    Need to remove carriage returns, spaces, etc.

    lindaeliseruble Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to build a string that is on one line,

       

      1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

       

       

      however, I wind up with each number on a separate line.

       

      1,

      2,

      3,

      4,

      5,

      6,

      7,

      8,

      9

       

      My code looks like this:

       

       

      var xxx = "";

      for (var i=1; i<= nNumWords; i++) {

            global.srchVals[i].name = "Payor Mix";

         global.srchVals[i].mode = 0;

         xxx = i;

         if (i < nNumWords) {

         xxx = xxx + ",";

        //xxx = xxx.replace(/\s+/g,"").trim();

        } else {

         xxx = xxx;

         //xxx = xxx.replace(/\s+/g,"").trim();

        }  

            var PMItms = [xxx];

         //console.println(xxx);

      }

       

      I tried using the following line of code to remove carriage returns and spaces:

       

         xxx = xxx.replace(/\s+/g,"").trim();

       

      But it keeps on giving me the following error:

       

      TypeError: xxx.replace(/\s+/g, "").trim is not a function

       

      Any help is appreciated.

       

      Thanks

       

       

      Linda
