    Default

    Perhaps you could be more specific?

    If you want to convert every character to a blank space, use the String method length() to determine how many characters there are then make a new String with that many spaces.

    If there are certain restrictions on the character you could use a regular expression:

    Java Code:
    String data = ...
    String regex = /*whatever*/
    data = data.replaceAll(regex, " ");
    If it's a particular character:

    Java Code:
    String data = ...
    char chToBeReplaced = /*whatever*/
    data = data.replace(String.valueOf(chToBeReplaced), " ");
