RegExp problem, remove iframe

Post by guidoolijslager » Wed May 20, 2020 10:38 am

Hello,

I have a problem to replace tekst in a string with a regular expression.
The regular expression works on https://regex101.com (see enclosed picture). I found it on the Internet.
I can't get it to work in my script, it does nothing.
I tried many variations.

dummyTekst = dummyTekst.replace(/(?:<iframe[^>]*)(?:(?:\/>)|(?:>.*?<\/iframe>))/g, "");

Below the tekst to be cleaned example:

En het gaat steeds sneller. In de periode van 1996 tot 2015 is het areaal ruim 5% kleiner geworden, blijkt uit cijfers van het CBS. <iframe class=localfocusvisual" frameborder="0" style="width:100%;height:400px;overflow:hidden" src="https://localfocus2.appspot.com/5e0dc97bddf92"></iframe> Ruim de helft van die 125.000 ha voor de landbouw verloren hectares kreeg woningbouw als nieuwe bestemming. <iframe class="localfocusvisual" frameborder="0" style="width:100%;height:400px;overflow:hidden" src="https://localfocus2.appspot.com/5e0dc996cea71"></iframe> Iets meer dan de helft van de landbouwgrond in 2018 was grasland.

What is wrong with my script? The iframe tags with the text inside has to be removed.

Thanks in advance,

regards,
Guido

Personally, I would have preferred to use this:
dummyTekst = dummyTekst.replace(/<iframe.+?><\/iframe>/g, "");

But unfortunately, Switch Regular expressions don't support the lazy quantifier (the "+?"), so it doesn't work. You can see what Switch regex supports in the documentation:
https://www.enfocus.com/manuals/UserGui ... sions.html

I have a very ugly solution which works in your test:
dummyTekst = dummyTekst.replace(/<iframe.{3,180}><\/iframe> ?/g, "");

Basically, I assume that the amount of text will always be between 3 and 180 characters. If you can be sure that the text of the iframe will always be more or less the same length, then this can be a workable solution.

Hi Padawan,

thanks for your reply.
The solution worked for me. :)

Do you also have an solution to quick test the regular expression from Switch?

I used a script to test it, I think in your use case this is the only option.

New problem with regexp.
I want to filter out <blockquote.........blockquote> See text below.

The script beneath doesn't work:

theBody = theBody.replace(/<blockquote.{3,8000}><\/blockquote> ?/g, "");

The text contains about 7402 characters.

What is wrong about the script?

Hmm.. What's the result you get in Switch? I can't check right now myself, but looking at the code, one problem is that '.{3,8000}' matches everything after it, including </blockquote> so it will match text after that, too, if the character count allows.

Unfortunately Switch scripts don't support lookahead (unless you can use nodejs with Switch 2020...). You could try to get around that if you have a character that doesn't exist in the text anywhere, e.g. 'ø':

Code: Select all

theBody = theBody.replace(/<blockquote/g,'ø').replace(/<\/blockquote> ?/g,'ø').replace(/ø[^ø]{3,8000}ø/g, "");
So here I first replace blockquote tags with ø and then replace everything between the two ø's by looking for "all characters except ø".

The code didn't work.
I did replace the first en last blockquote but then nothing happened.
See below.

The first blockquote starts after de text:

Dat zijn fritesaardappelen die eigenlijk bedoeld waren voor de horeca, maar door gedwongen sluitingen van cafés en restaurants onverkocht bleven. De aardappelen gaan voor 99 cent per 2,5 kilo over de toonbank.Volgens de POC worden op de markt voor rond de 19 cent per kilo fritesaardappelen ingekocht, wat onder de kostprijs ligt. Er zou pas van echte steun sprake zijn als Lidl per kilo 25 cent zou betalen, aldus de belangenvereniging.

Re: RegExp problem, remove iframe

I also couldn't get it to work using regular expressions. I found an alternative way:

Code: Select all

	var theBodySplitted = theBody.split(/<\/?blockquote>?/);
	var theResult = "";
	for (var i=0;i<theBodySplitted.length;i++) {
		// Check if index is even
		if (i%2 == 0) {
			theResult = theResult + theBodySplitted[i];
		}
	}
	
	s.log(-1, theResult);
Basically I split the text on the blockquote open and close tags and keep the parts which have even indexes in the splitted array.

Thanks @Padawan, that's much cleaner and easier, somehow I just had my mind fixed in the idea that the solution has to use regexp :roll:
