Help with PHP Regex...

I am using the following regex to extract tags from text that appear in curly brackets {}. It works fine if the only text is the tag, such as {img:Src} but if there is anything else in there it doesn't work. so '{img:src} and text' doesn't work.
$value = '{img:Src} some text {border:Solid} more text {img:Lrg}';
preg_match_all ('/^\{.*\}$/', $value, $foo);
trigger_error(print_r($foo, true));
//Should be an array of 3 items: {img:Src}, {border:Solid}, {img:Lrg}

Try removing the ^ and $ from it.

This seems to work.

$rgx = '/\{(.*?)\}/';
$value = '{img:Src} some text {border:Solid} more text {img:Lrg}';
preg_match_all ($rgx, $value, $foo);
