StringBuilder.Replace Method (String, String)

Replaces all occurrences of a specified string in this instance with another specified string.

Namespace:  System.Text
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

member Replace : 
        oldValue:string * 
        newValue:string -> StringBuilder 


Type: System.String
The string to replace.
Type: System.String
The string that replaces oldValue, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

Type: System.Text.StringBuilder
A reference to this instance with all instances of oldValue replaced by newValue.


oldValue is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The length of oldValue is zero.


Enlarging the value of this instance would exceed MaxCapacity.

The strings to replace are checked on an ordinal basis; that is, the replacement is not culture-aware. If newValue is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), all occurrences of oldValue are removed. This method is case-sensitive.

The following example demonstrates the Replace method.
