Global Property (VBScript)
Updated: March 2009
Sets or returns a Boolean value that indicates if a pattern should match all occurrences in an entire search string or just the first one.
The following code illustrates the use of the Global property (change the value assigned to Global property to see its effect):
Function RegExpTest(patrn, strng) Dim regEx, Match, Matches, s ' Create the regular expression. Set regEx = New RegExp regEx.Pattern = patrn regEx.IgnoreCase = True regEx.Global = True ' Do the search. Set Matches = regEx.Execute(strng) ' Iterate through the Matches collection. s = "" For Each Match in Matches s = s & "Match found at position " s = s & Match.FirstIndex & ". " s = s & "Match Value is '" s = s & Match.Value & "'." s = s & vbCRLF Next RegExpTest = s End Function MsgBox(RegExpTest("is.", "IS1 is2 IS3 is4"))
