Another quick Apollo App

This post is more than 2 years old.

I'm just loving Apollo. This morning I built a quick regex tester. It only does global style matches, but it is a good first draft. Download it by clicking the Download link below.

In the next version I'll switch to using highlight on the original text instead of a dump of matches. I'll also let you try out replacements as well.

Enjoy my lovely design skills. The code is below for those who are curious.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <mx:ApolloApplication xmlns:mx="" layout="absolute" title="Regular Expression Tester">

<mx:Script> <![CDATA[ private function testRegex():void { var regexStr:String = regex.text; var bodyStr:String = body.text;

results.text = '';

if(regexStr == '' || bodyStr == '') {"Please enter a regex and a body.");

var regexOb:RegExp = new RegExp(regexStr,"g");
var matches:Array = bodyStr.match(regexOb);

if(matches != null && matches.length &gt; 0) {
	for(var i=0; i &lt; matches.length; i++) {
		results.text += matches[i] + "\n";

} ]]> </mx:Script>

<mx:VDividedBox width="100%" height="100%">

&lt;mx:Panel title="Regex" width="100%" height="70" &gt;

	&lt;mx:HBox width="100%" height="100%"&gt;
		&lt;mx:TextInput id="regex" width="100%" height="100%"/&gt; &lt;mx:Button id="tstButton" label="Test Regular Expression" click="testRegex()" height="100%" /&gt;

&lt;mx:Panel title="Body" width="100%"&gt;
	&lt;mx:TextArea id="body" width="100%" height="100%" /&gt;


&lt;mx:Panel title="Matches" width="100%"&gt;
	&lt;mx:TextArea id="results" width="100%" height="100%" editable="false" /&gt;
