String replace not working

Hi,

I am trying to remove the flash string in the code behind, so the string I want to actually remove is

wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" allowfullscreen="1" play="1" quality="high" loop="0"

I am using the code below but it does not seem to remove it. Would be grateful for any help.
Thanks

Dim strHtml As String
Dim strHtmlReplace As String
 strHtml = pageEditor.Content
  strHtmlReplace = "wmode=""transparent"" type=""application/x-shockwave-flash"" pluginspage=""http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"" allowfullscreen=""1"" play=""1"" quality=""high"" loop=""0"""

            strHtml.Replace(strHtmlReplace, " ")

I don't see an issue with your code.

where this HTML file is located? is it on web server? if so, a permission issue may prevent you from changing it.  Use strHtml.IndexOf to see if this return a positive value and confirm the permission issue.


 Try to if you can change it if you copy it to a local drive.

I changed it to .Remove and now I get the error

Message=Conversion from string "wmode="transparent" type="applic" to type 'Integer' is not valid.

I'm hoping you are using the RETURN VALUE of Replace rather than expecting the string to be altered.....Replace returns a new string.

Just wanted to be sure.

If that's the case, the only problem I can't actually SEE is whether the white space truly matches...perhaps there are some mismatches between spaces and tabs or newlines.  If you aren't sure about those you could use a pattern replacement where you indicate ANY whitespace with \w

Hello,

I tried to check aforesaid code and you need to store in variable then you will see that it is doing replace if you are playing with same variable i.e. strHtml

Please find below code:

Dim strHtml As String
        Dim strHtmlReplace As String
        strHtml = "wmode=""transparent"" type=""application/x-shockwave-flash"" pluginspage=""http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"" allowfullscreen=""1"" play=""1"" quality=""high"" loop=""0"""
        strHtmlReplace = "wmode=""transparent"" type=""application/x-shockwave-flash"" pluginspage=""http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"" allowfullscreen=""1"" play=""1"" quality=""high"" loop=""0"""

        strHtml = strHtml.Replace(strHtmlReplace, " ")
        MessageBox.Show(strHtml)

Open in new window


Best Regards,
Mohit Pandit
