C# - Remove Extra Spaces And Many Tags Using String.Replace() Method?
Dec 11, 2010
I have a long string containing the ,<p> </p> and <br>. I want to clean my string from all these tags and spaces. How it can be done with String.Replace() method. I am doing separately right now, it is working but is there a way to do it at once, without replace() method.
I want to remove all the extra Zeros from a string.For example string is: '5.00560000' then I want to show it like '5.0056'I used Convert.double for this purpose, it is working ok but when the string is '0.0000500' then it is showing '5E-06' which is not ok.
When i request a page using browser / AJAX request i see lot of spaces and newlines which i think must be adding some overhead for retrieving the response as they too belong to characters means bytes and size. right ?
Is there some way it can be removed while sending from the server ? how ? (I am using IIS and asp.net for development)
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)
I have been searching the forum for how to populate a dropdown without "spaces" or "-" but I can not find exactly what I am looking for.Actually the data input by the user contains specaial character and using datasource the dropdown is being populated with the original data but every user has different style to insert data so I want to populate dropdown(within forview) without spaces or dashes, hashes. By making this change I may be able to populate dropdown in an asc or desc order.I know it can be handle from database but I want to do it with some coding technique in vb.net or asp.net.
<div id="mydiv">This is a "div" with quotation marks</div>
I want to use regular expressions to return the following:
<div id='mydiv'>This is a "div" with quotation marks</div>
Notice how the id attribute in the div is now surrounded by apostrophes?
How can I do this with a regular expression?
Edit: I'm not looking for a magic bullet to handle every edge case in every situation. We should all be weary of using regex to parse HTML but, in this particular case and for my particular need, regex IS the solution.
Edit #2: Jens Ameskamp helped to find a solution for me but anyone randomly coming to this page should think long and very hard about using this solution. In my case it works because I am very confident of the type of strings that I'll be dealing with. I know the dangers and the risks and make sure you do to. If you're not sure if you know then it probably indicates that you don't know and shouldn't use this method.
I have a site that uses parameters in the query string to determine what content to display.
page.aspx?id=1 - Main page page.aspx?id=1&p=2 - Main page showing info A page.aspx?id=1&p=3 - Main page showing info B
My issue is that my sitemap contains an entry for page.aspx?id=1, which displays my breadcrumb as it should; however, I obviously don't have an entry for page.aspx?id=1&p=2 so my breadcrumb breaks. I am still on the page.aspx?id=1 page and would like the breadcrumb to display correctly.
Is there a way to remove all the parameters from "&" right? So that my breadcrumb will still display correctly. I've seen options using SiteMapResolveEventHandler but I couldn't get them to work.
I have an entire web page stored in a string variable. I would like to remove all the <a href tags - everything from <a href= to </a> but making sure that all the other text stays intact. also I want to remove <input type=hidden to the > and <input type=submit to the >
I have a textbox where email addresses are displayed at the click of a button. There is one problem, before the first email address there are two empty spaces. Is there any way of getting rid of them? The result looks like this: " emailaddress; emailaddress; emailaddress;"
