I want to detect that:
This validation will be done in the code behind to check that the user is doing things correctly.

<script>alert('some text here');</script>
But what if the user uses a different approach. Like:
<script>var a='some text here';alert(a);</script>
Is regex still the technology to use in this case? I have to make sure that the variable declared is the same variable used inside the alert().

It's just a simple textbox for the pattern and another textbox for the string. A label shows "Matching" or "Not Matching" after button click.
Playing around in my little playground, I can't seem to find a solution for my new regex problem.
For example, I have this:
var a1='hi '; var b2='username';alert(a1 + b2);
Using backreferences, I can call variables a1 & b2 again in the alert.
But what do I do about the declaration of the second variable(b2 variable)? I need a variable that is composed of letters, numbers, or underscore that does not have special characters (following the rule of a variable). So I have...
At the same time, the second variable should not be equal to the first variable. This is where I'm stuck.
I need a logic AND. Some references say I can achieve this with (?=pattern)
I need to say that it should not be equal to the first variable.
[^\1] doesn't work. It seems that backreference doesn't work inside brackets.
Character class subtraction doesn't seem to help either.
Could someone guide me on how to achieve this?
