HTML Question

Find all instances in text and replace all

I am trying to create a table and replace all instances inside the td not just the first one. In this case replace all the "/" inside the td tag and not just the first one.

Here is my code:

HTML

<table border="1">
<tr><td class="abc">apple</td></tr>
<tr><td class="abc">ball</td></tr>
<tr><td class="abc">cat</td></tr>
<tr><td class="abc">dog/ss/s</td></tr>
</table>


jQuery

$('.abc').each(function() {
var xyz = $(this).text();
$(this).text(xyz.replace('/', 'puppy'));
});


Here is a working example: Fiddle

Please help!

Answer

use regex with global g

 $('.abc').each(function() {
   var xyz = $(this).text();
   $(this).text(xyz.replace(/\//g, 'puppy'));
 });
