Reading Text

3 posts in this topic

Hi all

I am reading text into a variable then comparing it with a string, and I want it to ignore the case.

I have looked everywhere I can think of but I cant find how to achieve this.

Thanks for looking

String compares in AutoIt are normally not case sensitive unless the "==" operator is used:
$sA = "Variable"
$sB = "VARIABLE"
$sMsg = $sA & " = " & $sB & " is " & ($sA = $sB) & @CRLF
$sMsg &= $sA & " == " & $sB & " is " & ($sA == $sB) & @CRLF
MsgBox(64, "Results", $sMsg)

In some functions, such as _StringInStr(), an input parameter is used to flag case sensitivity.

Hi and thanks.

I am using e RegRead create a variable and then comparing it with a text string and it was only working intermittently. I looked at several regestries and found that the only difference was the case in some instances. I have amended the script to read:

$read = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Winscribe\General\", "WinscribeURL")

$read1 = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Winscribe\General\", "WinscribeURL")

$readl = StringLower($read)

If $read = "" Then Exit

If $readl = "http://rpras008/winscribe/" Or $readl = "http://rpras008/winscribe" Then

and this seems to be working so far. Bizzarre I know but there you are.

Thanks for the reply
