Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

Because a single match can involve multiple capturing groups, Match has a Groups property that returns the GroupCollection. The GroupCollection has accessors that return each group. Match inherits from Group so the entire substring matched can be accessed directly. That is, the Match instance itself is equivalent to Match.Groups[0] (Match.Groups(0) in Visual Basic) . The Match object is immutable and has no public constructor.
