Replacing each char in string with an asterisk.

  • # October 31, 2012 at 10:49 am

    Been up for 30+ hours.. i’m so tired and not thinking correctly. All i’m doing is replacing each char in the string with an asterisk. Is there an easier way, or better way? What i have works but i feel that maybe a regex isn’t necessary.

    var word = "Chowder"; // Normally dynamic but for this sake, static.
    word = word.replace(/./g, "*");

    // To test
    ​// Output: *******​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

    Perhaps just check the length of the string and then just write out that number of asterisks?
