i am working on a web application where using ASP:treeview control to display files link so that user can click and get the values into respective textboxes. my link file name format is "001193 - La Cabana - Ins Boiler and Machinery - 03-29-2023.pdf". so i have four text boxes to contain values from the link as soon as user click the link. so far i was able to manage populate three values into text boxes except Date value. For me only first two digit(03) getting not whole date. what i need to tweak to get the whole date into text box? Below is the code.


<asp:TreeView ID="TreeView1" runat="server" _ImageSet="XPFileExplorer" NodeIndent="15" OnSelectedNodeChanged="TreeView1_SelectedNodeChanged">
                            <HoverNodeStyle Font-Underline="True" ForeColor="#6666AA" />
                            <NodeStyle Font-Names="Tahoma" Font-Size="10pt" ForeColor="Black" HorizontalPadding="2px"
                                NodeSpacing="0px" VerticalPadding="2px"></NodeStyle>
                            <ParentNodeStyle Font-Bold="true" />
                            <SelectedNodeStyle BackColor="#B5B5B5" Font-Underline="False" HorizontalPadding="0px"
                                VerticalPadding="0px" />

 protected void TreeView1_SelectedNodeChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
                String filename = ((System.Web.UI.WebControls.TreeView)sender).SelectedValue;

                TreeNode selectedNode = TreeView1.SelectedNode;
                string[] fileNameParts = selectedNode.Text.Split('-');

                string projectNumber = fileNameParts[0].Trim();
                string projectName = fileNameParts[1].Trim();
                string insuranceType = fileNameParts[2].Trim();
                string fileDate = fileNameParts[3].Trim().Replace(".pdf", "");

                //string projectNumber = selectedNode.Text.Split('-')[0].Trim();
                //string projectName = selectedNode.Text.Split('-')[1].Trim();
                //string insuranceType = selectedNode.Text.Split('-')[2].Trim();
                //string[] nodeTextparts2 = nodeTextParts[3].Split('.');
                //string datePattern = @"\d{2}/\d{2}/\d{4}";
                //string date = "";
                //foreach (string part in nodeTextparts)
                //    Match match = Regex.Match(part.Trim(), datePattern);
                //    if (match.Success)
                //    {
                //        date = match.Value;
                //        break;
                //    }
                //string effectiveDate = filename[3].ToString();
                //string FinaleffectiveDate = nodeTextparts2[0].ToString();
                String rootDirectory = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory;

                String relativePath = filename.Replace(rootDirectory, "");

                RadPdfViewer1.PdfjsProcessingSettings.File = relativePath;
                RadPdfViewer1.Visible = true;

                // Fill up text boxes values from the link 
                rad_txtProjectNumber.Text = projectNumber;
                rad_txtprojectName.Text = projectName;
                rad_txtInsuranceType.Text = insuranceType;
                rad_txtEffectivedate.Text = fileDate;
            catch (Exception ex)
                //lblerror.Text = ex.Message;
                //lblerror.Visible = true;

    Hi @Raki,

    If you just want to get whole date string from SelectNode Text. You can try these code below:

    string NodeText = selectedNode.Text;
    string pattern = @"\b\d{2}-\d{2}-\d{4}\b";
    Match match = Regex.Match(NodeText, pattern);
    if (match.Success) { 
         string fileDate = match.Value;
