Regular expression

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I need to set up a regular expression to check a series of strings.The following:

1:h2

2-9:div

10-:P

should all evaluate to true. I tried using:

If StringRegExp($teststring, "\A[:digit:]{1,}\-{0,}[:digit:]{0,}\:[:alnum:]{1,}\Z") Then

- string is ok -

Else

- string is not ok -

EndIf

but it doesn't seem to work. Any help gratefully received!
