C# - Regular Expression To Replace Quotation Marks In HTML Tags Only?

Mar 15, 2010

I have the following string:

<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.

What I'm interested in is a regular expression that will accept HTML input and remove all attributes inside the tag while leaving the tag intact. For example I want this...

Databases :: Double Quotation Marks In SQL Statement?

May 27, 2010

I'm having problem getting the syntax right for an SQL statement for a Progress database. I have the column "Resource" which is a reserved word and according to the Openedge SQL Reference I can only use reserved words if I delimit them with double quotation marks.

So how do I write this line...

Dim comm As New OdbcCommand("SELECT Resource FROM PUB.ActOper WHERE CreDate > TO_DATE ('05/24/2010')", conn)

...with double quotes around Resource? I've tried a bunch of different combinations but I get "Expression expected" or "valid continuation expected" or something similar.

MVC :: Regular Expressions For Limited HTML Tags?

Jan 7, 2011

I want a limited amount of html tags for the user to be able to put in my form and by looking at the posts, regular expressions seem to be the way forward. I don't want to use javascript or 3rd party as this is for an assignment at university.

The examples I have found seem to be set out differently than mine with using asp id identifiers whereas my code below is set out differently so I am unsure if I can use these examples.

C# - Check Text For HTML With Regular Expression?

Nov 23, 2010

This is slightly different to most questions regarding HTML tags in strings - I want to add HTML!

I'm using a WYSIWYG editor which produces some eratic results. What im looking to do is to check the string it produces and check whether there are any sentences that aren't wrapped in a <p></p> tag. Typical strings could be:

Example 1

<p>Hello, this is string 1</p>

But string two doesnt appear to be in a <p> tag.

Example 2

None of this text is in <p> tags.

Example 3

Single line of text, again not in a <p> tag.

Could this be done using a regular expression?
