Delete Last Word

Post by Maxal » Sun Feb 08, 2015 7:17 pm

Hey

I am new to almost everything under the sun, especially if it is scripting :) Installed iMacro and trying to see how it could help me.

I am using an iMacro which pastes text in a text area. I want to know how I could make the iMacro to delete the last word of the pasted text.

Thanx
Max

Hi Maxal !

You can extract the content of the text area (TAG ... EXTRACT=TXT)

Then with EVAL you can eval the size of the last word from the extract, and prepare the number of press on the delete key for the keypress command.

A least you play the keypress command.

Example of code that works on this forum (I suppose there is a space before the last word) :

Code: Select all

' Extract the content of the text area
TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=ID:postform ATTR=ID:message EXTRACT=TXT
' Lenght of the last word + the space before it
SET !VAR1 EVAL("var e=\"{{!EXTRACT}}\"; (e.toString().length - e.toString().lastIndexOf(\" \"));")
' Prepare the good numbers of delete for the keypress command
SET !VAR2 EVAL("var t=\"\"; for(i=0; i<=parseInt(\"{{!VAR1}}\"); i++){t+=\"8,\"};t=t.substring(0, t.length-1);")
' Delete the last word and the space before it
EVENTS TYPE=KEYPRESS SELECTOR="#message" KEYS="[{{!VAR2}}]"

Hey skippyto, thanks for the code. But I guess it won't work in my peculiar case.

I have to paste text in a text box which trims anything beyond 400 characters, this often leaves last word cut in half. For instance, if the limit of 400 characters ends and a word is incomplete, it will be iMac instead of iMacro because ro are 2 excessive characters. And issue is that the box trims the character only if I click inside the box. If I paste the text through iMacro, the box doesn't trim the text to 400 characters which is a must.

I am not sure if it is possible or not, but in short, what I want is that iMacro pastes the text into the box, than hit a click inside it so that text is trimmed to 400 characters, and only then it removes the very last word which may be a half word. That's the whole scenario.

Thanks again for your help skippyto :)

Fouff...!, I'm not sure I understand exactly what you mean/want... :?

But if I understand "correctly", that you get for example in the 'EXTRACT' => "Order Number: 1234", and you only want to keep "1234" and not " 1234", (=> without the leading Space), simply include that Space in the 'replace()', I would think:

Code: Select all

SET !VAR1 EVAL("var variable=\"{{!EXTRACT}}\"; variable.replace(/Order Number: /g,''); ")
You could also use 'trim()' and/or 'split()'..., and your 'replace()' probably doesn't need to be /global/...

Yeah but you missed the "FCIM" part for me to follow up... :roll:

"Maybe you can help" => As far as I can tell, I'm already helping you...!! :roll: And nope, I don't write Code for other Users (or very rarely), I let you (and other Users searching the Forum with a similar Qt/Scenario) understand "what you are doing [wrong]" and find the Solution by yourself... :wink:

"but all time got er[r]ror" is pretty vague and not very helpful if you don't mention which Error(s)...!?, and together with the "many met[h]ods" that you tried, ah-ah...!? :roll:

And try to put some mini-Effort into your Posts and to improve a bit the "Quality", your English is already a bit "approx" to understand, but nearly every Word you type contains also one or more Typos... :roll:
And the Spaces are not visible if you don't use any Delimiters or some Formatting like I did in my Quote...

Hum @ERN645, I see you are Online checking the Forum right now, so I do a mini-Check on your previous Thread(s) and I notice you never finished this one "correctly" and useful for other Users by sharing the/your Solution..., which would/will be a Condition for me a "next time" if you ever need some Help from the Forum, to help you again..., just saying... :idea:
(And you'll then still have to finish this one correctly first, and then have to wait for the same amount of time the Forum Community will have been waiting for your Solution/Final Script... :P )

And I had asked you twice, => 3x times now, to mention your FCI, but you didn't react/comply... :roll:

>>>

:!: And if you ever open (a) New Thread(s), make sure to open your Thread(s) in the correct Sub-Forum or I don't answer/help, this one for example had nothing specific to the 'iMacros for FF' Sub-Forum, but that was also the Case for the Original Thread, so I didn't say anything about it at that time..., even if your Part had not much related to the Original Thread...

I'm actually "nearly" surprised I had approved your 1st Post in this Thread and didn't ask you rather to open your own Thread..., but I think I was a bit "busy" at that time in the Summer 2019 at some Music Festival (I'm actually a DJ IRL...) and only had limited Internet so I could only check the Forum from time to time to quickly approve the 1st time Posts from New Users that were a bit OK for the Forum, no Spam etc..., without being too strict on the Quality, or you would have had to wait for a few days before your 1st Post got approved... 8)

I will actually ask the Forum Admin to split this Thread to bring your "Part" in a Standalone Thread and to move it to the 'Data Extraction' Sub-Forum where it rather belongs... :wink:
