Hi

I have the following in a text file:

"username":"blah"

How could I use a regular expression to extract just "blah" using c#?

Thanks

public static string extractTo(string html)
        {
            string anchor = "\"username\":\"";
            int startIndex = html.IndexOf(anchor) + anchor.Length;
            int endIndex = html.IndexOf('"', startIndex);
            string txt = html.Substring(startIndex, endIndex - startIndex);
            return txt;
        }
