MatchCF 1.0, serializable

System.Text.RegularExpressions (system.dll)class

This class is a single match result of a regular expression. As with Capture and Group, Match has no public constructor. It is returned by Regex.Match( ) or as a member of a MatchCollection returned by Regex.Matches( ). A Match instance contains the groups that have been captured in a GroupCollection returned by Groups. A Match inherits from Group and is equivalent to the zero-indexed group in its GroupCollection (the same as Groups[0]).

The NextMatch( ) method finds the next match result in the search string, starting at the end of the previous match. This method disregards any zero-width assertions on the tail of an expression and begins explicitly after the position of the last character of the previous result (even an empty result).

The Result( ) method takes a replacement pattern and returns the resulting string based on the current match. A replacement pattern is an expression that uses the group replacement syntax, such as $1 or ${name}. Result( ) expands the replacement variables corresponding to the captured groups, within its current result, and returns the string.
