString.

#include <Array.au3>

$2 = StringReplace($1," ","")
$3 = StringReplace($2,"-","")
$4 = StringRegExp($3, "\d{12,16}", 1)
$5 = _ArrayToString($4)
msgbox(48,"",$5)
