Regex.IsMatch Method (String, String)

Indicates whether the regular expression finds a match in the input string using the regular expression specified in the pattern parameter.

Namespace: System.Text.RegularExpressions
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public static bool IsMatch (
	string input,
	string pattern
)
public static boolean IsMatch (
	String input, 
	String pattern
)
public static function IsMatch (
	input : String, 
	pattern : String
) : boolean

Parameters

input

The string to search for a match.

pattern

The regular expression pattern to match.

Return Value

true if the regular expression finds a match; otherwise, false.

The two static IsMatch methods are equivalent to constructing a Regex object with the specified regular expression pattern and calling the instance method IsMatch. The static methods are provided to allow an isolated, single use of a regular expression without explicitly creating a Regex object.
