Replace white space with comma

lulu50 asked
Last Modified: 2020-01-28

I have a textarea where I want the system to replace all the white spaces with a comma.

my code works if I hit the break between each input but if I have my text without hitting the break between each text
it will not replace the white spaces with a comma.

this is what I have:

           var str = $('#ItemList').val();

            str = $('#ItemList').val().replace(/(?:\r\n|\r|\n)/g, ',');
            var partsOfStr = str.split(', ');

Open in new window

 Thank you for your help
