GML Code Example

string_replace(str, substr, newstr);

Argument Description
str The string to be copied.
substr The substring within the string to be replaced.
newstr The new substring to replace the previous one.

Returns: String


You can use this function to parse a string looking for a specific part, which can then be replaced by the new string that you have specified.


GML Code Example

str1 = 'Hello Earth';
 str2 = string_replace(str1, 'Earth', 'World');

This will set str2 to str1, but with its instance of 'Earth' replaced with 'World', resulting in str2 being 'Hello World'.
