[Solved] Webparser and string.match

Post by FreeRaider »

Hello all, I have this situation.

Using webparser for parsing an URL, I can get two results:
a) <div id="text-content" data-reactid=".olvb8xc740.1.2.0.0.0.2.0.1"><div id="text" dir="auto" data-reactid=".olvb8xc740.1.2.0.0.0.2.0.1.2"><h3 class="text-restricted" data-reactid=".olvb8xc740.1.2.0.0.0.2.0.1.2.0">Unfortunately we're not authorized to show these texts.</h3><img src="//tracking.newco.com/t1.0/m_img/e_0/sn_0/l_7768761/su_0/tr_JXFcUSmLGm3tRMZTMDpU1YysJ14YRO42rd5xpbb224wiCxEmd1oVzfjkWLKAM/VGUHVL6cRCMWwiKcjX5EqD5kTjtZ/IEhvrqNqVM4Oyi80eI43w+r/Lu4w1McMmqSA/ttmHfD+KSMjNyQf9c064l6ARS/JJSBkLLKwBXGwDseXkptsZT8cyAzWsige/nRNrO3e59TFUSmgpyzIHkL4hqIrLJaS4Me+WV/OYpf6NL3VjF3vyqUtVnfhnMQD/X8lQ//iqBRIYdm5iHPrFhiqC0W3Sd/HBpbzHDoVF4as3dtuy7t58FKxLfsUrKnzK1QGsiorD9b2X4M9ikl4hoWpzFAsgEChI9kEAJvFlS5eLxZi3MrlKNyzlciTRbKG8HY7hWbO72Pke+/o3nAu7K0aIHZsJkKWhxsHUnKWIKGN5flMLI/WxE7cjUSP+7uSp04xcRcoHkCq3Ny3/dLK3utrwFw==/" data-reactid=".olvb8xc740.1.2.0.0.0.2.0.1.2.1" style="display: none !important;"></div></div>

Now, I have create this file .lua

script.lua

Code: Select all

function Initialize()

	msMeasureGetText = SKIN:GetMeasure('MeasureGeText')
	
end
	

function Update()


	sText = msMeasureGetText:GetStringValue()

        sTextString = string.match(sText, ".-text%-restricted\".->(.-)<.-") or string.match(sText, ".-text%-body\">(.-)<.-") 
	
        SKIN:Bang('!SetOption', 'MeterText', 'Text', sTextString)

			
end
but it freezes Rainmeter and I have to use the task manager to close it.

How can I solve?

Thanks in advance

	SKIN:Bang('!SetOption', 'MeterText', 'Text', sTextString or "")
end
Also, set your script measure to UpdateDivider=-1 and have it update using FinishAction=[!UpdateMeasure "YourScriptMeasure" "#CURRENTCONFIG#"]

Thank you smurfier, it works except for the SKIN:Bang, the text does not appear.

MeterText is

Code: Select all

[MeterText]
Meter=String
X=0
Y=0
I don't understand why :confused: :confused:

I understand. I forgot to set "DynamicWindowSize = 1" under [Rainmeter] section.
