I've looked on google a lot but can only find examples of string replacing (at no specific position).

You may find that the substring method offers you a way to achieve your goal.
If we knew exactly how the script was intended to be implemented, then we could possibly put together a custom script for you.
You may also use RegExp
Give us a small example of what you need, and, yes, we migh show u an example
so there's no simple way?
here's what I have at the moment
var newstr = "";
for (x = 0; x < so.value.length; x ++)
if (x >= index && x < index+7)
newstr += colour.charAt(x-index);
newstr += so.value.charAt(x);
so.value = newstr;
it replaces a colour in string "so.value" at position "index" with a different one "colour" (7 char hex code).
At the moment i'm looping through the whole string which takes a significant few seconds. (as there's several long strings)

You could use string.replace using a regular expression
substr would probably be a lot faster than looping
But, I tried to figure it out, and it seems you can only read from random indeces, but not write to random indecex in a string.
so.value = so.value.substring(0, index) + colour + so.value.substring(index+7, so.value.length);
Thanks :) it's blazingly fast now.
