Help manipulating my String

Posted on 2012-03-29

Last Modified: 2012-04-03
Hello EE,

I have a string like this:

"=SUM(B1+C1+D1)"

What I need to do is each digit I need to increase by 1

so the string need to be at the end:

"=SUM(B2+C2+D2)"

another example:
"=SUM(B4+D5+H11)"

needed result:  "=SUM(B5+D6+H12)"

any idea ? (how to repert the digit then +1 on it etc..)

Try:

Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Dim input As String = "=SUM(B1+C1+D1)"
        Dim result As String = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(input, "\d+", AddressOf ReplacementDelegate)
    End Sub

    Function ReplacementDelegate(ByVal m As System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match) As String
        Dim converted As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(m.Value)

        Return (converted + 1).ToString()
    End Function

End Module

I would handle this by keeping the rows seperate:

int b=5;
int d=6;
int h=11;
String result;

result = print(b,d,h);

b++;
d++;
h++;

result = print(b,d,h);


string print(int b, int d, int h)
{
  return String.Format("=Sum(B{0}+D{1}+H{2}",b,d,h)
}
