Hi,
Does anyone have a function that will replace stings within a string with new values.
e.g. public String(String theString, String replace, String replaceWith)
This function would replace all occurances of "replace" with "replaceWith" in the original "theString". it would then return this new string
Thanks

Check out the Str class here which has lots of useful methods. Otherwise you could use the replace method in the StringBuffer class.

replace method isuse to replace a character replace(char,char)
for example:
String cat="Sweet Sister";
String m = cat.replace('e','x');
System.out.println(m);
Out put:
Swxxt Sistxr
it will replace the e with x
hope its clear

public static String replace(String s, String repl, String with)
{
if (repl == null)
return s;
if (with == null)
with = "";
int offset = 0;
int p = s.indexOf(repl);
while (p >= 0)
{
s = s.substring(0,p) + with + s.substring(p + repl.length());
offset = p + with.length();
p = s.indexOf(repl,offset);
}
return s;
}
