How to count the number of occurrences of a string in WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl)?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl


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
