RegExSearch in ExpressionEditor (built in Functions)

By Harry de Boer on 20 Feb 2014

we do almost all of our validations with RegEx. We now have to add RegExSearch actions and then an IF to catch the outcome (Found true/false). It would be nice (and perhaps not to hard to implement?) that in the Expression Editor under BuiltInFunctions - Text, a RegExSearch function would be added (params: texttosearch and pattern).

You could easily create a function that calls RegExSearch, returning the Found parameter. The reason it's not currently a function is that it has more than one return value. Very often, you need the result, not just whether it's found.
