Hi,

I'm trying to search through the following string:

150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for stra.txt
226 Transfer complete
ftp: 568180 bytes sent in 1.06Seconds 535.01Kbytes/sec.

ftp> jj
200 PORT command successful
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for .n/a
226 Transfer complete
ftp: 749238 bytes sent in 0.91Seconds 826.97Kbytes/sec.
ftp> impu
200 PORT command successful
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for j.txt
226 Transfer complete
ftp: 1437528 bytes sent in 2.05Seconds 702.26Kbytes/sec.

I wanted to retrieve the value  of the bytes sents after "ftp:" With help from other experts I managed to do this via the attached code.  What I would like is to use this code below to get every occurance of the bytes sent as at the moment  I think it only finds the first occurance.

Many thanks
Dim a As Match = Regex.Match(s, "(?<=ftp: *)\d+")
                If a.Success Then
                    value = Convert.ToInt32(a.Value)

                Else
                    ' Do nothing
                End If

Alternatively, you can use the Matches() function, and iterate through the resulting MatchCollection object.
Dim a As MatchCollection = Regex.Matches(s, "(?<=ftp: *)\d+")

For Each m As Match In a
     value = Convert.ToInt32(m.Value)
Next
