This is a tool for testing regular expressions in Visual Studio 2019. The tool simple and easy to use, the processing occurs in a background thread.
You can use the Shift+Alt+R shortcut to show tool or open menu View -> Other Windows -> Regex Tester.
This is open source project and source codes are available on GitHub.
NOTE: Previous versions with support VS 2015-2017 are available on GitHub.
Three main modes: Match, Replace, Split.
Autorun feature, there's no necessity always clicks on "Run" button.
Optimize feature, auto use at test large data, shows only first 1000 chars and add warning in the end of output data.
Multi Tabs, you can test other data in new tab.
Output feaure, you can generate C# samples for yours regex.
Output format, you can use '\t' for tab, and '\n' for new line and other chars (see tooltip for field).
The major part of processing occurs in async mode. If process is very busy, 'autorun' will turn off (for better perfomance).
Additional info in controls of input/output text (updated after each run processing).
Change font size for all controls.
