    Reg Exp always returning false value

    Ahmed Imran A K



      Below is my code. I want to restrict the values to only alphabets and numbers and not special char.


      But the below condition fails on a positive value also. Ex: ABCD, abcd, 1234. These should be acceptable.


      Is the reg exp wrong?


      private var special_char:RegExp = /^[A-Za-z0-9]*$/;


                                    private function validateSpecialChar(inputValue:String):Boolean {

                                              if (special_char.test(inputValue))


                                                        valid = true;




                                                        valid = false;


                                              return valid;
