hi all,

can somebody help me extract the text between two html tags in c#?

string inboxSubjectStartTag = "<span style=\"white-space: pre;\">";
string inboxinboxSubjectEndTag = "</span>";

Open in new window


The full html is

<span style="white-space: pre;">Re:hey</span>

Open in new window


I just want "Re:hey" extracted.

Thank you

if you have the html as text then u can do:
 string anchor = "<span style=\"white-space: pre;\">";
            int startIndex = html.IndexOf(anchor) + anchor.Length;
            int endIndex = html.IndexOf('<', startIndex);
            string txt = html.Substring(startIndex, endIndex - startIndex );
