Hi Experts,

I wonder if this is possible.

I have a string that looks like so: '{series:block1,singletonLoad:null}'

and I need to make it look like so;- {"series":"block1","singletonLoad":"null"}

how do i achieve the desired result using regular expressions please.

Thank you

<script>
var a =  '{series:block1,singletonLoad:null}';
alert(a)

a = a.replace(/([^\{\}\,\:]+)/g,"\"$1\"")
alert(a)
</script>

Depends on the regex version you're using, but this should work with perl's engine:

s/(\w+)/\"$1\"/g

for a generic one similar to the previous (@senter), but more compatible:
a = a.replace(/([a-zA-Z0-9]+)/g,'"$1"');
alert(a);
