RegEx Matches with special characters?

Does anyone know how to use Matches with input which might contain special characters, such as “(”, without messing up pattern?

Add a \ before the special character you want to escape in your pattern.

Problem is i don’t know which special character it might contain :frowning:

Well, i don’t know where the special characters are.
I’m trying to match keywords to a page content, and i dont know if the keywords contains special characters or not.

then to validate them we can use this expression in a IF condition like this
System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.IsMatch(yourstringinput.ToString,"(\W)")
if true it will go to THEN part or goes to ELSE part
