After adding the above links, use the following:

$(document).ready(function () {
   $(“.myclass”).on(“click”, function () {
      // use this way to replace complete string
      $(“.myclass p”).replaceWith(“Your new text is here”);

      //use this to replace selected string
      $(“.myclass p”).text(function (index, text) {
         return text.replace(‘Click me to erase old text’, ‘Your new text is here’);
      });
   });
});

That’s it you are done!
