Problem: I want to check for the following strings using regExpression:
1) Main-xxxxx-Accepted 2) Main-xxx xxx-Accepted
I used the below
String regEx = 'Main-[aA-zZ-]*-Accepted';
Pattern.matches(regEx,'Main-SUBMITTED-Accepted')); results in **TRUE**
It works fine for Main-SUBMITTED-Accepted. But it fails for a word with spaces (non submitted)
Pattern.matches(regEx,'Main-NOT SUBMITTED-Accepted')); results in **FALSE**
I tried the below ones. Nothing works
String regEx = 'Main-[aA-zZ-\\s]*-Accepted';
String regEx = 'Main-[aA-zZ-\s]*-Accepted';
How do I check for words with spaces?
String regEx = 'Main-[a-zA-Z0-9- ]*-Accepted';
[aA-zZ-\s] means “any character that is either an a, or a character in the range A through z (which contains several non-letters, incidentally), or a character in the range Z through \s (which is an illegal range, apparently ignored by Salesforce).
