RegEx Help

I'm trying to get my regex to return true if the string is *only* numeric and at least 3 digits long

I was using StringRegExp($sTemp, "[0-9]{3}") but it will return true for things like "junk1234junk" I cant seem to figure out how to do a "and must not contain [a-z]" type regex. i tried [^:alpha:] but that still just matches numbers and "junk1234junk" is positive.

Any help would be appreciated.

^ or /A for the beginning of the string

$ or \z for the end of the string

Expression would be something like:

"^\d{3}$"

or

"\A\d{3}\z"

etc...


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

neither of those work they fail to find a number. after i posted a methood did occur to me its not optimal i would still rather have one regex but it works

if not StringRegExp($sTemp, "[\D]") then
  If StringRegExp($sTemp, "[0-9]{3}") then
  My code
 endif
endif

You don't seem to be doing what I suggested:
Local $a_sample[4] = ["junk1234junk","123","1234","j12"]
For $i = 0 To UBound($a_sample) - 1
    If StringRegExp($a_sample[$i], "^\d{3}$") Then
        MsgBox(64, "Info", "Array Element " & $i & " is true." & @CRLF & $a_sample[$i])
    EndIf
Next

Edit:

I misread the at least part.

Try this:

Local $a_sample[4] = ["junk1234junk","123","1234","j12"]
For $i = 0 To UBound($a_sample) - 1
    If StringRegExp($a_sample[$i], "^\d\d\d+$") Then
        MsgBox(64, "Info", "Array Element " & $i & " is true." & @CRLF & $a_sample[$i])
    EndIf
Next

$test = StringSplit("124,12354,A234,23A,fe345,34,1,343", ',')
For $i = 1 To UBound($test) - 1
    If StringRegExp($test[$i], '\A\d{3}$', 0) = 1 Then
        ConsoleWrite("! MATCH : " & $test[$i] & @CRLF)
    Else
        ConsoleWrite("+> NO MATCH : " & $test[$i] & @CRLF)
    EndIf
Next

Ahh yes that one seems to work. Thank you it's much less klunky than the nested IF statement.

looks like Xenobiologist also missed the "least" part of it, his code returns

! MATCH : 124

+> NO MATCH : 12354

+> NO MATCH : A234

+> NO MATCH : 23A

+> NO MATCH : fe345

+> NO MATCH : 34

+> NO MATCH : 1

! MATCH : 343

where 12354 should be a match. nice use of console write as opposed to message boxes tho
