How do I count the number of occurences of a string in Edit Control?


The number of occurences of a string in Edit Control can be found using the Matches method of the Regex class.


Regex r = new Regex(searchText, RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);

MatchCollection ma = r.Matches(this.editControl1.Text);

return ma.Count;


Dim r As Regex = New Regex(pattern, RegexOptions.IgnoreCase)

Dim ma As MatchCollection = r.Matches(Me.editControl1.Text)

return ma.Count
