StringBuilder::Replace Method (Char, Char)

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

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

public:
StringBuilder^ Replace(
	wchar_t oldChar, 
	wchar_t newChar
)

Parameters

oldChar
Type: System::Char
The character to replace.
newChar
Type: System::Char
The character that replaces oldChar.

Return Value

Type: System.Text::StringBuilder
A reference to this instance with oldChar replaced by newChar.

A StringBuilder with all instances of oldChar replaced with newChar. The size of the StringBuilder is unchanged because characters are only replaced. This method is case-sensitive.

The following example demonstrates the Replace method.


using namespace System;
using namespace System::Text;
void Show( StringBuilder^ sbs )
{
   String^ rule1 = "0----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4---";
   String^ rule2 = "01234567890123456789012345678901234567890123";
   Console::WriteLine( rule1 );
   Console::WriteLine( rule2 );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0}", sbs );
   Console::WriteLine();
}

int main()
{

   //                  0----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4---
   //                  01234567890123456789012345678901234567890123
   String^ str = "The quick br!wn d#g jumps #ver the lazy cat.";
   StringBuilder^ sb = gcnew StringBuilder( str );
   Console::WriteLine();
   Console::WriteLine( "StringBuilder.Replace method" );
   Console::WriteLine();
   Console::WriteLine( "Original value:" );
   Show( sb );
   sb->Replace( '#', '!', 15, 29 ); // Some '#' -> '!'
   Show( sb );
   sb->Replace( '!', 'o' ); // All '!' -> 'o'
   Show( sb );
   sb->Replace( "cat", "dog" ); // All "cat" -> "dog"
   Show( sb );
   sb->Replace( "dog", "fox", 15, 20 ); // Some "dog" -> "fox"
   Console::WriteLine( "Final value:" );
   Show( sb );
}
