What is the ValidationExpression to be used for a ASP.net text box  control to ensure only whole numbers are accepted (0 to 9) without any decimals?

I am using the following ValidationExpression

Hi,

I think it's fine, do you want thousand separators
Shorter
"^\d+$"

You need below if (  Regex.IsMatch("12345", @"^[0-9]*$" ))

 if (  Regex.IsMatch("12345", @"^[0-9]*$" ))
                
                 Console.WriteLine("match - [0-9]");
            
 else            
                
                Console.WriteLine("Other");

Open in new window


Hope it helps!!

I wouldn' t use
@"^[0-9]*$"

since it matches empty strings

Thank you Rgonzo1971. I think user will not be allowed to click on the submit button in that case. We can also use below if thats the issue.

            string str = "";
            if ( str.Length > 0 && Regex.IsMatch(str, @"^[0-9]*$" ))
                
                 Console.WriteLine("match - [0-9]");
            
            else            
                
                Console.WriteLine("Other");

^\d+$ fails since it allows empty space. I want only whole numbers without decimals to go through. Thanks.

Cannot replicate your error
        string str = "";
        if ( Regex.IsMatch(str, @"^\d+$"))

            Console.WriteLine("match - [0-9]");

        else

            Console.WriteLine("Other");
