System.Text namespaces

The System.Text and System.Text.RegularExpressions namespaces contain types for character encoding, string manipulation, and processing text using regular expressions.

This topic displays the types in the System.Text and System.Text.RegularExpressions namespaces that are included in the .NET for Windows Store apps. Note that the .NET for Windows Store apps does not include all the members of each type. For information about individual types, see the linked topics. The documentation for a type indicates which members are included in the .NET for Windows Store apps.
