Hi,

I want to delete all the comma(,) and dot(.) from a string. That is if the input is "1,236,4as4.00" I want the output to be "12364as400". Any help will be highly appreciated.


Regards,

Something like String.replaceAll("[,\\.]\+", "") should do the trick.

You can use the method String.replaceAll() for this. Note that the argument to the method is a regular expression.
