replace a string in jquery

Replace method is used to replace a string in jQuery, but it is little difference in compression of programming language.

If you simply use this method, it will replace the only first matches string.

If you use (/g) with replace method, it will replace all case sensitive matches string.

If you use (/gi) with replace method, it will replace all matches string.

Note: Replace functions returns a string which contains the updated text. It will not modify the current variable, So you need to re-assign it.

If you are only replacing (.) in a string, you need to make some change in the replace function arguments.
