Stringinstr and IeBodyReadText

Recommended Posts

TheTex

Hi,

I'm trying to take information from a website using IeBodyReatText and stringinstr. The information i want precedes a certain string that says "This much:".

This much: one-hundred

Is an example of what one looks like. How would I make the program recognize just the one-hundred?

Note- "one-hundred" is just an example and changes everytime the program loops.

If you could just give a bigger part of the text, then we'll be happy to oblige in writing you a little snippet that does this for you.

Authenticity that might be able to work but I am not able to get it right.

That is the source text I am searching through, and I am wanting the names of all the names.

"last post by;" is the text preceding the name(s) I want.

I put the text you sent us in a file called test.txt in the same directory as the script.

Here's the script, I tried to keep it simple and straightforward so I hope that is what it is to you.

#include <Array.au3>

$data = FileRead("test.txt")

$line = StringSplit(StringStripCR($data),@LF)

Dim $results[1]

For $i = 1 to UBound($line)-1
    if ( StringInStr($line[$i], "last post by; " ) ) Then
        _ArrayAdd($results, StringMid($line[$i],16))
    EndIf
Next

_ArrayDisplay($results)

;
#include <inet.au3>
#include<array.au3>;; For _ArrayDisplay only
$sSrc = _InetGetSource("http://pastebin.com/m1190c59a")
$aRegEx = StringRegExp($sSrc,"(?i)<li\sclass=.li.+last\spost\sby;\s*(.+)</div>", 3)
If Not @Error Then _ArrayDisplay($aREgEx)
;

EDIT:

I should have added this information.

If you are already using the _IE* Functions for another reason then use _IEBodyReadHTML() for $sSrc in the code above.
