Replaces the specified substring with a new string.

Deprecated: This command is not recommended for use in new scripts. Use the StrReplace function instead.

StringReplace, OutputVar, InputVar, SearchText , ReplaceText, ReplaceAll


The name of the output variable in which to store the result of the replacement process.
The name of the input variable whose contents will be read from. Do not enclose the name in percent signs unless you want the contents of the variable to be used as the name.
The string to search for. Matching is not case sensitive unless StringCaseSense has been turned on.
SearchText will be replaced with this text. If omitted or blank, SearchText will be replaced with blank (empty). In other words, it will be omitted from OutputVar.

If omitted, only the first occurrence of SearchText will be replaced. But if this parameter is 1, A, or All, all occurrences will be replaced.

Specify the word UseErrorLevel to store in ErrorLevel the number of occurrences replaced (0 if none). UseErrorLevel implies "All".


When the last parameter is UseErrorLevel, ErrorLevel is given the number occurrences replaced (0 if none). Otherwise, ErrorLevel is set to 1 if SearchText is not found within InputVar, or 0 if it is found.


For this and all other commands, OutputVar is allowed to be the same variable as an InputVar.

The built-in variables %A_Space% and %A_Tab% contain a single space and a single tab character, respectively. They are useful when searching for spaces and tabs alone or at the beginning or end of SearchText.

[v1.0.45+]: The AllSlow option became obsolete due to improvements to performance and memory utilization. Although it may still be specified, it has no effect.
