Hi,

I am trying to find whether there is any way to find that my string is a substring of regex.

here is my requirement I have a regex [A-G]{7} strings ABCDEFG,DEFGDEF.... all matches my regex. I have another string ABC I need to find whether ABC is substring of string which matches my regex. I didn't find any method to attain this. Is there any way to get this?

Thanks,
Deepak.

Thanks for Replying Rob, String.contains used between String and CharSequences but I want to match a String and Regex.

What is wrong with the obvious? "while" loop, regex find, and string contains?


Unless, you want the regex to be used to generate all the possible strings so that you can check for substring.... Then no, I don't believe that there is such a thing.
