how to compare values in an array if they are the same or not

Hi All,

I know this is a Java forum, but since I need help in java script, I thought I should give this forum a shot.
I have an array that contains the following values:

array = {"Yes", null, null, "Yes"}
my goal here is to check the elements to see if they match.

array = {"Yes", null, null, "Yes"} - return "Yes"
array = {"Yes", "Yes", "Yes", "Yes"} - return "Yes"
array = {"Yes", "No", "Yes", "Yes"} - return "Rej" because they don't match
array = {"No", "No", null, null} - return "No"
array = {null, null, null, null} - return null

Anytime the array has a different value other than null, then the return has to be "Rej"

This is what i have so far. How can I do the comparison.

Array_length = myArray.length;

for (i = 0; i < Array_length; i++){
     for (j = i+1; j < Array_length; j++){
          if (myArray[i] == myArray[j]){
Thanks in advance.
