[ACCEPTED]-Reg. Expression checks first letter of a string-regex
Your expression does not need .* nor should 3 it have the $
In fact, if you don't need 2 to know what this letter is, you could go 1 even simpler:
'/^[a-zA-Z]/' // These expressions are true /^[a-zA-Z]/.test("Sample text") var re = new RegExp('^[a-zA-Z]'); re.test('Sample text');
Try the following:
which checks if the first 2 letter is in the alphabet and allows any 1 character after that.
I was able to single out the first letter 3 with this
/^[a-zA-Z].*$/ from one of the above answers, but 2 I didn't need the
.\*$ so I had
/^[A-J]/g (working on 1 my own assignment hence a-j).
