Replace text between *

Recommended Posts



need to replace text between know marker (*, #, etc.).

ES: *random_text* -> *my_text*

read help for StringRegExp function but is a bit too hard for me,

anyone can suggest me right way ?

Thank you,



add my line to explain : <div align="center">Check : --time_15:00--</div>

must replace with : <div align="center">Check : --time_18:30--</div>

where time_ is a variable

This worked for me :P

#include <String.au3>

$string = _StringReplaceBetween ('<div align="center">Check : --time_15:00--</div>', '<div align="center">', '</div>', 'Check : --time_18:30--')
MsgBox (0, "", $string)

Func _StringReplaceBetween ($sString, $sStart, $sEnd, $sReplace)
    $searchstring = _StringBetween ($sString, $sStart, $sEnd)
    If @error Then SetError (1, -1, 0)
    $return = StringReplace ($sString, $searchstring[0], $sReplace)
    Return $return
