Insert Variable in Regular expression

Hi Everyone,

I have a variable strVariable2 which is a dynamic variable.

I wish to use strVariable2 as a match and remove from strVariable1

I was trying the following regular expression but doesn’t work.

Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(strVariable1, “[\b”+strVariable2+“\b]”, “”)

Please help.

Hey @CGhoST

You can please go with normal String Replace method.

str_OriginalText.Replace(str_DynamicText, String.Empty)

Hope this helps



Can you try the following expression to escape special characters of regex?

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(strVariable1, "\b"+System.text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Escape(strVariable2)+"\b", "")


System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(strVariable1, "("+strVariable2+")", "")

It worked.

Thank you
