I have a text box, where i want to add a parenthesis validator on the client side. Suppose user feeds in a value a-z or A-Z on the text box. It will prompt the user to put the value in parenthesis and if he adds parenthesis, the value is being accepted as is..Please suggest

In this case it will accept alpha numeric characters (0-9A-Za-z)
Any character which is escaped (with the trailing \) it also accepts white-space characters (\s).
All that with a minimum length of 1 and a maxiumum length of 100.

But according to your question, me earlier post is a good answer.

I'm not realy a regex expert though.
Perhaps it's best to post this in the Regular Expression section ??
