Hi,

I want to Remove Bracket and Its Value.

I have 3 functions to do it.

Public Shared Function Remove_Bracket_And_Its_Value(ByVal strData As String) As String

        Dim strValue As String = ERV_Global.Get_Value_Inside_Bracket(strData)

        strData = Replace(strData, strValue, "")

        strData = Remove_Bracket(strData)

        Return strData

    End Function

Could we make it simple the above function?

Thank you.

Public Shared Function Get_Value_Inside_Bracket(ByVal strData As String) As String
 
        If strData.Trim = "" Then Return ""
 
        Dim sep() As Char = New Char() {"(", ")"}
        Dim result() As String = strData.Split(sep)
 
        Return result(1)
 
    End Function
 
 
 Public Shared Function Remove_Bracket(ByVal strData As String) As String
 
        strData = Replace(strData, ")", "")
        strData = Replace(strData, "(", "")
 
        Return strData
 
    End Function

Maybe this way
    Public Shared Function Remove_Bracket(ByVal strData As String) As String
        Return strData.Replace(")", "").Replace("(", "")
    End Function

Hi jpaulino,

My main target is below function:

Public Shared Function Get_Value_Inside_Bracket(ByVal strData As String) As String
 
        If strData.Trim = "" Then Return ""
 
        Dim sep() As Char = New Char() {"(", ")"}
        Dim result() As String = strData.Split(sep)
 
        Return result(1)
 
    End Function


ie.  CustCode (Char(6)) ----> CustCode

Thank you.

Remove anything inside bracket and its bracket.

Try this way
    Public Shared Function Remove_Bracket_And_Its_Value(ByVal strData As String) As String
        Dim posStart As Integer = strData.IndexOf("("c)
        Dim posEnd As Integer = strData.IndexOf(")"c)
 
        While (posStart <> -1 AndAlso posEnd <> -1)
            strData = strData.Remove(posStart, posEnd - posStart + 1)
            posStart = strData.IndexOf("("c, posStart)
            If posStart <> -1 Then
                posEnd = strData.IndexOf(")"c, posStart)
            Else
                posEnd = strData.IndexOf(")"c)
            End If
 
        End While
 
        Return strData.Replace("(", "").Replace(")", "")
    End Function
