Regular expression error

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 16 years ago by Russell Mason

If I use the regular expression (?s)(?i)SELECT.*MyTable on a FindReplace.FindAll using a SearchType of RegularExpression I get an exception 'Unknown regular expression advanced grouping construct'. This is on the (?s) and (?i) values.

Is this something you don't support? If not how can I get these options? I guess I can use MatchCase to ignore case (?i), but how do I include new lines in the . statement (?s)? and any other special (?xx) instruction for that matter?

Hi Russell,

Sorry we support almost all the constructs in the .NET regular expression syntax however don't support switching options within an expression.

For newlines, "(. | \n)" that will find "all" characters.
