jQuery's Equiv. of str_replace

Does jQuery have an equivalent of PHP’s str_replace? I am needing to replace spaces in a text box with hyphens.

I googled and looked in the forum search but wasn’t coming up with a good answer.

someString.replace(/\\s/, "-");

For more info see the W3C site on the replace() function.

To add to the above, you don’t even need a regular expression:

str.replace(' ', '-');

Also please note that that isn’t jQuery, that’s JavaScript. jQuery is not a language. If you have a text box, you’ll probably have to do something like this with jQuery:

var textarea = $('#the_textarea');
var txt = textarea.val();
textarea.val(txt.replace(' ', '-'));
