    Default IsRegExp in MJS

    Hi ,


    I am using IsRegExp in MJS for the first time . to find a match if the input(string) column contains
    [g-zG-Z]




    var5="//[g-zG-Z]"


    Alert(isRegExp(col1, reg5 + "Matches")

    this is not working.

    could anyone please give the correct expression



    thanks in advance

    Default

    They are Java RegEx... different from Perl or grep regex.

    Try http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutor...sential/regex/ for help.

    Not sure what you are trying to accomplish with the leading //
    You syntax would be close (ignoring the // ) if you were trying to match one character, rather than "contains"

    Contains would be more like ".*[g-zG-Z].*"
