Get the word in between two words using Regex

Hi all,

i have the string below, its a path to an image and i need to get the name of the image


the word i need is IM-0019-0001 and please note this word changes all the time but everything else stays the same

Thanks in advanced

Here is a pattern:


for this kind of search I’d tend use Path.GetFileName

You can then use on the resulting match (MyMatch):


or Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension

hey buddy @SenzoD
i hope your doing this in for each loop you can do this
use assign value like this strVar = path.GetFileName(item).split("."c)(0)


@SenzoD -
Insted of writting regex logic to get the file name -
Crate a variable ex fileName
fileName = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(“C:\Users\SenzoD\Desktop\Automation-Project101\SampleImages\IM-0019-0001.jpeg”)
