Getting substring from the given string

I have a string variable with this value = <!--#include file="../search/SearchInfo.aspx" -->
Dim sName As String = "<!--#include file="../search/SearchInfo.aspx""
I am looping through the array,the page name keeps on changing.


I want this part "../search/SearchInfo.aspx" or  just page name is also fine SearchInfo.aspx

How to get it.

Thanks

Dim sa() As String = sName.Text.Split(""""c)
Dim sb As String = ""

If sa.Length = 3 Then
    sb = sa(1)
Else
    ' Error
End If

do something similar to this :
int startIndex = sName.IndexOf("\"");
string value = sName.SubString(startIndex);

this code is in C# but I am sure you know how to translate this to VB.NET

One more way id you need just file name:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        Dim sName As String = "<!--#include file=""../search/SearchInfo.aspx"""

        ' get substring and remove trailin quotes
        Dim fileName As String = sName.Substring(sName.LastIndexOf("/"c) + 1).Trim(New Char() {""""c})

        MessageBox.Show(fileName)
    End Sub

Try something like that:

    Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click

        Dim sName As String = "<!--#include file=""../search/SearchInfo.aspx""-->"""

        ' get substring and remove trailin quotes
        Dim rawName As String = sName.Substring(sName.LastIndexOf("/"c) + 1)
        Dim fileName As String = rawName.Substring(0, rawName.IndexOf(""""c))

        MessageBox.Show(fileName)
    End Sub

"How to get the part of the array between specific indexes(Ex:index 10 and 100)"

I'm not quite sure I understand the question. However, if you have and array of strings and want to get a sub-array from existing array (i.e,, only part of an original array) you may use ther following method (see MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/z50k9bft(v=vs.110).aspx)

public T[] GetSubArray<T>(this T[] originalData, int startIndex, int length)
{
    T[] resultingArray = new T[length]; //create new array to copy results to
    Array.Copy(originalData, startIndex, resultingArray , 0, length); //use Array method to copy
    return resultingArray ; // return result
}

I will explain the requirement.
I read the .aspx file line by line in string array .It has include files in the body content. I replaced include files line with its content in string array. Now I want to get the content between body tags.

Do you have any other ideas? file content in the string array. Need to get the content inside the body tags to save it in database.

Thanks

Honestly, I'm pretty confused. The initial task was to get a file name from a path string.
And I believe that the answer was given.

Now you are asking about the content. Can you explain with examples?
