    Count characters between 2 specified words in javascript

    Hi guys,

    I have a text(string): >0000: brown fox <0000

    now i want to count the characters between the words >0000 and <0000. How do i do that? . Obviously the result will be 9(with spaces) or 8(without spaces). i dont mind if its with spaces or without. i prefer it would be without though.

    What is the coding that is needed?

    Any help will be deeply appreciated guys! thanx in advance

    You may use the length property to count the number of characters of a string.

    If you don't want the whitespaces to be counted, use the replace property to replace the occurences of space with empty string.

    You need to create a new variable to store your new string with the whitespaces replaced with empty string.

    var string = "brown fox";
    var stringNoSpaces = string.replace(" ","");
    var stringCount = stringNoSpaces.length;
    document.getElementById("sample").innerHTML = stringCount;

    I hope this helps. Thank you.
