Re: JavaScript Problem with string equality

Friday, November 8, 2013

As Joseph mentioned, what happens when you break and look at the value for clientId?   Also, when you say the function breaks, do you mean that you're getting an error, or that the comparison fails?  Is Store60A[xxxxxx] supposed to be a string literal?  You have it enclosed in quotes like it is, but then in the alert statement, the quotes are left out.

I trying to check for a certain condition and the if statement is failing.  What I trying to do is check for client id from a drop down box.
When I put in alert statement it captures but when I try to put it in an if statement it breaks I can't figure out why. Example

clientId = list.options[list.selectedIndex].value;

//if(clientId == ("Store 60A[85132600005.45640302410.1111]")){

if("Store 60A[85132600005.45640302410.1111]".equals(clientId)) {

alert("Capture client ID" + Store 60A[85132600005.45640302410.1111]);

alert("not right id");


I tried it two ways and both break the function.  What am I doing wrong with this string.

Thanking you in advance.
