Regex for Rainmeter

Posted on 2014-10-21
Last Modified: 2014-10-21
Can someone please help with the Regexp below. I am using the webparser plugin in Rainmeter to pull now watching data from plex.

RegExp=(?siU)<Part container=.*\\(.*)".*<User id="1".*title="(.*)"

01=> Videos\TV Shows\24\Season 07\24 - 7x04 - Day 7 1100 A.M. - 1200 P.M
02=> chaoticmaster

I would like it to be:

 01=>24 - 7x04 - Day 7 1100 A.M. - 1200 P.M
 02=> chaoticmaster

Also is there anyway to get the code to the Regex based on the number of users.

So results would be:

01=> 24 - 7x04 - Day 7 1100 A.M. - 1200 P.M
02=> chaoticmaster
03=> Airplane II (1982)
04=> johndoe

I captured the user count information in a previous parse called ConnectedUsers

I don't quite follow what you're asking in the second part but this change should give the results you want in the first part of your question.  Rainmeter regex plugin doesn't seem to follow normal patterns - regex engines are almost always greedy so you're original regex should have given the results you want.
RegExp=(?siU)<Part container=.*\\([^\\]*)".*<User id="1".*title="(.*)"

Using ozo correct REGEX below. I modified it slightly for my needs.

I will set a variable:
get=<Part container=.*\\([^\\]*)\.\w{3,4}".*<User id="1".*title="(.*)".*

When 1 User is connected:

When 2 Users are connected:

Part two of my question was asking if it is possible to have one REGEX that can capture all the data for indiscriminate of the number of users . The XML data will always be in the same predictable sequence.

What do you mean using ozo's correct REGEX?  His regex is identical to the one I provided (just minus the Regexp=).

It probably is not possible unless what you have supports array repeated captures.  In perl, you should be able to do something like:
my @cap = m{(?:<Part container=.*\\([^\\]*)\.\w{3,4}".*<User id="1".*title="(.*)".*)+}si;

However, I don't think that will work for you (you have "perl" listed as a zone but the syntax of Rainmeter/webparser is definitely different.
