global is a read-only boolean property of RegExp objects. It specifies whether a particular regular expression performs global matching, i.e., whether it was created with the "g" attribute.

Return Value

Returns "TRUE" if the "g" modifier is set, "FALSE" otherwise.

Example

var re = new RegExp( "string" ); 
if ( re.global ) {
   console.log("Test1 - Global property is set");  
} else { 
   console.log("Test1 - Global property is not set");  
} 
re = new RegExp( "string", "g" ); 

if ( re.global ) { 
   console.log("Test2 - Global property is set");  
} else { 
   console.log("Test2 - Global property is not set");  
}          

Output
