if (Regex.IsMatch(text, @"^[a-zA-Z0-9_]+$"))
Master.ShowMessage("Enter number correctly", MessageHelper.MessageType.Information);

Depends on your existing Regex.
For example:
Would allow only numbers.
Would allow numbers with a decimal point, and an optional leading plus or minus.
To allow or disallow specific characters, we'd need to know what you want to permit - but get a copy of Expresso[^] - it's free, and it examines and generates Regular expressions.
It'll help you design your own to fit your specific needs.

Thanks for Expresso link - I'll be looking into that.

It's a good 'un - I've been using it for a couple of years, and it makes life a whole load easier. It even generates C# / VB code you can copy'n'paste right into your app.

I wish I'd written it! :laugh:
Something that will help you in general is to learn more about how to use RegEx. A very helpful site is regexlib[^] they have a large library of Regular Expressions. They also have a RegEx tester[^] which is very helpful in testing your RegEx code. Also, as Griff said, Ultrapico's Expresso[^] is a very useful tool for creating regular expressions.
