Description
*CORRECTED: Again thanks for all the comments below. If you want to include internal domain as well change the partial code (\.[\w-_]+)+ to (\.[\w-_]+)? See the comments below* This is the regular expression I use to add links in my email program. It also ignores those suppose-to-be commas/periods/colons at the end of the URL, like this sentence "check out http://www.yahoo.com/." (the period will be ignored) Note that it requires some modification to match ones that dont start with http.

^(?=[^&])(?:(?<scheme>[^:/?#]+):)?(?://(?<authority>[^/?#]*))?(?<path>[^?#]*)(?:\?(?<query>[^#]*))?(?:#(?<fragment>.*))?
Description
Use it for breaking-down a URI (URL, URN) reference into its main components: Scheme, Authority, Path, Query and Fragment. This is not a simple match regular expression. so it not works to verify a URI. It returns 1 matching group for each URI component. For example, for the following URI: http://regexlib.com/REDetails.aspx?regexp_id=x#Details returns: scheme=&quot;http&quot;, authority=&quot;regexlib.com&quot;, path=&quot;/REDetails.aspx&quot;, query=&quot;regexp_id=x&quot; and fragment=&quot;Details&quot;. This is a W3C raccomandation (RFC 2396).

Description
This regular expression pattern can be used to check the validity of paths for file upload controls. The uploaded file can be either stored locally or accessible through UNC. It cannot contain illegal characters for the windows OS - that may be supported e.g. on Mac OS – and cannot be a URL (Yes, as weird as it may seem, some users enter URLs in the file upload box, even though there is a browse button...)

Description
will match free floating valid protocol + urls in text ... will not touch the ones wrapped in a tag, so that you can auto-link the ones that aren't :) couple of things to know : 1. if the url is next to a tag this won't work (eg : &lt;br&gt;http://www.acme.com), the url must either start with a \s, \n or any character other than &gt;. 2. the pattern will match the preceding \s and \n too, so when you replace put them back in place $1 will either be \s or \n, $2 will be the exact match vb usage : set re = New RegExp re.Pattern =&quot;(\s|\n|^)(\w+://[^\s\n]+)&quot; strResult = re.Replace(strText, &quot;$1&lt;a href='$2' target='_new'&gt;$2&lt;/a&gt;&quot;)

This regular expression will find the highest level groups within recursive tokens. For instance, if I have &quot;This is [just [an] example] of the [expression]&quot;, it'll find [just [an] example] and [expression], and nothing else. It will also not find an escaped bracket expression. If you want to replace the bracket with curly braces or parenthesis, be careful.

this Expression use conditional expression to eveluate parameter after &quot;HREF&quot; and executes the yes/no part of the expression. this expression finds &lt;A&gt; TAG and returns value of &quot;HREF&quot; and the value hold in between &lt;a&gt;&lt;/a&gt; tags. the expression returns maximum 3 sub matches. the first match returns the &quot;HREF&quot; tag value and rest of two holds the value of the tag alternativly. so after executing the expression you need to itarate through all the submatches and need to find out non NULL tags to get value. the output of the above matching expamples would be like this : 1: &quot;/url?sa=p&amp;pref=ig&amp;pval=2&amp;q=http://www.google.co.in/ig%3Fhl%3Den&quot; 2:[Personalized Home] 3:[] or NULL the output of the second matching example would be like this. 1:/advanced_search?hl=en 2:[] or NULL 3:[Advanced Search]

Title Test Details Smarter URL extractor from plain text
Expression
(http(s?)://|[a-zA-Z0-9\-]+\.)[a-zA-Z0-9/~\-]+\.[a-zA-Z0-9/~\-_,&\?\.;]+[^\.,\s<]
Description
This regex avoids matching typical mistakes where a sentence ends but there is no space after the full stop (period). Other regexes will think any two words with a dot in between is a URL! My regex does not require http:// and if there isn't http:// it will need to find AT LEAST two dots to guarantee its likely to be a URL and not a sentence that's missing a space like this.It will match www.test.com, http://test.com, test.com/index.htm but it will NOT match test.com. It will not match a dot or a comma at the very end which some people may type when including a URL in a sentence like this www.test.com, or this www.test.com.

Title Test Details Number limiting x digits before decimal, and y digits after decimal point.
Expression
^([0-9]{0,5}|[0-9]{0,5}\.[0-9]{0,3})$
Description
This regular expression is intended to limit numeric entries by allowed places before and after the decimal point. It also recognizes whole numbers. In this example the value cannot exceed 99999.999. To change the range, simply edit the numbers in curly braces. For example, to allow 7 digits (millions) before the decimal point, change both instances of {0,5} to {0,7}. Likewise, to change the decimals from allowing thousandths (3 digits) to just hundreths, change the {0,3} to {0,2}. This can be useful for numeric fields in SQL. This example was made to accommodate a numeric(8,3) field definition.

Title Test Details Specific Top-Level Domain (TLD)
Expression
^.*(yourdomain.com).*$
Description
Matches the TLD of a given domain (replace yourdomain.com with whatever domain you're trying to enforce). I was writing an web application in which I wanted to to display a special message to visitors if and only if they were referred to my site by one specific site. However, because the specific site in question was highly dynamic, referring URLs were all over the place in terms of consistency and the only thing I knew I could count on 100% was the TLD (subdomains and file paths acceptable, so long as the TLD matches exactly).
Matches
yourdomain.com | http://www.yourdomain.com | http://subdomain.yourdomain.com/pages/manage/?act=4015876&ag=709254588456a
Non-Matches
