I have some strings that contain multiple words (separated by spaces, but can also contain ANY characters). Some of them end with grid coordinates surrounded by square brackets, e.g., [x,y], where x,y are any integer less then 13 (although the test for < 13 isn't absolutely necessary).
I want to be able to identify the strings that end with a grid coordinate, and then remove that part of the string and trim the remaining of whitespace from the right hand side.
I think the use of a regex should do this, but I am unfamiliar with the syntax... although trying to learn it.
An example string is:
Hex Beam [0,0]
(note that there is nothing stopping the use square brackets in the section before the grid coordinate - so the test has to be for how the string ends)
... and I need
Lastly, I am coding in C#.
As pointed out by u/Jefré N. in the comments, this should get the job done:
string NewTestString = "Hex [1,1] Beam [12,9]"; Regex rx = new Regex(@"\[[0-9]*[,][0-9]*\]$"); string OutPut = rx.Replace(NewTestString, "").TrimEnd();
