    Default Char replace

    Hi all,

    I have a string such as String time = "09:03";

    I would like to replace char ':' with empty char, so to print "0903".

    Is there a way to do this using time.replace() or should I use time.substring() method?

    Thanks

    Susanna

    Have you tried
    Java Code:
    time = time.replace(":", "");
    You can also split the string on ":" and the build the new string with a loop and string builder.

    Just remember, strings are immutable.

    Thanks sunde, using time.replace(':',''); it doesn't work but it works using "".

    ... as you could have read in the API documentation for the String class.
