Compare a value returned dynamically using regEx

Hi 

I want to compare a text returned by an object using regEx as the number in actual text changes dynamically.

 

Here is what I am using

     var actualName = "Test_QA (Abcdef XY8)";
     var regExPattern  = "Test_QA \(Abcdef XY\d{1,2}\)";
     aqObject.CompareProperty(actualName, cmpMatches, regExPattern);

 

Output: The property value "Test_QA (Abcdef XY8)" does not match the pattern "Test_QA (Abcdef XYd{1,2})". 20:02:51 Normal 0.00

 

Can you please help with the right syntax?

    function Test4()
    {
        var str = "Test_QA Abcdef XY1";
        var pattern1 = /Test_QA Abcdef XY\d{1,3}/gm // native regular expression will match 0 - 999
        var pattern2 = new RegExp("Test_QA Abcdef XY\\d{1,3}"); Note \\ is used
    
        Log.Message(pattern1.test(str));
        Log.Message(pattern2.test(str));
        
        aqObject.CompareProperty(str, cmpMatches, "^Test_QA Abcdef XY\\z$", false, lmError); // TC regular expression
    }
