c# regular expression to parse MS Open XML fragment

I am looking for an accurate way to parse the following, I am assuming regex or maybe XML parser. This is for a c# application.

examples:

"w:name w:val=\"CALC_OFFICEADDRFULL\"
"w:enabled w:val=\"true\"
"w:calcOnExit w:val=\"false\"
"w:type w:val=\"regular\"

expected result (key value or something)

name,CALC_OFFICEADDRFULL
enabled,true
calcOnExit,false
type,regular

Much appreciated,

-Markus

Please try the following:
var rxKey = new Regex(@"(?<=w:)\w+(?=\s)");
var rxValue = new Regex("(?<=w:val=\\\\\").+(?=\\\\\")");
var tests = new string[]
{
	"\"w:name w:val=\\\"CALC_OFFICEADDRFULL\\\"",
	"\"w:enabled w:val=\\\"true\\\"",
	"\"w:calcOnExit w:val=\\\"false\\\"",
	"\"w:type w:val=\\\"regular\\\""
};

foreach (var test in tests)
{
	Console.WriteLine("{0},{1}", rxKey.Match(test).Value, rxValue.Match(test).Value);
}

Open in new window

Output:
name,CALC_OFFICEADDRFULL
enabled,true
calcOnExit,false
type,regular

Here is another (faster) option with simple substrings:
var tests = new string[]
{
	"\"w:name w:val=\\\"CALC_OFFICEADDRFULL\\\"",
	"\"w:enabled w:val=\\\"true\\\"",
	"\"w:calcOnExit w:val=\\\"false\\\"",
	"\"w:type w:val=\\\"regular\\\""
};

foreach (var test in tests)
{
	var key = test.Substring(3, test.IndexOf(" ") - 3);

	int i = test.IndexOf("\\\"") + 2;
	var value = test.Substring(i, test.Length - i - 2);
	
	Console.WriteLine("{0},{1}", key, value);
}

Sorry,

The debugger through in the \'s (and i had an extra quote)

try

w:name w:val="CALC_OFFICEADDRFULL"
w:enabled w:val="true"
w:calcOnExit w:val="false"
w:type w:val="regular"

Not a problem.  There you go.

Option 1: (Regex)
var rxKey = new Regex(@"(?<=w:)\w+(?=\s)");
var rxValue = new Regex("(?<=w:val=\").+(?=\")");

var tests = new string[]
{
"w:name w:val=\"CALC_OFFICEADDRFULL\"",
"w:enabled w:val=\"true\"",
"w:calcOnExit w:val=\"false\"",
"w:type w:val=\"regular\""
};

foreach (var test in tests)
{
    Console.WriteLine("{0},{1}", rxKey.Match(test).Value, rxValue.Match(test).Value);
}

Option 2: (Substring)
var tests = new string[]
{
"w:name w:val=\"CALC_OFFICEADDRFULL\"",
"w:enabled w:val=\"true\"",
"w:calcOnExit w:val=\"false\"",
"w:type w:val=\"regular\""
};

foreach (var test in tests)
{
	var key = test.Substring(2, test.IndexOf(" ") - 2);

	int i = test.IndexOf("\"") + 1;
	var value = test.Substring(i, test.Length - i - 1);
	
	Console.WriteLine("{0},{1}", key, value);
}
