    Validate string in regular expression

    807605
      Hi

      I wanted to validate a name input in my project to check if it contains only characters or number and special characters like .(dot), -(hyphen) or _(underscore)

      I have formed this regular expression to check that:

      if(l_name.matches("[A-Za-z0-9._-]" ) )

      I am not sure whether it is right..anyway it does not work.

      Can somebody please correct me what is going wrong and suggest me how to make it work for my validation?

      Thanks,
