I have a string in camel case


and I need to convert it to:

the Dog Jumped

So basically insert a space before each capital letter

I think it should be easy with regular expressions, but the one thing I am not good at is how to use the match in the replacement.

Hi, try:

      string sample = "theDogJumped";
      sample = Regex.Replace(sample, "(?<cap>[A-Z])", " ${cap}");
