I currently have this expression in a javascript method and need to port it over to vb.net

tmpMsg = rawNote.replaceAll("<!--(.|\s)*?-->","")

I guess this is essentially removing comment tags within a html string?

In any event, how do I do the same thing in vb.net?

That pattern will work fine in VB.NET.

e.g.

Dim tmpMsg As String = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(rawNote, "<!--(.|\s)*?-->","")

Open in new window
