    JavaScript equivalent of SQL in

    raoul

      Hi all,

       

      I do not know where to ask this question, but I am trying to write a javasctript for my dynamic action.

       

      Now I have to check a variable for values and I do it like this:

       

      if ($v("APEX_ITEM") == 1 && $v("APEX_ITEM")==2) { ....}
      

       

      In SQL I would write:

       

      apex_item in (1,2)
      

       

      Is there something like that for Javascript because I have a list of ten id's.

       

      Thank you.

      Raoul

          You could use indexOf, but that doesn't work in IE.

           

          Try this:

           

          var list = [ "1", "2", "3", "4"];
          alert(jQuery.inArray( "3", list ));  //this will return 2
          alert(jQuery.inArray( "5", list )); //this will return -1
          

           

          If the element is not in list, inArray will return -1. So basically, you need to check if the returned value is -1 (the element is not in list) or greater (the element is in list).
