Not String In String?

3 posts in this topic

Is there a command with which I can find the position of the first character which doesn't match the given string? For example, let's say that I have a string variable with the value "AAAAAABCAADEFJRKEAAA" - what would be the simplest way to find where the stream of As ends?

I've tried adding the "NOT" keyword to StringInStr, for example

StringInStr($list_contents, NOT @LF)

...but that always returns zero.

Any suggestions on how to handle this with a minimum of clutter?

Not sure i understand, you need to find an end position of some string? then just add the lenght:

$String = "AAAAAABCAADEFJRKEAAA"
$EndString = "AAAAAA"

MsgBox(64, "", _
    StringFormat("<%s> End Position in <%s>:\n\n%i", $EndString, $String, StringInStr($String, $EndString)+StringLen($EndString)-1))

$EndString = "DEF"

MsgBox(64, "", _
    StringFormat("<%s> End Position in <%s>:\n\n%i", $EndString, $String, StringInStr($String, $EndString)+StringLen($EndString)-1))
