Javascript Regex to find a exact match for a word begining with dot

In javascript, pattern \bvalue\b lists all "value" in exmaple following:

value is a property of textbox object. Using textbox.value, we can get or set value property of textbox.

\bvalue\b will return 3 matches for above string while I want to return 2 matches that don't have dot precede (textbox.value). What is useful pattern to solve my problem?


One of the simplest solutions will be to match:


And use str.trim() on the resultant string.


This will give the matches that don't have a preceding dot.
