Regular Expression for inserting codes at the end of a function

This is a regular expression that i used to insert codes at the end of a function, the original code was created for actionscript 3, and you tweak it a  little to match your language, that is if its a C-based language.

reg  = "("+funcName+"\\([\\s\\S]*?\\)[\\s\\S]*?{[\\s\\S]*?)(?=(})[\\s\\S]*?((protected override|private|public) function))";

re = new RegExp(reg);
newCode = oldCode.replace(re, "$1 " + code);

The regular expression is
(yourFunc([\s\S]*?)[\s\S]*?{[\s\S]*?)(?=(})[\s\S]*?((protected override|private|public) function))

First it finds the function named yourFunc followed by (
Then finds the arguements but stop finding mor, the *?, once it finds the first )
Then it continues to find anything, in as3 this is the : thing, and stops after it finds {
Lastly it finds everything after {, literally everything till the last one and to stop it you have to see the next pattern

(?=(})[\\s\\S]*?((protected override|private|public) function))
First it excludes to include on the results the following results it would find, the ?=
This exclusion starts with } followed by anything, \s\S until it finds the next function declaration.

The groupings
We grouped the results into 2 big groups and since we need everything that came before }, we group the regular expression before it into a big group so that once we substitute we could just use $1 to get all of them back.

Its so hard to explain this stuff on writing and i suggest you to just test them and comment if there is something wrong or there are some area where the regular expression could be enhance. Thanks

Unlockd Android Auto Open

Now that Unlockd has reached its doomed . Here is a script where i just downloaded android tools and automatically have my phone open, I believe you can use this for games that requires constant tapping of the screen (as long as it's not one of the fast tap one as adb has a delay). for i in `seq 1 50`; do # open the phone adb shell input keyevent 26 # keep the phone open for 8 seconds sleep 8 # close the phone adb shell input keyevent 26 # randomised sleep to make it look real sleep $[ ( $RANDOM % 10 ) + 1 ]s done if your phone has passcode for i in `seq 1 50`; do adb shell input keyevent 26 sleep 1 # swipe from bottom to up adb shell input touchscreen swipe 530 1280 1030 480 # enter your passcode adb shell input text <Your passcode> # check button adb shell input keyevent 66 sleep 8 adb shell input keyevent 26 s

How to disable textfield on AS3

This took me 2 hours to find out how to disable textfield on AS3, its not the perfect solution but it seems to be the only solution. private var txtField:Textfield; ... this.txtField = this.getChildByName("txtField"); this.txtField.mouseEnabled = false; this.txtField.tabEnabled = false; and to turn it enable again: this.txtField.mouseEnabled = true; this.txtField.tabEnabled = true; You could also do this //disable input myTextField.selectable = false; myTextField.type = TextFieldType.DYNAMIC; //enable input myTextField.selectable = true; myTextField.type = TextFieldType.INPUT; While this sound cheap coz you have to disable the mouse and the tab of that component and not the component itself, it seems to be the only solution. Thanks Adobe!!!!!!!!
