Title Test Details Pattern Title
Expression
^([\s\S]){1,20}([\s\.])
Description
This pattern returns as much of the first x characters of a string as full words or sentences as a match, where x is currently 20. Change x to adjust the length supported in your database field. I'm currently using this within a string shortening utility to shrink large text regions to word/sentance-boundary elements and appending an ellipsis as a text continuator.
Matches
Any text of any length | ...but will only 'match' the first 20 characters at a period or space.
Non-Matches
N/A
