Regular Expression to Match


Here is the kind of text I want to match via a regular Expression

The id="dgSchedule" is always present in the TAG but its location may differ

The table is span over multiple line/contains white spaces/tabs...

I have the regular expression to match the start and end tag respectively over a single line

\<table .*\>


The problem is to match the whole table span over multiple lines

	<tr class="blackbar" align="center" style="background-color:#7FB4DE;font-family:Verdana;font-weight:bold;height:20px;">

Regular Expression for looking for Colons (:) in a string

Hi I am really struggling with this! Using the regular expression validator I created an expression, thus "\:" to show an error message if the user tries to enter in a name that contains a colon.

Regular expression - exclude certain string

Hi all,I have the following regular expression replacement:<add key="^/([^/]*)\.aspx\?" value="/default.aspx?pagename=$1&"/>What this is used for is URL re-writing, i.e. if a page comes in with the path "/test.aspx", it goes to the actual path which is "/default.aspx?pagename=test"This works fine, but it catches all page names. I would like to exclude a particular page name so it is not rewritten, for example if the page was called "exclude.aspx" it would not rewrite to "/default.aspx?pagename=exclude" but stay as "exclude.aspx".How do I modify ^/([^/]*)\.aspx\?so it excludes a certain page name?Thanks!

How to use Regular Expression to find a particular pattern and its index in the string??



I need some help here. I have a document containing some string like the following:


Now what I need is that I need to extract this "BusinessGoal" which as you can see, is 32 characters ahead after "-" (hyphen) and change it's case to uppercase.

The real challange is that, This "BusinessGoal" should only be replaced only and only where there is "Ref-<any 32 characters>" before it and not all. So if I find something like TypeName = "BusinessGoal"  it will be simply ignored.

So how am I going to make that reg Ex. I think it would be a combination of Regex and String Api. 

Kindly help me out.

Thanks and regards

'Test Column Criteria'

Can we use regular expression to match numbers not preceded by a specified set of characters


I have been trying to come up with a RegEx that would match numbers (including decimals and negative numbers) that are not preceded by a specified set of characters. For example:

Specified set of characters (not including comma): c, t

Input string: “This c2 is one element. And t-4a, d25, c2.54, v4.28, q58 are other elements”

Desired result (the numbers not preceded by c and t):

The pattern I tried: [^ct](-?\d+\.?\d*|\.\d+)

The matches I got (Note: I fetched the results from Group 1):


I don’t want the numbers in bold to be returned since in t-4a the integer -4 is preceded by t, and in c2.54, 2.54 is preceded by c.

Can we refine the above pattern or is it even possible?

Thank you.
