I need a regular expression that will find action attributes similar to the following:

action="http://www.test.com/test/"

Basically, I need to find action attributes that have a forward slash before the ending quote.

You should be able to use a pattern of:
"action=""([^\x00]+?\/)"""
The submatch will be what is between the quotes.

That doesn't seem to work. Here is my test.

action="hi/"

Here was the fix:

action=\"([^\x00]+?\/)\"

Just replaced the double quotes with backslashes.

Thanks for you help!!

Sorry about that, I'm used to vb6 (I see now this is vb.net) and I didn't realize you had to do that in .net. In any case, glad to have helped!
