Search replace using Regular Expression

P: 1
I am trying to create a regular expression that will search a memo and replace all values that are between "[]" brackets. Example:

static void Main()
string text = @"This is a memo for: [employeeName]. From: [supervisorsName]. This is inregards to [trainingType]\n"
+ " on [Date].";
string pattern = "I NEED THIS INFORMTION";
MatchCollection matches = Regex.Matches(text, pattern,
WriteMatches(text, matches);

static void WriteMatches(string text, MatchCollection matches)
Console.WriteLine("Original text was: \n\n" + text + "\n");
Console.WriteLine("No. of matches: " + matches.Count);
foreach (Match nextMatch in matches)

Please any help would be appreciated
