Question: replace two same character with whitespace


I am trying to replace the string below with whitespaces using javascript

    function replaceString()
        var str = "ABC**EFG";
        return str.replace(/\*/g, " ");

I received the result as ABC EFG but I expect the result to come with two whitespace. I also tried the same thing using php str.replace but still get the same result.

Is there any other methods i can used to replace the individual asterisk with whitespace??

P/S: The return string will be used as part of the sql query


I ended up return the string without any replacement to sql, then I use sql replace function to perform replacement in the query.

If you're displaying the resulting string in an HTML element then two or more whitespaces will be displayed as only one whitespace. To workaround this fact, use   instead:

return str.replace(/\*/g, ' ');
