Dim rg As New RegEx
I found this RegEx on the web… but it seems to return TRUE regardless of what I pass it…
123 returns TRUE… expected
www.rdS.com returns true. NOT expected.
doesn’t it need http as well as https???
Patterns within Xojo should not contain delimiters like “/” and will not recognize trailing switches ("/i"
at the end of the pattern, meaning “case-insensitive”).
That seems to work fine.
To be clear, other languages like perl or PHP require the pattern to be surrounded by delimiters like “/pattern/”. With the RegEx class, you just need “pattern”, and any delimiters would be considered part of the pattern.
Thanks… I did copy that from a PHP oriented site.
and yes… that does work
The tokens “https?” means “h-t-t-p, then, optionally, s” (signified by the “?” after the “s”). It would match both “http” and “https”.
The “|” after that section means “or”, so it would also match the “ftp” that follows.
perfect… no matter how hard I try I just cannot wrap my brain around anything beyond simple RegEx…
