i want to come up with regular expression that excludes these characters:

`~!@#$%^&*()_+-=\][|}{‘;”:/.,?><

but whatever i come up with also excludes foreign language characters such as chinese or russian:

¿¿¿¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

can someone tell me if regular expression is the best way to handle this type of situations?  thanks.

Chinese characters not a problem - see example below

Russian won't be a problem either

Can you do an example using reg ex?  Not sure if string replacement is the same as regular expression.

Yes, it is the same essentially. Is what you're after to test if the string includes any characters that should be excluded and to declare it invalid otherwise?

boolean valid = s.matches(.*"[~!@#$%^&*()_+-=\\]\\[|}{‘;”:/.,?><].*)";

Open in new window
