Password reg ex.

Hi All,

I see pleanty of password reg ex, but nothing quite what I need.

Min chars = 6
Max Chars = 12
Must have at least One Number
Must Have at leat One capital letter
Only Letters and numbers allowed but can have Spanish characters. Is it posible to have a locale setting. For example the following chars (Ññ,ÁáÉé) etc.

Any ideas?

I'm assuming you are using the logic on a password screen.  Without working into a fancy Regular Expression, that I don't even know how to create for you.  Have you tried keeping it simple and using a few combined regular expressions to create the final validation?

For instance, you have a RegExValidator that validates the size, another validates that it has one number, another validates it has one capital letter, etc.  The final result will be 4-5 regexvalidators, but it'll be much simpler to debug, and you can give the user a specific error message of what their password doesn't have.

You logic makes good sense. Will try as you suggest.

Many thanks
