Hi!

Here's my attempt (I suck at Regular Expressions)

The only one I couldn't find out how to match was the '|'

#include <array.au3>
$string="s\{sdf//;sdf||l.\<>;/ \ | , < > :; ' [ ] { } + = "
$array=StringRegExp($string,"[=\+\{\}\[\]\';:<>,\\/]{1}",3)
_ArrayDisplay($array)

Broken link? PM me and I'll send you the file!

You can use the escape character '\' before any of those characters, or use \Q...\E to escape all metacharacters. A specific example for what you are trying to search for would help, but this expression will return any of the characters you described:

"[\/|\\|\||\,|\<|\>|\:|\;|\'|\[|\]|\{|\}|\+|\=]"

Little example. Of course you can easily add further signs.

#include<GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("Enter a name for a new folder....", 320, 120, @DesktopWidth / 2 - 160, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 45, -1, 0x00000018); WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES
$file = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 20, 300, 20)
$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 40, 95, 60, 20)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

;~ GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "DB_WM_COMMAND")

Dim $previousText

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $btn Or $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit

    $text = GUICtrlRead($file)
    If $previousText <> $text Then ToolTip("")

    If StringRegExp($text, '\\|/|:|\*|\?|\"|\<|\>|\|') Then
        GUICtrlSetData($file, StringRegExpReplace($text, '\\|/|:|\*|\?|\"|\<|\>|\|', ""))
        DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "MessageBeep", "int", 0xFFFFFFFF) ;Beep
        Local $tooltipPos = WinGetPos($GUI)
        ToolTip("A file name cannot contain any of the following characters:" & @LF & _
                '             \ / : * ? " < > |', $tooltipPos [0] + 160, $tooltipPos [1] + 60, Default, Default, 3)
        $previousText = GUICtrlRead($file)
    EndIf
WEnd

And here is a method that escapes all special characters:

$String = "test [or] example ;)"
$String = StringRegExpReplace($String, '([][{}()|.?+*\\^])', '\\\1')

MsgBox(64, "", "No all special characters are escaped:" & @LF & @LF & $String)

And as for the unsupported characters in file names, there is _StrReplaceUnsupported() UDF UDF in my signature.
