View Full Version : Validation

Hi all,
I am trying to figure out how to make my expression validator validate all styles of the word "yellow"
is there another way to do this rather than type in every possible combination?

Hey alykins,

If you are using a Regex object, you can just append "/i" to your regular expression. Google "Regex + ignore case". If not, just convert your string to either upper or lower case. Don't type in every possible combination, that's just silly :).

Some more detail on this (sorry wasn't in here before) I am developing on MS Visual Studio 10 and using their built in "regular expression validator"... now in the ValidationExpression I have [a-zA-Z] which according to all of the resources I have found should allow for all char a-z and A-Z but no matter what it throws me an error... so that is why i want to allow for any combo... so if joe schmoe types in AAron lYkins I want this to be valid... Thank you for your reply- it does give me an easy way to handle the data in my DB (haven't gotten that far, but if I waqnt uniform look in my DB i will have to do conversions in my string :thumbsup:

anyways... are you familiar (or anyone else for that matter) with VS <asp:RegularExpressionValidator> control object?
