i have a .txt LOG file for a LAN chat room thing... uhhh and i want to search the file and if it says '{CurrentUserNames.}' then i want it to say the @Username = ClientName ..... but 1 second later i want it to replace '{CurrentUserNames.}' with ''... i have searched, tried stringreplace()... and

StringRegExpReplace ($File_Read,'{CurrentUserNames.}',' ')

but nothing, anyhelp?

If a character is a metacharacter and it's not within a class then it has to be escaped or use the \Q...\E block to ignore all metacharacters meaning except for the \Q...\E it-self. For example the '.' match anything if it can (even multi-lines with (?s) switch), and '{}' pair are for repetition amount. Read the help file and if it's not the case then post some code please.

Can you give an example of the log file? Is {CurrentUserNames.} a heading and then it lists the user names after it?

what happens is at my school we have a transferdrive that is a shared virtual drive and i have a hidden file (will add filesetattrib later) but i want to know WHO is on the chat so when the admin of the chat says {CurrentUserNames.} then everyone writes to the one file Clientname = @Username BUT my problem is that it continuously says the @username..... so i want to read the file... and if {CurrentUserNames.} is in it replace {CurrentUserNames.} with a space, or blank string

EDIT

check the While looop... thats where i have the check for stringinstr.... ive tried puting the IF in another loop... Do...For... then use EXITloop.. but no since the actuall phrase is still in the file.. any ideas?

If you can confirm that you open the file correctly, I mean, it's name in the INI file was read correctly then I can assume you'll need to use _WinAPI_CreateFile with read/write access mode and share_read/share_write access mode to be able to read changes. If it's not the case, try to close it's handle and reopen it and then read it, or better just read the file using it's path/name instead of a handle and using FileRead. Also, remake your StringRegExpReplace, some metacharacters have to be escaped if you want to match those and not what they are governing, '.' with '\.' or '{' with '\{' or use \Q...\E block to ignore any metacharacter within this block.
