Stringregedit help

6 posts in this topic

Using this pattern its only giving me back "arro" missing the W, i can't figure out what is wrong with the pattern

$Pattern2 = '(?i)\[[^]]*\]\s*.*?(?:is hit with)(.*?)\s*for\s*(\d+)'

Don is hit with arrow for 100 damage.

If you're just looking for that word, then StringBetween() is less of a headache.

$ResultArray = _StringBetween($test,"is hit with "," for")

RegExps take some getting used to. I just modified yours a bit.

$sText = "Don is hit with arrow for 100 damage."
$aRegExp = StringRegExp($sText, "(?i).*?(?:is hit with)(.*?)\s*for\s*(\d+)", 1)
If NOT @Error Then MsgBox(0, "Result", $aRegExp[0] & @CRLF & $aRegExp[1])

Edit: If the results may appear more than once, change the 1 to a 3

$aRegExp = StringRegExp($sText, "(?i).*?(?:is hit with)(.*?)\s*for\s*(\d+)", 3)
