Referencing Groups in Regex matches

When referencing groups in regex matches. There is no way in Win Automation to reference the values in the different parentheses directly from a single action.

For example: We have the variable with the value: "Hello Softomotive" and the regex expression: "(Hello )(.*)"

Using a Regex action (for example Parse Text) we store the results in the variable Matches

In UiPath and other software I can reference the value in the first parenthesis by typing Matches(0).Groups(1).value. This would give me "Hello "
Using Matches(0).Groups(2).Value would give me "Softomotive"

This post was created by the Softomotive Support Team. Thank you Thomas Hviid Petersen for the suggestion!”

Winautomation uses .net regex engine, what you wish to di is is regex backrefetence syntax, where token \1 for first capture group ... 1st group within ( ) and \2 ... for 2nd Capture group within ( ) ...etc
