Hi kravindra;

This regex pattern should do what you want.

String pattern = @"\d{1,12}\.\d\d";

String pattern = @"\d{1,12}\.\d\d";

this expression is not accepting numbers.

I want a regular expression that should accept 12 numeric number and decimal point .
after decimal point it should accept 2 decimal only.

eg:123456789012.22
12.22
33.88
55555.88
