I'm trying to use the replace method to replace all instances of "a" and "b" characters within a string, but I'm running into a problem. I have accomplished this in my VB version without a problem, but the JavaScript version is only replacing the first instance of the character in the string. I've included all of the referenced code below. If anyone could please let me know what I'm doing wrong, that would be great. Thanks for any and all help.Problem: JS version replaces only the first instance of a character, while the VB version replaces all instances of characters.Example value: bababaVB version (works):'Declare variablesDim strA As String = "ZZ~"Dim strB As String = "YY~"Dim strValue_display As String = strValue_originalstrValue_display = strValue_display.replace("a",strA)Response.Write("strValue_display (a):" & strValue_display & "<br />")strValue_display = strValue_display.replace("b",strB)Response.Write("strValue_display (:):" & strValue_display & "<br />")'Resulting value: YY~ZZ~YY~ZZ~YY~ZZ~JScript version (doesn't work)://Declare variablesvar strA = "ZZ~";var strB = "YY~";var strValue_display = strValue_original;strValue_display = strValue_display.replace("a",strA);Response.Write("strValue_display (a):" + strValue_display + "<br />");strValue_display = strValue_display.replace("b",strB);Response.Write("strValue_display (:):" + strValue_display + "<br />");//Resulting value: YY~ZZ~baba

Try this...

var strValue_original = "ababab"var strA = "ZZ~";var strB = "YY~";var strValue_display = strValue_original;strValue_display = strValue_display.replace(/a/g,strA);document.write("strValue_display (a):" + strValue_display + "<br />");strValue_display = strValue_display.replace(/b/g,strB);document.write("strValue_display (b):" + strValue_display + "<br />");
