Is there a built-in mechanism in .NET to match patterns other than Regular Expressions? I'd like to match using UNIX style (glob) wildcards (* = any number of any character).
I'd like to use this for a end-user facing control. I fear that permitting all RegEx capabilities will be very confusing.
I found the actual code for you:
Regex.Escape( wildcardExpression ).Replace( @"\*", ".*" ).Replace( @"\?", "." );
