VS 2010 : Removing Characters From A String?

Nov 22, 2011

I need to parse an alphanumeric string leaving the characters "0-9", ".", "/" and space & remove everything else. I use "[^0-9./ ]" as my regex string and it works well. But now I have a couple other conditions that I dont know how to handle with my regex string. I actually only want to keep the "." character if it falls between two digit characters (ie. 3.5), otherwise remove it. And also I need to replace any "-" characters with a space if it falls between two digit characters (ie. 2-1), otherwise remove it.

sParams(0) = "All"
sParams(1) = "State"
sParams(2) = "Insurance"

Regex - .NET: Manipulating TextBox Input: Dash Every 5 Characters And Removing Special Characters?

Dec 21, 2011

Essentially I am trying to replicate the Windows 7 (In-Windows) activation key TextBox form. The Form where it will auto capitalize letters, remove or deny all non alphanumeric characters except dashes every 5 characters that will be auto-input.I assume this can be done with a fairly complicated replacement Regular Expression but I cannot seem to create one to fit the needs.

This is an Example of what I have right now, but it creates an infinite loop as it removes all characters including dashes, than adds a dash, which changes the text and removes the dash again.

Catching And Removing Escape Characters In A Serial Comm Port Program?

May 18, 2010

I have recently developed a serial port communication program to access my hardware firewall and its connected to the device via a converter usb to rs232head plugged to a rs232 to an ethernet cable. this ethernet cable then plugs into the device console port.

my program functions similar to that of TeraTerm. an opensource hyperterminal program written in C++ but i decided to do one for

Alright to cut the story short, i have successfully coded out the program to accept incomming data from the device but however, i'm also receiving ansi escape sequence along with it and i have no idea how i could implement codes to remove these. i have spend 3 weeks trying to look for vt100 emulation codes written in but i found none so far. most are written in c++. here's an image to illustrate the problem which im facing.

The image below is a screenshot taken when the i ran both the programs together. The bottom is tera term 3.1 and the top is my vb project which i made using msdn's example and improved on the codes. basically tera term was able to interpret those escape sequence and display accordingly to that of the vt100 terminal display. I have spent time reading on regular expressions using the inbuilt function regex in visual basic and tried parsing some strings but its not working. i guess its far more complex than i thought.

Error When Getting A Substring Of X Characters Out Of A Parent String Of Less Than X Characters?

Feb 23, 2011

Not sure if too many people know this, but the following line will cause an error:

GroupName.Substring(0, 3) = "jt_"

....if the length of GroupName is less than 3 characters. I always thought it would simply return whatever characters in GroupName, but no, it errors. I must be thinking of the old VB6 days.So, I now have to change the code to:

If (GroupName.Length > 2) Then
If (GroupName.Substring(0, 3) = "jt_") Then

Note that the two comparisons need to be on separate lines. If they are on the same line, such as:

If (GroupName.Length > 2) and (GroupName.Substring(0, 3) = "jt_") Then then the code will still fail as the length command is executed at the same time as the substring command- which will cause the error when the GroupName length is less than 3.Just thought that those of us not aware of this should be!

Removing Space From String?

Jan 16, 2011

I have a string that has three spaces in it.

In the following examples, underscores represent the spaces:



I need to remove just the first space. Now, i tried just replacing the space with nothing, like so:


If s.Contains(" ") Thens = s.Replace(" ", "")End If

But, that removes every space. I also tried .StartsWith, but it still removed every space. I didn't actually expect that to work, but if I hadn't tried it, I wouldn't have actually know.

how to remove just that first space?

program makes strings from webbrowser documenttext.For example

String1 = "<span class""long-title"" title"" Informations here"

Im trying to remove all text before "Informations here" this is what i currently have.

dim mychar as char () = {"<"c, "s"c, "p"c, "a"c, '....thatandlike20moretill.... "e"c, """"c}
string1 = string1.TrimStart(mychar)

(Note that each letter or symbol inbetween the quotations is a part of the string (span = "s" "p"...)Now this works. Not all the time though and its a pain in the .. having to do "letter"c, all the time.. (I got over 10 strings lol) Im wondering if theres a way easier method to remove part of string from the beginning, maybe like still a certen part of the length..
