Hi there

Hope you can help me out

In the web.config I have to add a Property called

PasswordStrengthRegularExpression

the RegExp must be

English uppercase characters (A - Z)
English lowercase characters (a - z)
Base 10 digits (0 - 9)

... and you MUST have 1 of each item i.e.

1 UpperCase char
1 LowerCare char
1 number between 0 - 9

Can someone please help me with the regexp

thanks

This should do it:

^(?=[^A-Z]+[A-Z])(?=[^a-z]+[a-z])(?=[^0-9]+[0-9])[A-Za-z0-9]+$

What a difference a single character can make!!  I used the wrong quantifier:

^(?=[^A-Z]*[A-Z])(?=[^a-z]*[a-z])(?=[^0-9]*[0-9])[A-Za-z0-9]+$
