Replace All in Javascript

04 May

Hi all, we very well know the string operation, replace in javascript, to replace a string pattern in a string with another pattern, ex:

madan.replace(“d”, “dh”); which returns madhan but the thing is it replaces only the first occurence of the patters, to say in details, it will not do replace all.. To achieve that simply include the g modifier like

dhanush.replace(/h/g, “hh”); This will replace all occurences of “h” with “hh”.

Ex: var str = “this is a test string and now test”;

str.replace(/test/g, “tested”);   –   this is a tested string and now tested
