Javascript Adding Spaces Question

5 New Member
Does anyone know how I might add a function to this script that continually adds one space before and after the entire query (not in between every word though)?

Example:

If I type in the textarea: "hello there", before the Change button is clicked the string is " hello there ", and then it is parsed as such?


[HTML]<html>

<head>

<script type = "text/javascript">

function replaceChars() {
var temp = document.subfor m.text.value;


temp = temp.replace(/hello there/gi, "goodbye there");
temp = temp.replace (/this/gi, "that");
temp = temp.replace (/today/gi, "tomorrow") ;


document.subfor m.text.value = temp;
}

</script>

</head>

<body>


<form name="subform">

<textarea rows="8" name="text" cols="31" value=""></textarea>
<br>
<input type=button name=action value="Change" onClick="replac eChars(document .subform.text.v alue);">


</form>
</body>

</html>

[/HTML]
Thanks!

Please use code tags for posting code. Thanks!

Just add a space to beginning and end of the textarea value:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. " " + document...value + " "

I am trying to get javascript to cause a page to post back. I have tried calling _doPostBack from my script, but generates an error "object expected". I think this is because the page's script doesn't contain the method _doPostBack, which needs to be added by asp.net. How can I make asp.net add this script? Thanks, ME --
