Hi All,

Working to build a library extension and I’m getting an error on this line when I go to test it in LCB:

put "^[A-Z0-9._%+-]{1,64}@(?:[A-Z0-9-]{1,63}\.){1,125}[A-Z]{2,63}$" into tRegex

The error is:

illegal escape in string '^[A-Z0-9._%+-]{1,64}@(?:[A-Z0-9-]{1,63}\.){1,125}[A-Z]{2,63}$’

Any ideas?
