GeneralRe: how to make username regex for windows forms Pin

Above you said: "I mean allowing only one dot dash or underscore in a row?".
The meaning of "in a row" is that the characters consecutively follow one another with out other characters in between.
If you meant that there should be at most one "-" and at most one "." and at most one "_", you should have said so. Smile | :)

I don't think this is possible to achieve using regular expressions. You'd have to iterate over the characters and increment a counter for each of the three characters "-", "." and "_". As soon a one of the counters is greater than one the check already failed and you don't need to use the regulare expression.

Regards,

Manfred
