Get partial Value in the innertext

Post by mariya.syera » Thu Mar 08, 2018 1:25 am

What do I need to enter in Capture Regex to get a value in the middle of the text?

Get "123456" Value from: Visit 123456 has been created successfully.
or
Get "Test" value from: Visit Test has been created successfully

Hi,

You can use this regex, to extract number from string:
\d+
And this one for extracting string after "Visit" (+ space) string:
(?<=Visit\s)[^\s]+
Hope this helps? ;)

The string is in format: AA - BB - CC - DD. I would like to capture the last part of the string, i.e. DD (the DD string contains spaces). Regex capture (?<=\-\s)(?s)(.*$) returns BB - CC - DD. But how to capture the part after the last minus and space?

Hi,

Try this...
[^- \s]+$

Thanks, but the last part contains spaces, so the DD can be for example "the last string". [^- \s]+$ captures "string" only. I would like to get everything after the last minus and space.

What about this?...
[^-\s][^-]+$
