Remove special character/Nonnatural character from string/filename

it's useful to have filename without special characters...


Public Shared Function strip(ByVal str As String) As String
               Return Regex.Replace(str, "[\[\]\\\^\$\|\?\*\+\(\)\{\}%,;>
    End Function
' Put \ with your character. to include dot use \.


another old method



Public Shared Function strip(ByVal str As String) As String
         remove nonnatural characters
        Dim intCounter As Integer
        Dim arrSpecialChar() As String = {",", "<", ">", ":", "?", """", "/", "{", "[", "}", "]", "`", "~", "!", "@", "#", "$", "%", "^", "&", "*", "(", ")", "_", "-", "+", "=", "|", " ", "\"}


       intCounter = 0
        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 0 To arrSpecialChar.Length - 1


           Do Until intCounter = 28
               str = Replace(str, arrSpecialChar(i), "")
                intCounter = intCounter + 1


            Loop
           intCounter = 0
        Next
        Return str
