Get everything after first character

Is it possible to get all strings after a the first character?

var val = 'asdasd:111122:123123123';
var response = val.substring(val.lastIndexOf(":")+1);

alert(response ); // "123123123"
// Would like: ":111122:123123123"

Thank you!

Answer

Use indexOf(...) instead of lastIndexOf(...)

If you want to include the ":" then do not add one to the index.

Like this:

var val = 'asdasd:111122:123123123';
var response = val.substring(val.indexOf(":"));

alert(response); // ":111122:123123123"
