· Performance Zone

Discover 50 of the latest mobile performance statistics with the Ultimate Guide to Digital Experience Monitoring, brought to you in partnership with Catchpoint.

If you want the regular expression to run faster , you can set the RegexOptions.Compiled value to the regex constructor. This will compile the regex in to their own assembly which will run a little faster.

Below is a sample code snippet demonstrating the usage of RegexOptions.Compiled.

//  Validating a Zip codes in C# using Regular Expression
2
string GKZipCode = @"^\d{5}(-?\d{4})?$";
3
Regex regex = new Regex(GKZipCode, RegexOptions.Compiled);
4
bool Matching = regex.IsMatch("15689");
5
Console.WriteLine(Matching);
6
Console.ReadLine();
