dojo script to find the substring


Surender Biyyala (403748) | asked Aug 06 '14, 1:07 p.m.
 Hi All,

Can someone help me on how to find whether a given string contains a specific sub-string.

here is my scenario,
I have written a Script based condition where I`m reading the value of an attribute(Multi select). here when i select multiple values I`m getting a string with comma separated values but i want to know whether the user selected the option which I`m interested in.

Thanks
Surender

You should refer to the Dojo documentation: http://dojotoolkit.org/reference-guide/1.10/dojo/string.html#dojo-string

I suppose you have a JavaScript String object, not necessarily a Dojo String object. In this case, either the indexOf() or the search() function should work for you.

Another approach is to split the string using comma as the separator. Then you can check whether any item in the resulting array is a match.
