Hi Experts,

Well, I need to do something to identify web links in a text using delphi xe.
For example, if I have a text like this:

"Hi, please visite my web sites: www.myweb1.com , myweb2.com"

I need to do a function to get only the web links (2 in this case)

Some idea
Thanks

Yeah,
use regular expressions to get a list of matches for an URL-pattern... (see the ListWebLinks example below)...

I got the regular expression in the ListWebLinks by googling... you might want to tweak it depending on how accurate you need the results to be...

/Hypo
unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls, RegularExpressions;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Memo1: TMemo;
    Memo2: TMemo;
    procedure Memo1Change(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure ListWebLinks(AText : TStrings; ALinks : TStrings);
var i : integer;
    aRegEx : TRegEx;
    aMatches : TMatchCollection;
begin
  aRegEx := TRegEx.Create('((http|ftp|https):\/\/)?[\w\-_]+(\.[\w\-_]+)+([\w\-\.,@?^=%&:/~\+#]*[\w\-\@?^=%&/~\+#])?');
  aMatches := aRegEx.Matches(AText.Text);
  for i := 0 to aMatches.Count-1 do
    ALinks.Add(aMatches.Item[i].Value);
end;

procedure TForm1.Memo1Change(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Memo2.Lines.Clear;
  ListWebLinks(Memo1.Lines, Memo2.Lines);
end;

end.
