C# - Forum Tags: Can Regex Be Modified To Grab Nested Tags?

Feb 24, 2011

I am building a forum and I want to use forum-style tags to let the users format their posts in a limited fashion.Currently I am using Regex to do this.As per this question:How to use C# regular expressions to emulate forum tags. The problem with this,is that the regex does not distinguish between nested tags.Here is a sample of how I implemented this method:

public static string MyExtensionMethod(this string text){return TransformTags(text);}
private static string TransformTags(string input)
{string regex = @"[([^=]+)[=x22']*(S*?)['x22]*](.+?)[/(1)]";
MatchCollection matches = new Regex(regex).Matches(input);
for (int i = 0; i < matches.Count; i++)
var tag = matches[i].Groups[1].Value;
var optionalValue = matches[i].Groups[2].Value;
var content = matches[i].Groups[3].Value;
Now,if I submit something like [quote] This user posted [quote] blah [/quote] [/quote] it does not properly detect the nested quote.Instead it takes the first opening quote tag and puts it with the first closing quote tag.Do you guys recommend any solutions?Can the regex be modified to grab nested tags?Maybe I shouldn't use regex for this?

Use C# Regular Expressions To Emulate Forum Tags?

Feb 5, 2011

I am building a forum and I want to be able to use simple square bracket tags to allow users to format text. I am currently accomplishing this by parsing the string and looking for the tags. It's very tedious, especially when I run into a tag like this [URL]. Having to parse the attribute, and the value, and make sure it has proper opening and closing tags is kind of a pain and seems silly. I know how powerful regular expressions are but I'm not good at them and they frustrate me to no end. I think an example would get me started. Just a regex for finding tags like [b]bolded text[/b] and tags with attributes like the link

.net Regex To Find Anchor Tags And Replace Their Url?

May 13, 2010

i'm trying to find all the anchor tags and appending the href value with a variable.
for example

<a href="/page.aspx">link</a> will become <a href="/page.aspx?id=2">
<A hRef='http://www.google.com'><img src='pic.jpg'></a> will become <A hRef='http://www.google.com?id=2'><img src='pic.jpg'></a>

I'm able to match all the anchor tags and href values using regex, then i manually replace the values using string.replace, however i dont think its the efficient way to do this.Is there a solution where i can use something like regex.replace(html,newurlvalue)

How To Apply CSS Tags To <li> Tags When Using 4.0 Menu Control

Feb 1, 2011

Is there a way to apply your own CSS tags to <li> tags when using ASP .NET 4.0 menu control? For example, say I have an external style sheet that has tags "class1", "class2", "class3", and etc. I want to apply "class1" to the first menu item. Then if menu item is selected, I want to apply "class2" and if it's not selected, "class3". I played with various 'Static' styles, but just can't get it work. I finally gave up and created my own menu control that extends ASP .NET menu control and provides my own custom rendering. This works, but I'm wondering if there is a way to get it work with built-in menu control.

Firefox Won't Display All Tags?

Mar 5, 2011

I have an issue with Firefox. After creating a new template for my website using <div> tags, i noticed that not all tags are displayed when i preview the site in firefox.

I put the sample template in the following location:


I was able to verify my CSS with the following link: [URL] and it passed without any problems. The html part is correct as well.

My question is how come two div tags: <div class="header9"></div> and <div id="sidebar"></div> are not displayed in firefox. It works fine with explorer but firefox has issues.

Also the background-color for <body> takes over in the middle, even though i've created a <div id="wrapper"> with all divs inside and background color assigned to white.

I've tried developer extension for firefox but still was not able to find the problem.

It's very annoying that simple (basic) tags such <div> could have isssues being displayed. Does anyone know what am i doing wrong and how to fix that issue?

C# - Server Tags In Markup?

Feb 4, 2011

Morning all I have frequently used the old

<asp:Label ID="lblWas" runat="server" Text='<%# XPath("FACEVALUE") %>'></asp:Label>

This type of thing. when I first came across it I loved it, i'm using it again today but not quite so simply. I have a number of extra things I would like to achieve.

Apply formatting to the value. Like Text='<%# string.Format(XPath("FACEVALUE"), "{0:c}") %>'>
<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkBook" runat="server" PostBackUrl='/THEATRE/' + XPath("FACEVALUE")>Book</asp:LinkButton>

For option number 2 the URL is not as I would expect, and for number 1 I cannot get the syntax correct if it's even possible.

I have not been able to find something suitable in google. Hopefully what I am trying to achieve is obvious from the example :)

Get Html Tags From Textbox In C#

Sep 2, 2010

I have a text area in my ASP.NET web application that is used to enter html code. Now there is also an button control, which upon clicking should retrieve just the text placed between certain html tags in the text box. For example:

1) User types html code including tags etc. and clicks the OK button
2) In my code the text from the text area is retrieved and only the part between a <p></p> tag should be saved to a string object.

I can obviously get the text from the text area and attach it to a string object but I am not able to work out how to just get text within a certain html tag like <p></p>

How To Get A Text Enclosed By Two Tags

Oct 14, 2010

I am working with ASP.NET and need to manage with a string typed by the user in order to extract some information. The user enters a normal text, words and numbers, but sometimes he may type a mathematical expression in MATHML, these expressions are always an xml string enclosed by the tag. I want to extract from the typed text every math segment. For example, let's consider the user typed this text:

string input = "My name is Dorry and here is a math expression: <math>---some math1---</math> ah, there is another expression: <math>---some math2---</math> and do not forget this too <math>---some math3---</math>.".

Well, The first regex solution I came up with is this:

string pattern1 = @"<math(.+)</math>";

To get matches I obviousely use:

Regex r = new Regex(pattern1, RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);
string[] res = r.Matches(input);

And it seemd working, too bad, it does not because this expression, instead of getting me an array (using Reges.Matches) filled with three strings ("---some math1---", "---some math2---", "---some math3---"); it gets me an array with one element only: "---some math1--- ah, there is another expression: ---some math2--- and do not forget this too ---some math3---". Can you see? it takes the first and the last and merges everything in the middle WITHOUT CARING of some other or elements in the way!

Well, I suppose this is a well known issue about regular expressions; is there a solution? how to tell the regex engine to be a little more... aware?
