Removing brackets [] inside a string

I have the following string:
“- [RPUIN-01/31/2023 12:38:32 PM] Contact ABC TEST - [ TEST UIPOMIN-01/31/2023 12:38:52 PM]”

I only want to have the part outside the brackets:
“Contact ABC TEST”

I’m not able to remove the brackets…

Thank you for the help

Welcome to the forum

we can do with regex and later trim the result:

Use regex:


Then trim it

Can you please send me the UiPath syntax with Regex?

strPattern = (?<=\]).*(?<=\[)

Assign Activity
strResult = System.Text.RegularExpressions(YourStringVar, strPattern).Value.Trim

You can also refer to the linked CheatSheet

Thanks for your help !!

sDescription = “- [SADMIN-01/31/2023 12:38:32 PM] Contact ABC TEST - [ TEST SADMIN-01/31/2023 12:38:52 PM]”
sPattern = (?<=]).*(?<=[)

Please find the attached syntax that worked for me.
sResult = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(sDescription, sPattern).Value.Trim

Hi @madhabhazra0

Give a try with

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(strInput, "(?<=\]\s)(.*?)(?=\s-\s\[)").Value.Trim
