String Manipulation with JS

Hi Experts,

Can anyone tell me how to search for end extract string paths of a string using JavaScript?

For example, say you have a string like ABC{23}, I want to extract this as "ABC" as str1 and "23" as str2. Here is my pseudo-code for this:

pos = strpos(str0, "{")
str1 = substr(str0, 0, pos) //get everything until "{"

str0 = substr(str0, pos+1) //get everything after "{"
pos = strpos(str0, "}"
str2 = substr(str0, 0, pos) //get everything until "}"

Any help will be appreciated.

One approach, using the substring function:

var source = 'ABC{23}';

var openBraceIndex = source.indexOf('{');
var closeBraceIndex = source.indexOf('}', openBraceIndex + 1);
var str1 = source.substring(0, openBraceIndex);
var str2 = source.substring(openBraceIndex + 1, closeBraceIndex);

Hi,
and an alternative way would be using Javascript and regular expressions:
var source = "ABC{23}";
var myRegexp = /(\w*)\{(\w*)\}/g;
var match = myRegexp.exec(source);
alert(match[1]);  // ABC
alert(match[2]);  // 23
