Using EVAL and .match to edit extracted source code

Post by Riss » Fri Mar 22, 2013 4:47 am


I'm hoping someone can help... I've searched this forum as well as Google looking for info that could assist me with my problem which has got me this far but now I need some guidance which is specific to my project.

I'm using the following code to extract the page source code;

Code: Select all

The result returned is this; All I want is the Number contained in the 'Value' tag, in this example 164033.
<td onmouseout="Tables.unSelectRow(this);" onmouseover="Tables.selectRow(this);" style="text-align: center; border-color: rgb(0, 0, 255); border-width: 2px; border-style: solid;"><input name="segmentsToAllocate" id="segmentsToAllocate" value="164033" onclick="SegmentsToAllocate.toggleSelectCostingSegment(this, true, true, SegmentsToAllocate.getInvoiceHeaderColumnPosition(), false); SegmentsToAllocate.calculateSummaryTotals();" type="checkbox"></td>
I thought to use the EVAL function but I am struggling with the JavaScript component of this. At the moment my code is this:

Code: Select all

SET !VAR1 EVAL("var s='{{!EXTRACT}}'; s.match(/value=+(.+?)[^0-9]/);")
I think I'm close as the result I'm getting is
but I'm not there yet... Can anyone out there please help?

SET !VAR1 EVAL("var s='{{!EXTRACT}}'; s.match(/value=+(.+?)[^0-9]/); s[0]")
