In C/C++ there is the possibilty to parse strings using the sscanf function. This is neat since you then have the possibility to match complete patterns of text, instead of manually having to parse through every single character in a string.

There must be some easy way to do this i C# also (since I think a lot of people would use this kind of functionallity) but I haven't figured it out yet. Does anyone have any tips/examples?

I believe the Format function is equivelant to sscanf.

String.Format
String.Substring
String.Split
String.Parse

All in msdn

Good luck

String namespace also contains support for regular expressions. Easy for validation!

Sorry CJ_S, but your original answer wasn't good enough (I've allready tried that), and I always promote quick answers....

(You where pretty fast too though....)
