CSS And Javascript Regex/Replace

Mar 20, 2007

I have a little Ajax script and I'm trying to remove some CSS elements from a DIV tag and I'm have a bit of trouble with the Regex. Right now I'm trying to remove the z-index attribute. It can look something like any of these:

z-index: 1000;
z-index: 0;
z-index: 75;

Here's what I'm using right now:

document.getElementById('right_column').innerHTML.replace(/z-index: [0-9]; /gi, "replaced"));

It replaces z-index: 0; just fine but I can't find the correct modifiers to make it work for 2, 3 or 4 digit z-indexes.

Regex/replace White List

Feb 17, 2006

What is the best way to white list a set of allowable characters using
regex or replace? I understand it is safer to whitelist than to
blacklist, but am not sure how to go about it.

Jquery :: Regex - Replace The Src Of An Image When The User Hovers Over It

Jun 29, 2010

I am writing a script that will replace the src of an image when the user hovers over it. I am using jquery and regex to accomplish this and have tested it on my local server but the src of the images on the live server is different and uses a non-relative path.
Here is my code

$(document).ready(function() {
$("img.imagefield").mouseover(function() {
var regex = "^(http|https|ftp)://[a-zA-Z0-9-.]+.[a-zA-Z]{2,3}(:[a-zA-Z0-9]*)?/sites/all/files/[a-zA-Z]*";
var src = $(this).attr("src").match(regex) + "_silly";

RegEx In Javascript

Jul 23, 2005

I have a function which validates the password if there is a number:
function findNumeric(str_obj){
regEx = /d/;
if (str_obj.match(regEx))
return true;
return false;
The problem arises when I put a password with a space in between e.g:
'test test1'. The fucntion returns false. I've tried 's' in the
regEx but the user can put the space anywhere..

Any idea how to solve this problem as I should be able to put any
alplanumeric value into the password, including space.

RegEx In Javascript?

Jul 23, 2005

I have a variable named "acct". I first want to remove any "-" characters
from it's value. After this I want to verify that we have only exactly 12
digits in the variable.

Unfortunately I'm pretty green as far as using RegEx.

/d{12}/.test(acct); should do the second part, but how do I do the first?

Javascript Regex

Dec 21, 2004

In have a string of data like so:

<div id="feedback">
<p>[DEC 12th Anthony]I like it[DEC 12th Anthony]I agree</p>

I'm trying to use regex to add a <br /> before each item in hard brackets so the comments are broken out. Here's what I've tried.

re = /(.*])/gi;
vTemp = aSourceObject.innerHTML.replace(re,"<br />$1");

What I end up getting is:

<div id="feedback">
<p><br />[DEC 12th Anthony]I like it[DEC 12th Anthony]I agree</p>

It gets it right, but only for the first item, not the second one. If I tell it to put the <br /> after then I get

<p>[DEC 12th Anthony]I like it[DEC 12th Anthony]<br />I agree</p>

So its like its reading the entire section in brackets as one match instead of 2 seperate matches..

Is there a way to make one regex to replace a space with " " and a tab with " "?

Currently I'm using two regex's with string.replace( ... ).replace( ... ), but that means it has to run through the string twice. Any way to do what I want in one regex?

I am using Regular Expressions and Javascript to validate a form,

Javascript Regex Expression Challenge

Jul 18, 2006

I am looking out for a regular expression that takes the following format


textfile = name of the file
2006 = year

The file always comes in the same format. however we need to implement checks so that user doesnt enter invalid month/day/hour/minute etc.

I have created the following regular expression

Can anyone guide me as to how do i modify this regex to suit my requirement. This regex currently is not able to handle invalid months or days etc.

Also i do not know how to integrate this regex in my javascript. Pointers or examples will be helpful.

Javascript Replace?

Apr 13, 2006

I see the use of Javascript replace all over the web. What are all the
character sequences? (sorry I am a bit of a newbie at this).

I understand that /g is global and /i is case sensitive, but what are
the rest? I am asking because I am trying to write a function that

On Javascript Replace Method.

Jul 29, 2007

I don't think this is "do-able" but thought I'd better check. Say I
want to replace certain names in some source code as long as they are
not properties (dot properties) of objects. I could use a regular
expression like:

rx = /(?:(.)|)(?:name1|name2|name3)/g;

map = [];
map["name1"] = "a";
map["name2"] = "b";
map["name3"] = "c";

source = source.replace(rx, function ($0, $1) {return $1?

Dot properties like .name1 are not replaced by anything new and they
need to be "skipped" over by this regular expression but other name1
identifiers need replacement with "a".

One problem with this approach is that dot properties like .name1 are
replaced by themselves and this is just unnecessary work. Something
like a "false" return to skip replacement would be nice but the
following doesn't work.

source = source.replace(rx, function ($0, $1) {return $1?

There are other ways to get around this by using something else
besides replace() but I wanted to see if it could be done with the
replace() method.

String Replace And Reg Exp In Javascript

Mar 31, 2006

I've a function like this: Code:

function submit_msg() {
if (egsd.value == 'yes') {
write_msg("<b>" + chatkeo.value + " : " + chatmsg.value + "</b><br />");
} else {
write_msg(chatkeo.value + " : " + chatmsg.value + "<br />");

Now I need to do some string replace in chatmsg.value, ie, I need to look for some piece of text in chatmsg.value, and in case they are present (there may be multiple occurences of the same), to replace them with something else. This is what I got by doing a google search: Code:

function replaceAll( str, from, to ) {
var idx = str.indexOf( from );

while ( idx > -1 ) {
str = str.replace( from, to );
idx = str.indexOf( from );
return str;}

chatmsg.value = replaceAll( chatmsg.value, "string to replace", "new string" );
And I place this second function just above the previous one. But it's not working. Any help friends?

Location Replace And JAVASCRIPT Keeps Running?

Mar 12, 2011

I was debugging my code looking for a loop. So in the process I added a confirm request and if the user clicked cancel I coded location.replace("Kill.html"). Problem was that the JAVASCRIPT continued to run until either it finished or I used the Task Manager to end the session. :( There3 was a small difference in browsers: Firefox put up the new screen while continuing to run the JAVASCRIPT while IE didn't put up the new screen until after the JAVASCRIPT was finished. I could tell the JAVASCRIPT was still running because the confirm messages kept popping up.

Issues Getting And Regex'ing A Url

Jan 9, 2006

Basically i want to get the current url, and then replace http:// with
something else.

Here is the current code.

var current_url = window.document.location;
var re = new RegExp("http://", "g");
if(re.test(current_url)) {

me = current_url.replace(re,"http://www.addme.com/");

window.alert("found :: " + me + " :: " + current_url);
} else {

if my page was http://ww.google.com 'd get the alert to be:

found :: undefined :: http://www.google.com.

I dont understand why i am getting undefined. When re.test() works.
surely that means the regex is correct.

Space In REGEX In IE6

May 9, 2007

I was using the following code:

element.value = element.value.replace(/ /g,'');

to remove all the spaces in a string.

However in IE6 it complained with and "Expected ')'" error.

How can I tell IE6 to replace just spaces (i.e. not using s)?

I tried / / and /[ ]/ but neither of them worked either.

Divisions And Regex

I'm writing an ECMAScript tokeniser and parser and trying to find out if I can eliminate the switching from tokenising "/" as start of regex or the division operator depending on the parser feedback - essentially, if I can make the tokeniser independent of the parser. (I have a gut feeling this needs too much special casing to be worth it). Code:
