I'm using RegExp.Replace(string, string, string) to remove some pieces of large strings. But I seem to be having trouble getting it to match "all characters up to and including xxxxx" (which I thought would be ".*xxxxx" but it's not working). I can get it to match more precise segments no problem, but not "all characters up to and including xxxxx" or "xxxxx and all characters after it." Any ideas? Regards, David P. Donahue

Hi, I know this has been asked before, but reading the threads it is still not entirely clear. Deciding which .Replace( ) to use when. Typically if I create a string in a loop I always use a StringBuilder. At present I am porting a VB6 webclass app to VB.NET and therefore I am trying to make it as efficent as possible via the new functionality of VB.NET.

I need to prepare a large text database field to display in an asp.net repeater control. Currently I am replacing all chr(13)'s with a "<br/>" and it works fine. However, now I also want to be able to replace TAB's with "&nbsp;"'s to preserve the user's indentation. My questions are: 1) even though I'll probably look it up before I get a reply.... whats the vb code for TAB character? 2) more importantly; do I have to run this large field...

I need a program that simulates the search-and-replace operation in a text editor. The program is to have only three function calls in main. The first function prompts the user to type a string of fewer than 80 characters. It then prompts the user to type the search-substring of 10 or fewer characters. Finally, it prompts the user to type the replace-substring of 10 or fewer characters. The second function call is the search-and-replace...

I need an elegant way to remove any characters in a string if they are not in an allowed char list. The part cleaning files of the non-allowed characters will run as a service, so no forms here. The list also needs to be editable by the end-user so I'll be providing a form on which they can edit the allowed character list. The end-user is non-technical so asking them to type a regular expression is out.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
