Regex C# Using it to make string "Material_Load_Table" to "Material Load Table"

Hello!

I've ran into a problem today with regex.

I would like to use a regex expression to turn "Material_Load_Table" and other similair looking sentences into "Material Load Table"

So that would be, replacing the underlines with space and turn the first letter in every word into uppercase.

(I want to solve this in one expression and I dont really want to use loops or anything else)

I've managed somehow to do something similair http://jsfiddle.net/bLm44/2/ but I am not happy with the way the code looks and it is buggy.


Any idea what I can do? Appreciate a quick answer! Ask me if there is anything unclear :)

Hi,

//Remove all the underscores
   string inputString = "Material_load_Table";
        Regex re = new Regex("_");
        string outputString = re.Replace(inputString, " ");
        string YourRequiredString = UppercaseWords(outputString);

//For converting starting word to capital
public static string UppercaseWords(string value)
    {
        char[] array = value.ToCharArray();
        // Handle the first letter in the string.
        if (array.Length >= 1)
        {
            if (char.IsLower(array[0]))
            {
                array[0] = char.ToUpper(array[0]);
            }
        }
        // Scan through the letters, checking for spaces.
        // ... Uppercase the lowercase letters following spaces.
        for (int i = 1; i < array.Length; i++)
        {
            if (array[i - 1] == ' ')
            {
                if (char.IsLower(array[i]))
                {
                    array[i] = char.ToUpper(array[i]);
                }
            }
        }
        return new string(array);
    }

For anyone in the future, heres what my function finally looked like, you need to add "using System.Globalization" in the top.


 public string ToTitleCase(string inputString)
        {
            return (CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.TextInfo.ToTitleCase(inputString.ToLower().Replace("_", " ")));
        }
