I want to determine if the end of a string ends with "_XXXX" where XXXX is an integer or arbitrary length, I believe this should find that match :"_[0-9]+"
I also want to make sure that the match it found is at the end of the string, how do I do that?

jjacksn, you can use \d instead of [0-9]

@"_\d+\Z"

or

@"_\d+$"
