String Util find and replace

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

Recently, I need a tools to find and replace a string for my flash lite program.

I come up with a quick and easy method to do the swap using string.split and array.join.

Unfortunately this method will not work on Action script 1 / Flash 4 version because it doesn’t support string split with a substring as the delimiter

class StringUtil
* @function findReplace
* @description find substring and replace the
* substring with the  new string from the main string
* @param string_source : String
* @param find_string : String
* @param replace_string : String
* @return    String
      public function findReplace( string_source : String, find_string : String, replace_string : String ) : String
            trace( "StringUtils:findReplace invoked" );
            var temp_array : Array = string_source.split( find_string );
            var result_string : String = temp_array.join( replace_string );
            return result_string;

can come handy in many other code situation.
