View Full Version : Checking for existence of certain text?

I'm using this onclick event below:



onClick="javascript:modify('text value here');" href="#" onFocus="if(this.blur)this.blur()">Click Here</a>


I use this to load whatever text value there is into a text box area, but was wondering if there was a way I could check for the existence of a certain piece of text & if found it would load some different pre-specified text instead into the text box field?

Thanks!

Please try the following example


<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function modify(str){
if(str.indexOf("text value here")!=-1){
document.forms["myForm"]["t1"].value="New String"
}
else{
document.forms["myForm"]["t1"].value=str
}

}
//-->
</script>


<a href="#null" onclick="modify('text value here')">Click Here</a>
<a href="#null" onclick="modify('Hello World')">And Here</a>

<form name="myForm">
<input type="text" name="t1">
</form>
