Using regexpi in selenium.isTextPresent() 

Here is an example where you can use regexpi in selenium.isTextPresent(). You can use regexpi when you are checking for the text but are not worried about the case-sensitivity if the text.

Say I am looking for the text “This is” and the text on the webpage is “This is”; if you use selenium.isTextPresent(“This is”) your script will fail. To verify this you can use selenium.IsTextPresent(“regexpi:This is”)

Assert.IsTrue(selenium.IsTextPresent("regexpi:This is"));
catch (AssertionException e)

The regexp function is case sensitive in matching regular expressions to a string, and regexpi is case insensitive.
