Changing values input in a text box

Post icon  Posted 24 February 2009 - 11:37 AM

I'm a beginner with this stuff, so I'm not sure what sort of code I should use.

Basically I want users to put in words and every time "x" letter goes in, I want it to turn into "y" when they hit a button.

I think arrays would be a good way to go, but I'm not quite sure how I'm going to make it translate S:

Any tips?

I would suggest using a Global Regular Expression with the replace() Methodfunction. Here's an example that takes a string, what to search for and what to replace it with

function replaceAll(str,searchFor, replaceWith)
	return str.replace(/searchFor/g,replaceWith);
