Javascript Regular Expression to match a comma delimited list

This method uses the JavaScript String's match() method to parse a comma delimited list and show its content in a Panel control.

Give it a try here http://jsfiddle.net/38tXU/


function ParseList(list) {
    var reg = list.match(/\w+(,\w+)*/g);
    document.getElementById("pnl").innerHTML = "Total length:" + reg.length + "<br />";
    for (var i = 0; i < reg.length; i++) {
        document.getElementById("pnl").innerHTML += "Token:\'" + reg[i] + "\'<br />";
    }
}
