How to check if the string contains two characters/alphabets or not

Hi All,

I want to check if my strings contains a “+” sign and two characters/alphabets or not.

string can be like this :- ‘26 | 32’!F8+‘26 | 32’!F12

Here the condition satisfies like it contains a “+” sign and two F’s . Like this I have to check others strings too. How should I achieve this?

Please help

Hello @Karan28,

Use if condition like this, StrVar.Contains("+") and StrVar.Contains(“F”)

StrVar.Contains(“F”) - This cant be because it should be dynamic and any characters can come so I have to check two characters/alphabets present or not . It can be between A-Z

Okay so you want to check aplhabets in the string right??

You can use IsMatches Activity and Pass the Pattern Like this [A-Za-z]+ this will return boolean value if your string contains any Alphabets it’ll throw you True message

as you can see, i’ve used sample expression to identify only alphabets!

Give a try and let me know!

Hi Yes I got your solution , But I have to get true only if it have two or more than two alphabets.

It should return false in one alphabet
