What's the best Regex for .NET for the following number:

1. Show $ currency symbol
2. Mminimum number of 2000
3. Maximum number is 1000000
4. No decimal places
5. Comma is not needed


What I have tried:

To be honest, I wouldn't use a Regex - I'd use TryParse:
NumberStyles styles = NumberStyles.Integer | NmberStyles.AllowCurrencySymbol;
CultureInfo provider = new CultureInfo("en-US");
if (int.TryParse(stringToConvert, styles, provider, out number))
    if (number >= 2000 && number <= 1000000)
While it's theoretically possible to match min and max values with regex, you'd have to do
all the way through your range (there are some shorter ways but it's hard for humans to compute them)

I agree with OriginalGriff

This is easier with TryParse/Parse
What's the best Regex for .NET for the following number

I would use Regex to match the pattern, then check the value in code.

Just a few interesting links to help building and debugging RegEx.
Here is a link to RegEx documentation:
perlre -[^]
Here is links to tools to help build RegEx and debug them:
.NET Regex Tester - Regex Storm[^]
Expresso Regular Expression Tool[^]
RegExr: Learn, Build, & Test RegEx[^]
Online regex tester and debugger: PHP, PCRE, Python, Golang and JavaScript[^]
This one show you the RegEx as a nice graph which is really helpful to understand what is doing a RegEx: Debuggex: Online visual regex tester. JavaScript, Python, and PCRE.[^]
This site also show the Regex in a nice graph but can't test what match the RegEx: Regexper[^]
