Compare strings

JW
Hi,

I'm trying to see if a certain string matches a predefined string so I've
tried:
--------------
If txtCondition3 = "NO THEFT COVER unless client claim free and occupied
prems for 3 yrs" Then
response.write "1st condition"
Else
response.write "2nd condition"
End If
--------------
But I'm getting neither response!!!

Any ideas why that would be?

Thanks, Jon

That's not possible. It's either true or false. There is no inbetween.
Are you sure these lines of code are executing? Are they nested within
another if or a sub that you're not calling or something like that?

If you have the quoted string in one line it surely works

How do I compare strings in javascript? The "==" double equals or "!=" doesn't seem to work in this case. I'm sure string comparison has been explained before but searching Google didn't find any code that looked similar to this one: ----- function CheckPassword(val,val2, str) { var strInput = new String(val.value);

I've got different result when comparing two strings using "==" and string.Compare(). The two strings seems to have same value "1202002" in the quick watch, and both have the same length 7 which I have tried to print out by debug.writeline(). But the "==" operator results false, and string.Compare() results true. Somebody helps me!

Hello! Below I have two different ways to test if the instance tb.Text contains the string "Programmer" So which one to use is it just a matter of taste ? Or could it be some advantage to one before the other. In a book I read they had used the second one but I prefer the first one because it it clearer.
