DataView: Using Regular Expression in RowFilter
Posted on 2008-06-13
I am trying to figure out how to use a regular expression in a dataview's RowFilter. In PHP, it looks like this:
`field` REGEXP '[[:<:]]word[[:>:]]', which will find instances in the MySQL table where "word" has a word boundary on it. This is what I tried in vb.Net:
dv.RowFilter = "[field] REGEXP '\bword\b'" and I also tried dv.RowFilter = "[field] REGEXP '[[:<:]]word[[:>:]]'". Both of these return this error:
Syntax error: Missing operand after 'REGEXP' operator. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks.
