Hi Experts,

How can I replace "{" and / or "}" in my string with spaces " " ?
I have tried some things :

Regex.Replace(mystr, @"}", @""); and
my(mystr).Replace('{', ' ');

It does not help.

Thank you.

fpoyavo,

string functions do not modify the string itself. If you'd use:

mystr = Regex.Replace(mystr, @"}", @"");

then it would be replaced.

Try

string test = "name{-}microsoft";
test = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(test, @"[{\}]", " ");


Cheers,

string s  = "How can I replace { and / or } in my string with spaces   ?";
Console.WriteLine("String before Replace : " + s);
s = s.Replace("{" , " ").Replace("}", " ").Replace("/"," ");
Console.WriteLine("String after Replace : " + s);

and heres the output:
 
String before Replace : How can I replace { and / or } in my string with spaces   ?
String after Replace : How can I replace   and   or   in my string with spaces   ?

Cheers!

myString = "This is a test.";
