How can I get everything after the last comma in a string?

This does NOT work:
dim Address as String = "Madison, WI"
dim State = Address.EverythingAfterLastComma.Trim
Response.Write(State)

Try:

Dim result As String = Regex.Match(original, "[^,]+$").Groups(0)

Dim original As String = "City, XZ"
Dim result As String = Regex.Match(original, "[^,]+$").Groups(0)

Open in new window

I get this error:
Compiler Error Message: BC30311: Value of type 'System.Text.RegularExpressions.Group' cannot be converted to 'String'.

Sorry, add ".Value" to the end of that.
