Hi,

I have programmed a var (contains postcode information) ,however I wish to crop it down so that I only get returned the value's before a " " has been entered e.g.

If a value of "SO22 6NT" is entered I only want the SO22 in the var,

I can do this in Basic using Instr but dont know how to do this in Javascript, can anyone point me in the correct direction,

Thanks

Nick Gibbons

this will do it

var str = "SO22 6NT"
str = str.substring(0, str.indexOf(" "));
