How can I remove backslashes and forwardslashes from a string or remove forwardslash from a url using java script.I’m going to explain to do this by using regular expressions and simple core java script.
var myString = 'Hi how are\ you?'; myString = myString.replace("\\", ""); //myString = myString.replaceAll("\\", ""); // also this is can be use alert(myString); // Hi how are you?
var myString = 'www.mysite.com/'; myString = myString.replace(/\//g,''); //myString = myString.replace(/\/$/,''); // same effect, Note here " $ " mark alert(myString); // www.mysite.com
Note here is the regular expression /\//g and /\/$/. The piece of the string you want replacing is written between the first and last forward slashes.
If you wanted the word ‘book’ replaced you would write /book/g.
