Need help on Regex

Hi,

I need to replace all spaces in a square bracket with understores.
Does anybody know the regular expression to do that? For example,
[Employee First Name] will become [Employee_First_ Name].

Thanks in advance!!

Probably the easiest approach is to match on

\[([^]]*)\]

and then use the Replace method (that takes a MatchEvaluator delegate)
to replace all blanks in the match text.
