The CapitalizeString method uses regular expressions to capitalize every word in a string.

How if I want to do the job capitalize above using Visual C++ 2005?

I\'ve tried your code but there is no RegEx and Match class in Visual C++.
Maybe you know what class similar to RegEx and Match in Visual C++.

Thank you very much.

Nice effort, but clumsy and very wordy implementation. Here\'s some one liners I use to do this kind of stuff:

public static string TitleCase(string Name) { return Regex.Replace(Name.ToLower(), @\"(^|\\W).\", delegate(Match m) { return m.Value.ToUpper(); }); }
public static string CapFirstAll(string Name) { return Regex.Replace(Name, @\"(^|\\W).\", delegate(Match m) { return m.Value.ToUpper(); }); }
public static string CapFirst(string Name) { return Regex.Replace(Name, @\"^.\", delegate(Match m) { return m.Value.ToUpper(); }); }

Nice oneliners, but those patterns do not always work

by Farid on Thursday, April 17th 2008 at 05:05 AM

With this pattern, it works better :
