I have string data below:
var data = "somestring[a=0]what[b-c=twelve]----[def=one-2]test"
I need to get all strings that contain square brackets
. This is the result that I want.
["[a=0]", "[b-c=twelve]", "[def=one-2]"]
I’ve tried using regex
/[(.*?)]/, but what I’ve got is an only the first array element is correct, the next elements are basically the same value but without the square brackets.
data.match(/[(.*?)]/); // result => ["[a=0]", "a=0"]
What regexp should I use to achieve the result that I want? Thank you in advance.
You want to use the
g (global) modifier to find all matches. Since the brackets are included in the match result you don’t need to use a capturing group and I used negation instead to eliminate the amount of backtracking.
