Match Class

Represents the results from a single regular expression match.

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

public ref class Match : public Group
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
public class Match extends Group
public class Match extends Group
Not applicable.

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.

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