Regular Expression

Can someone please show me how to create a regular expression to do the
following

My text is set to
[vbl] MyColumn{1, 100} Test

I want a regular expression that sets the text to the following
[vbl] testMyColumn{1, 100}Test

Basically I want the regular expression to add the word test infront of the
word MyColumn and also remove 4 spaces after } and the word Test.

Thanks

> My text is set to

I want a regular expression that sets the text to the following
[vbl] testMyColumn{1, 100}Test


The pattern is:

string pattern = @"(\[vbl] )(MyColumn\{\d+ , \d+\})(\s+)(Tes t)";

and you should use a MatchEvaluator that returns the propper string.

Hope that helps,

Hi Buddy,

I think you can do something like this:

string str="[vbl] MyColumn{1, 100} Test";
Regex rg1=new Regex("\\s{4}") ;
string [] collection=rg1. Split(str);
Regex rg2=new Regex("My");
string new1=rg2.Replac e(collection[0],collection[1].ToLower());
string new2=new1+colle ction[1];
MessageBox.Show (new2);

Hope this helps,

Hi Buddy,

Net Framework provides System.Text.Reg ularExpressions namespace for us to
work with Regular Expression.
You can get a simple general introduction of ".NET Framework Regular
Expressions" at the link below:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/cpguide/htm
l/cpconcomregular expressions.asp

But if you want to get a detailed reference of it, you can refer to the
JScript .NET's "Regular Expression Syntax" section, link:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/jscript7/ht
ml/jsreconbackrefe rences.asp

Finally, there is a web site special for Regular Expression, you can get a
tutorial from it at:
http://www.regular-expressions.info/tutorial.html

If I misunderstand your meanning, please feel free to tell me.

Best regards,

Hi, I am replaceing a big string using different regular expressions (see some example at the end of the message). The problem is whenever I apply a "replace" it makes a new copy of string and I want to avoid that. My question here is if there is a way to pass either a memory stream or array of "find", "replace" expressions or any other way to avoid multiple copies of a string. Any help will be highly appreciated
