Hi,

I'm using a this pattern "\\\\[.*\\\\]" to detect a line in a file which is enclosed by sqaure brackets, for example [Group_1] when I have a match I want to stop reading the file so I use

while (!System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.IsMatch(line, pattern, System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions.IgnoreCase))
                        {
                                                //Do Stuff
                        }

Unfortunatley is doesn't work
