You've tagged this question as both "C#" and "Java". Those are two completely separate languages. Which one are you using?

Try this:

for the first one.
You should be able to figure out the other one.

You have to parse the inputs from left to right for all possible numbers of digits.

For 0 to 12 this would be 0 to 9 and 10 to 12. So a possible regex might be

For 30 to 300 with 30 to 99, 100 to 299, and 300:

However, when using this in a validation function it would be much easier and faster to use if conditions after getting and optionally trimming the input (which has to be done for the regex too) and converting to integer.

I have omitted the begin and end markers. I just provided the plain matching parts because I have no information which regex engine and method is used. That depends also on the used programming language which might provide functions that already check the whole string.

Try this:

The first problem here is that {1,12} in your RegEx means nothing, it is not legal in this context.
Second problem, your RegExs is missing ^ at beginning, which mean that any thing that ends with what you want will match.
ex: Anything10 will match.

Just a few interesting links to help building and debugging RegEx.
Here is a link to RegEx documentation:
perlre -[^]
Here is links to tools to help build RegEx and debug them:
.NET Regex Tester - Regex Storm[^]
Expresso Regular Expression Tool[^]
RegExr: Learn, Build, & Test RegEx[^]
Online regex tester and debugger: PHP, PCRE, Python, Golang and JavaScript[^]
This one show you the RegEx as a nice graph which is really helpful to understand what is doing a RegEx:
Debuggex: Online visual regex tester. JavaScript, Python, and PCRE.[^]
This site also show the Regex in a nice graph but can't test what match the RegEx:
Rather than use a regular expression, have you considered calling setFilters() on the EditText object? Something like:
EditText et = (EditText) findViewById(;
et.setFilters(new InputFilter[]{ new InputFilterRange("0", "12")});
et.setFilters(new InputFilter[]{ new InputFilterRange("30", "300")});
Of course, you'll need to create a InputFilterRange class by extending InputFilter.
