Replace Special character from string using Regular expression in C#

By Francis   Posted at   6:04 PM   CodeSnippets No comments
In one of the forum post, the poster asked to
  1. Remove all the special character
  2. Then Remove the space and replace with _ (underscore) character
Say for example, if he gave, the input string as “Levi Jeans (Blue) & yellow 101 – 150Ah” and the output he wants as “Levi_Jeans_Blue_yellow_101_150ah”.

            string yourInput = "Levi Jeans (Blue) & yellow 101 - 150Ah"; 
            Regex rgx = new Regex(@"[^a-zA-Z\d\s]"); 
            // Replace Special Charater and space with emptystring 
            string finalOutput = rgx.Replace(yourInput,""); 
            Regex rgx1 = new Regex("\\s+"); 
            // Replace space with underscore 
            finalOutput = rgx1.Replace(finalOutput, "_");

Open Live Writer–An alternative for Windows Live writer

                          Open Live Writer

                     For the last couple of year, i have used a windows essential tool called “Windows Live Writer” for blogging. Yes! It’s made my job easier. It reduces huge amount of work regarding formatting, insert images etc., in my blog post. Literally, I’m a big fan of it.
                        But most recently, Google changed it’s authentication mode and adopt a new authentication technique. So whenever you tried to post/publish a draft you will get the below error:
                         As a remedy, I Googled and Binged a lot and find an another alternative called “Open Live Writer”. You can download it from here. It’s a opensource editor, developed by a group of people inside and outside (.NetFoundation) Microsoft. If you want to participate you can get the source from: If you want to know about more Scott Hanselman’s post is very much helpful, which discusses removed features and features on the way in OLW etc.,

                          One of the main draw back that I found in OLW(Open Live Editor) is, it missed out the “Automatic spell check”, which I thought all bloggers love that. Another good news is you can run OLW and Windows Live Editor side by side.As a tweak for the “Spell Check Issue”, I’m still uses Windows Live Editor to draft my blog and publish it by OLW. Hope this tweak is still worth mentioning! wlEmoticon-smile[2]

Hope this post will help for someone! Smile
