or

if text is = xyz the switch to abc.

Hum, I googled as well "CIM + FCI + iMacros" and the first Hit is on the iMacros Forum and the second one on Stackoverflow, both with full explanation of what they mean... :roll:
Searching the Forum for any Acronym would be even more "powerful", and reading 1 cm below this Post, => my Sig...!, even easier... :idea:

Script for replacing the text with condition?

Post by manotop » Tue Aug 30, 2016 3:25 pm

I want to build a code for the form:

if text is = XYZ then switch it to ABC.

AND

if text is = XYZ then switch to ABC.



Please pay attention to the Script number 2:

Script number 1: Extract text line (this will get the text):

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:TEXT FORM=ID:newOffer ATTR=ID:add-title EXTRACT=TXT
Script number 2: I found the below script on the forum but it only replaces the whole string and first of all it has no second condition and I am not sure how to implement it with this code below:

Code: Select all

SET !VAR2 EVAL("var extr2=\"{{!EXTRACT}}\"; extr2.replace(\"ABC\",\"XYZ\"); ")
Script number 3: Add the texts:

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:TEXT FORM=ID:newOffer ATTR=ID:add-title CONTENT={{!VAR2}}
P.S. I did some research and find out that I need to set some type of if else or true/false condition but I couldn't make it to work as I am not good at JavaScript.


I am using: Mac OS 10.11, FireFox iMacro 8.9.7, FireFox v48.02

Maybe this code?

Code: Select all

SET !VAR2 EVAL("('{{!EXTRACT}}' == 'ABC') ? 'XYZ' : 'ABC';")

First of all thanks for taking the time to reply.

For some reasons the code isnt working when I run it. Its not even replacing ABC to XYZ.
How about if the text is XYZ then switch it to ABC? Also please keep in mind that I want this to be run in one single code. Because if there are two separate codes it will replace ABC back to ABC (ABC > XYZ > XYZ > ABC) so I want to make sure that it doesnt run it twice. I hope you can understand. If you want more explanation please let me know.
Thanks again :)

Did you test in the following way?

Code: Select all

SET !EXTRACT "ABC"
SET !VAR2 EVAL("('{{!EXTRACT}}' == 'ABC') ? 'XYZ' : 'ABC';")
PROMPT {{!VAR2}}

Hum..., @OP, good to see that you finally understood my Request to mention your FCI but there was no need to open a Duplicate Thread, you should have followed up and posted this Info (and your "more Info") in your Original Thread, so this current one will be merged with the Original one... and I won't try to help you anymore in the future... :roll: Good luck with @iimfun and other Advanced Users... (Sorry but I only help Users using the Forum a bit correctly... :roll: )

@iimfun u are a genius! It actually works!

BTW I am not sure if I am allowed to ask it out on the same post or not but I will ask you anyway as I have made a post on the forum a while back and nobody was able to answer it. Right now the last piece of this whole thing is I want the script to check which day is it and run/stop accordingly.

For example:
Check if the today is Monday or Wednesday or Friday if true Continue the script. Otherwise stop the script.


Thanks

Play carefully this line

Code: Select all

SET checkDay EVAL("var d = (new Date()).toString(); (d.match(/^(Mon|Wed|Fri)/)) ? 'CONTINUE' : MacroError(d + ' => STOP !');")

F*cking nice. I am also learning JS too. How much time do i have to spend to get to your level? I am learning from Treehouse and Codeacademy sites is it ok to learn from them or do you have a better recommendation?

Well, learn JS by any tutorials that you like and just try to solve hard tasks. The progress depends mostly on your own efforts and sometimes on good advices. Good luck!
