Hey, I have a message board im making and I need to ensure that the user has entered at least one alphanemerical character or symbol. I remember seeing "[a-zA-Z0-9*.*]" where *.* is the reference for symbols but I cant find out what the *.* should be. Also I am only used to using regular expressions in Perl so I dont know how to use them in VBScript as well. Ive seen some elaborate code which employ's RegExp and all this re.whatever and stuff but I need a simple way of testing the contents of the text area to ensure that the user typed in something without getting into too much robust code. I need something simple like a one liner using InStr or CStr or something. Can someone help me out with this please?
I spent all afternoon trying to complete that regular expression so I think this is worth a few points if someone completes it correctly as per what I remember it was.
