QRegExp for everything inside [ ]

  • Well, i have some issues with QRegExp (They're not friendly with me!) I just want to know the QRegExp for everything inside [ ], like the one for Quotations (QRegExp("".*"")) but for [ ] instead.

  • You'll just have to escape <code>[</code> and <code>]</code> within your pattern, as they are used to group expressions.
    QRegExp pattern("[.*]"); // double slash, as you want to escape the
    // brackets within your pattern, not within
    // the string passed to the ctor
    Be aware that if there are nested brackets you'll receive a greedy match, as QRegExp::setMinimal() is false per default.
