View Full Version : How to find character in a String

01-31-2008, 08:11 AM
This has probably been asked before, and I apologize for asking again.

Say I have a 1-character String (I can switch to char if it makes things easier), and I want to know if the String contains "0" - "9", is there something like variable.contains("0123456789") that I can use?

I've tried searching, but I don't know the keywords. I'm still searching right now though. Sorry for the newb-ness. ^^

Character.isDigit("0".charAt(0)); // true

The \d control matches a single digit. Read the javadoc on Pattern for more info.

Pattern p = Pattern.compile("\\d"); //double backslash to escape the escape character
p.matcher("0").matches(); //true
p.matcher("9").matches(); //true
p.matcher("99").matches(); //false
p.matcher("a").matches(); //false

I used the charAt & isDigit method.

Thank you so much, both of you :)
