String.Split with with tab as separator

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I should read the substrings of this file:

1	1	-1738.20118241	6787.03549108	
2	2	-1803.20118241	6759.73549108	
3	3	-2193.20118241	6759.73549108	

I haved used the tab control "\t" as the separator (there is a tab character between the columns):

      Dim separator() As String = {"\t"}
      Console.WriteLine("separator(0) = {0}", separator(0))
        ' Open the file to read from.
        Using sr As StreamReader = File.OpenText(nomeFile)
          Do While sr.Peek() >= 0
            'Dim line As New StringBuilder
            Dim stringline As String
            Dim stringarray As String()
            Dim x, y, canale

string.Split - not all characters allowed as separator



I am working on a site where I use the Split function on a string.

To make sure I used a separator character that I do not use anywhere in the data I selected the character '£'.

This worked fine in Firefox and Safari, but in IE8 I get an 'Index out of range' error, so apparently the '£' character is not handled correctly.

I changed the separator to ';', and then it works fine.

Split string using Regex with escape sequences

What is the regex to split a string using the delimiter ';', but not split on '\;' ? Backslash would be my escape character in my split string, so finding '\;' would not split, but '\\;' would split. For example I want a regex that would split the following:     "aaa;bb;cccc\;dd\;eee\\;ff\\;ggg\\\;hhh" into the following string array:     aaa     bb     ccc\;dd\;eee\\     ff\\     ggg\\\;hhh   Thanks!   -Sylvain

Split a String from a listbox to enter data in a table


Currently, I have a listbox that the selected items are inserted into the database by a string. Now I need to add a new feature that the searches are suppose to be postback individually so the selected values from the listbox need to be inserted into the database individually so the search can work. Is it possible to split an string into separate variables or into an array?

split string sql server 2005



I have a table called SubjectRank that provides subject and it's ranking.

I have a string that can be in any format. It can be 'hello cat, how -are you lion?' or 'yes horse'. In short it can be received in any manner and i have no control on how user sends the string.

What I need to do is check if the string contains any words in the subject column. If yes I need to return that word.

In addition if the string contains more than one subject from the table than I must check the ranking and return the value with the highest ranking. (1 lowest) So if the string contains 'hello cat, how -are you lion?' the sp must return the word lion.


How can I achieve this?
