Split o Substring of get text

I have the next text "Oferta 353 Mecánico Hidráulico Automotriz - Con… \n (70 candidatos inscritos) and i need the number , in this example the number is 70, but the number can be one digit,two digits,three digits

1 Like

Lets assume we can rely on candidatos… and use it as an anchor:


Assign Activity
strValue = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(strText,strPattern).Value.Trim

When an int32 is needed

intValue = CInt(System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(strText,strPattern).Value.Trim)

Is the number always after a ( character? Does it always have “candidatos inscritos” after it?

If so…

System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegEx.Match(yourVar,"(?<=\()(.*)(?= candidatos)")

Assume u have the input string saved in a variable named Strinput

There are two ways to get this

  1. With split method as u want

Use a assign activity like this

Stroutput = Split(Split(Strinput.ToString, “(“)(1).ToString, “ “)(0).ToString.Trim
  1. With Regex method
    Now Use a assign activity like this
Stroutput = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(Strinput.ToString, “(\d+)(?=\scandidatos)”).Value



Hope this helps
