C# equivalent statement for vb "Like" statement?

Is there a C# "Like" statement for comparing two strings?

if(stringA Like "%diabe%mel %)
do stuff...

Thanks in advance!

the Regex class (in System.Text.Reg ularExpressions ) can do this for you.
For example:

Regex rgx = new Regex("diabe.*m el");
if (rgx.IsMatch(st ringA))
{
// Its a match
}

Thanks, is it possible to have a regex to searches with "in any order" for
the params passed, in one call without creating all the possible word orders
as seperate regex'es?

With the below example, if a user types "diabe mel", find words that match,
basically, "%diab%mel% " as well as "%mel%diab% "

Thanks again for the help!

Sure... use the '|' operator, meaning this|that. So you could use the
regex "diab.*mel|mel. *diab"

Hi Derrick
you can use String.Equals Method which determines whether two String
objects have the same value
string k;
string m;
if (m.equals(k))

I've never needed it before but now I do! Does anyone know if you are able to perform a NOT Like search using Classic ASP ADO? i.e. myData.Filter = "Ref NOT LIKE '*1234*'" by the way this doesn't work!! and neither does myData.Filter = "Ref <> LIKE '*1234*'"

Hi, I need to write a function that should behave like the SQL's "like" operator on a list of words. I was wondering if I can use Regex directly to do this job.
