JQuery :: Possible To Replace String Characters?
I am running a search on my web site which uses jQuery to take the search terms and build up a URL based on them. For example, if someone searches for "chair" my URL will be appended with /chair/. However, if someone searches for something which is two words, for example "chair covers" I need the space in between to be replaced by a "+" sign so the URL will now be appended with /chair+covers/ I'm not sure if it is possible to string replace in jQuery?

Here is my current code:
function sendSearchInput(whichelement,hiddeninput,formid) {
hval = $("#"+hiddeninput).val();
$("#"+formid).submit(function() {
if ($("input:#"+whichelement).val() != hval) {
var searchval = $("#"+whichelement).val().toLowerCase();
return true;
return false;

This will basically check that the form is not the default value (specified in the hidden field "hval") and then change the search term to lowercase and append the URK using "attr". I have tried a couple of methods including
var test = searchval.text().replace(' ','+');
And then trying to alert "test" to check it but the function just simply doesn't work.

Jquery :: Ascii Characters In String?
I have a string that I'm trying to send over to my server code. I am getting a lot of these characters in the data - �. Do I need to serialize the data or what? I'm using utf-8 encoding but that doesn't fix it. I think that something is happening to my data on the JQuery side. Here is what my JQ looks like.

var id = $('#id').val();
var dataString = 'id='+ id;


Here is a sample string:

`%ca 32d?

This string then becomes �32d? with UTF-8 and Ê32d?with iso-8859-1

EDIT:I noticed that this encoding issue only happens when the string begins with %ca. All others seem to work as expected.

Jquery :: $.each() Iterating Over Characters In A String?
I have json data being returned as a collection:

var foo = ["6", "7", "33"]

using JSONP in jQuery. Since I'm using JSONP, the data is being returned to a callback function, which is interpreting it as a string instead of a collection. Do I need to run eval(foo) on the string in the callback before handling it as a collection, or is there some other means of recasting it?

Jquery :: Variable Is Undefined When The Value Has String Characters?
I am declaring a variable in jquery. The value is a part number from a data warehouse. It is always a string even though most of the time it is a string of numbers. When the part id is all numbers like '4125052' there are no errors but if the first digit is a string like 'B4125052' then I get the error-- `Error: 'B4125052' is undefined. When I go to view/source on the outputted page I see the value as $itemid=B4125052; (no quotes).

<%string id = Model.Part.Select(x => x.Id).FirstOrDefault().Trim(); %>
<%int partsetupid = Model.PartSetUp.PartSetUpID; %>
<%int numtoprint = Model.NumContinuationTCs; %>[code].....

Jquery :: Detect Some Conflictive Characters In A String?
I have a file input in a form that uploads a mp3 file, but I´d like to detect conflictive characters to my system in the filename, like ! @ or any other.All codes I´ve found replace these characters, but I just want to detect them to alert the user. I think it will be easy with regular expressions, but I dont know about them.

I´m working in a CodeIgniter application that allows user to upload mp3 files to the server.I use jQuery to manage client side forms. The CI upload class converts spaces in the file name to underscores and everything works.But testing the application I uploaded a mp3 file with a (!) in the name, and I got troubles with it.I just want to insert a javascript conditional before the file is uploaded to evaluate if the user´s filename contains a (!) (or any other I´d like to add later) to ask for the file to be renamed if it does.

Jquery :: Omitting Special Characters From The String?
I have to implement some type of pixel for analytic and it requires passing a session Id in the url string. My sessionID contains special characters. It looks something like this BFhGlzT6FBkDr2Zndp0!-1309 I need to remove the (-!) characters from this string, how do I achieve this using jquery? I need to make sure jquery remove those characters before it render otherwise it will not report a visit to analytic.

img src="
id=T6PtTyRSqhGPYBhp84frwth67n6fL7wcLBFhGlzT6FBkDr2Zndp0!-130901808!1319637471144&m=2&m=2" alt="">

Before this pixel fire off, I need to replace the character in the sessionId string to remove !- and keep in mind session id will change every time there is a new session. I need a code that is generic so it works no matter what session id is, it needs to delete special characters from it.

Convert A String With Escaped Characters Into A "normal" String?
Let's say that I have like this: "\n", I need to convert it to a string like if the interpreter would do it:

A simple replace like this wouldn't work:

function aaa(s){
return s.replace(/\n/gm,'

I need this behaviour:

"Line 1
Line 2" => Line 1<Line break>Line 2
"Line 1\nLine 1" => Line 1

How To Tell If String Contains Multibyte Characters
Is it possible in Javascript to detect if a string contains multibyte characters? If so, is it possible to tell which ones? The problem I'm running into is this (Unicode char doesn't show up right).
s = " ";
alert(s.length); // '2'
alert(s.charAt(0)); // '--'
alert(s.charAt(1)); // '--'

As I understand it now, all strings in Javascript are represented as a series of UTF-16 code points, which means that regular characters actually take up 2 bytes (16 bits), so my usage of "multibyte" in the title was a bit off. Some characters do not fall in the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP), such as the string in the example above, and so they take up two code points (32 bits).
