jQuery Replace Strings

Below is simple jQuery code snippets to replace all the dots (.) present on HTML page and then replace it with hyphen.

Earlier I had posted about jQuery solution to substring, split string, trim string and about all string functions, And In this post, see jQuery/JavaScript replace function in action with example.

$(document).ready(function() {
    var strNewString = $('body').html().replace(/./g,'-');
    $('body').html(strNewString);
});

Remember: Replace functions returns a string which contains the updated text. So you need to first assign into a variable and then re-assign it.

Instead of, (.) or "-", text can be anything. All you need is to make change in the replace function arguments and you are good to go.
