So I assume you want to get something like this as an output:

Code: Select all

1.	[0-5]	`Title`
2.	[7-24]	`This is the title`
1.	[25-29]	`main`
2.	[31-36]	`main1`
1.	[37-41]	`tags`
2.	[43-46]	`222`
1.	[47-51]	`tags`
2.	[53-56]	`285`
If that's the case you should use:

Code: Select all

/(.*): (.*)/g
Please note, I quit VB years ago and this is PHP based regex. I don't recall how regex works in VB.net, but you get the context.

So if I understand what you're looking for you want to get 'title' and put it in a variable named 'title' and put 'tags' under a variable named 'tags'.

Code: Select all

Dim Title = Regex.Match(text, "Title:\s*(.*)").Groups(1).Value
Dim Tags = Regex.Matches(text, "tags:\s*(.+)").Cast(Of Match)().Select(Function(x) x.Groups(1).Value) 'Where text would be whatever string you are getting
