I would like to be able to replace word, or parts of words, submitted in a text box before uploading.  How it works now, is they type in the information and hit submit, in a label below the TextBox, it shows what they typed, and how it will look. Then a button become visible for them to continue.  What i would like to do is parse through what they typed and replace or delete unexceptionable words or parts of word.  I know this can be done, but don't know how.

Thanks.

BTW  It's in  c#

use the .replace to replace the text
string myString = TextBox1.Text.ToString();  
        string replaceString = myString.Replace("oldtext","newtext");

To remove or replace words from the string you will need to determine what needs to be replaced and this could prove problematic as you would need access to a dictionary to identify non-word strings and a listing of all invalid/reserved words
