• Seaching Strings

    How does one do a simple string search in js?

    I want to get a simple true/false answer with if string1 is inside string2 at any position in the string.

    If string1 is a literal, you can do this:
    (string2.search(/string1/)==-1)

    Otherwise...
    (string2.search(new RegExp(string1))==-1)

    Ok, so it is a literal, and if string2 is part of an object, the same applies right?

    I should be able to do...

    if(ojb.string2.search(/string1/)==-1

    That would be if string1 is NOT found right?

    What are the //'s for? Are they saying that string1 is literal?

    As long as it can be coerced into a string, yes.

    That would be if string1 is NOT found right?

    It's a shorthand method of expressing a regexp.
