Why don't you use AJAX Tool Kit's Password Strength[^]?

Regular Expressions are not the best solution to enforce some password constraints.
But, if you want to persist this way, I recommend you to use Expresso to build your regular expressions.

Take a look on this discussion http://forums.asp.net/t/918584.aspx/1

Based on it you can build your regex. Something like this:
^(?=[^&]*\d)(?=[^&]*[a-zA-Z])(?=[^&]*[%$#^*@\-:]).{8,}$

[%$#^*@\-:] in this square brackets allowed special characters are defined.

If you want to learn more about regex I advice to look here The 30 Minute Regex Tutorial[^]
   
Hi,

This regular expression works fine for me:
((?=.*[a-zA-Z]+)(?=.*[0-9]+)(?=.*[^a-zA-Z0-9&]+))(?:.{8,})

Hope this helps.
