    A question about regular expressions

    Hi,

    I have a variable string and I would like to check whether it contains the following or not:

    "digit"+"digit"+":"

    For example: "02:", "45:", "13:", "88:" etc.

    I tried the following but it didn't work:

    HTML Code:
    myString.indexOf(/[0-9]{2}$/+':')
    Thanks for any ideas.

    Hi,

    \d will match any digit and the colon is just a normal character, so you could write:

    Code JavaScript:
    var str="This is my string 99:99"; 
    if (str.match(/\d\d:/)){
      alert("Match found");
    }

    HTH
