Regular Expressions Example (c#) – CSharp

csharp

The following example shows the use of Regular Expresssions in C#.This program has basic validation scripts for validation easily useable in all programs.

using System.Text.RegularExpressions;
using System;
class Validation
{
public static void Main()
{
String strToTest;
Validation objValidate=
new Validation();
Console.Write(“Enter a String to Test for Alphabets:”);
strToTest=Console.ReadLine();
if(objValidate.IsAlpha(strToTest))
{
Console.WriteLine(“{0} is Valid Alpha String”,strToTest);
}
else
{
Console.WriteLine(“{0} is not a Valid Alpha String”,strToTest);
}
}
// Function to test for Positive Integers.
public bool IsNaturalNumber(String strNumber)
{
Regex objNotNaturalPattern=
new Regex(“[^0-9]”);

new Regex(“0*[1-9][0-9]*”);

Regex objNumberPattern =
new Regex(“(” + strValidRealPattern +”)|(” +
trValidIntegerPattern + “)”);
return !objNotNumberPattern.IsMatch(strNumber) &&!objTwoDotPattern.IsMatch
strNumber) && !objTwoMinusPattern.IsMatch(strNumber) && objNumberPattern.IsMatch(strNumber);
}
// Function To test for Alphabets.
public bool IsAlpha(String strToCheck)
{
Regex objAlphaPattern=
new Regex(“[^a-zA-Z]”);
return !objAlphaPattern.IsMatch(strToCheck);
}
// Function to Check for AlphaNumeric.
public bool IsAlphaNumeric(String strToCheck)
{
Regex objAlphaNumericPattern=
new Regex(“[^a-zA-Z0-9]”);
return !objAlphaNumericPattern.IsMatch(strToCheck);
}
}

There is another simple way to perform these validation think of it while the next article comes.
