Default looping thru string

Hi I have a string like so:

firstname: jason | jeff^lastname: smith |^mname: robert | kevin

I am trying to split on the "^" and then split on the "|" and then check if there is a value in the second index of the "|" split.

this is what i have:

foreach (string s in Regex.Split(messageBody, "^", RegexOptions.IgnoreCase))
                for (int t = 0; t < s.Length; t++)
                    string[] temp = s .Split(new Char[] { '|' }, 2);
                    if (temp[1].ToString().Length > 0)
                        mBody += s + "\r\n";

the result should be:
firstname: jason | jeff
mname: robert | kevin

and ignor the: lastname: smith | because ther is no value after the "|"

any suggestions? thanks

You say what you 'should' be getting but you don't way what you 'are' getting. I don't see the problem.

Also - temp[1] is a string - there is NO POINT in appending .ToString() to a string. If you are doing this to try to 'fix' some other problem then you are probably not understanding the other problem.
