IgnoreCase Property

Sets or returns a Boolean value that indicates if a pattern search is case-sensitive or not.

object.IgnoreCase [= True | False ]

The object argument is always a RegExp object. The value of the IgnoreCase property is False if the search is case-sensitive, True if it is not. Default is False.


The following code illustrates the use of the IgnoreCase property (change the value assigned to IgnoreCase property to see its effect):

Function RegExpTest(patrn, strng)
   Dim regEx, Match, Matches   ' Create variable.
   Set regEx = New RegExp   ' Create a regular expression.
   regEx.Pattern = patrn   ' Set pattern.
   regEx.IgnoreCase = True   ' Set case insensitivity.
   regEx.Global = True   ' Set global applicability.
   Set Matches = regEx.Execute(strng)   ' Execute search.
   For Each Match in Matches   ' Iterate Matches collection.
      RetStr = RetStr & "Match found at position "
      RetStr = RetStr & Match.FirstIndex & ". Match Value is '"
      RetStr = RetStr & Match.Value & "'." & vbCRLF
   RegExpTest = RetStr
End Function
MsgBox(RegExpTest("is.", "IS1 is2 IS3 is4"))
