RegEx Validation for Linkedin Profile

Posted by Kedarasp under ASP.NET on 3/6/2014 | Points: 10 | Views : 8214 | Status : [Member] | Replies : 4
I just want to make a textbox valid which should only accept Linkedin Profiles. I'm using the following RegularExpression, but this is not working.


<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator2" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtLinkedin" CssClass="required" Display="Dynamic" ErrorMessage="Invalid!" ValidationExpression="(http(s?)://|[a-zA-Z0-9\-]+\.|[linkedin])[linkedin/~\-]+\.[a-zA-Z0-9/~\-_,&=\?\.;]+[^\.,\s<]" ValidationGroup="form1"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>

The above expression is accepting URLs which doesn't have www like
http://in.linkedin.com/pub/kedar-nayak/19/54b/154

But not accepting the following URL which has www
http://www.linkedin.com/pub/kedar-nayak/19/54b/154
Please suggest me the right regularexpression which can accept LinkedIn Profiles only.

Thank you.

Please try once before answering this question. I've asked for Asp .Net , not for PHP.

Hello,

Try to tweet the code as per your requirement...
Last response in the posted link is regular expression

var linkedin=/(ftp|http|https):\/\/?((www|\w\w)\.)?linkedin.com(\w+:{0,1}\w*@)?(\S+)(:([0-9])+)?(\/|\/([\w#!:.?+=&%@!\-\/]))?/;


Sometimes we may not have sufficient time to tweet your exact requirement. So better to try once...

Note : I would thought of the above expression can help you
