How to use if condition with Javascipt function ?


Level 2

I'm trying to check whether ACM data field contains a particular string using if condition. However, that portion isn't working.


I have used below snippet. Can anyone please tell me if there's any issue with the snippet?


<% if ( (rtEvent.ctx.Consumer.PaymentMethod).includes("Direct Pay")) { %> <li>Order ID - <%=rtEvent.ctx.Consumer.OrderId%></li><% } %>



I have already checked value of rtEvent.ctx.Consumer.PaymentMethod  -- it is having value 'Direct Pay' (including quotes).


I can't use "==" for "if" condition. Current value is 'Direct Pay' and after few weeks, it will be Direct Pay.


So I need to use "includes" or any similar method for checking.


Thank you for your help.

Hello @vinay16 

You can use OR operator to check this.

Here is the sample code.

<% if(rtEvent.ctx.Consumer.PaymentMethod=="DirectPay" || rtEvent.ctx.Consumer.PaymentMethod=="'DirectPay'" || )
{ %>
 <li>Order ID - <%=rtEvent.ctx.Consumer.OrderId%></li>
<% } %>

Let me know if that works.

Thank you for suggestion, Manoj.


I will try this. 


Meanwhile, is there anyway to check whether a string is there in the variable. Like "includes" or "contain" methods of JavaScript ?


This will improve the options for the future.

Hello @vinay16 


You can check it via the IndexOf method.


Here is an example.

var textString= "This is the Display Method";
if(textString.indexOf("Display") > 0){
     document.write("Display is available in the string");
     document.write("Display is not available in the string");

Thank you for your reply again.


I was not sure whether document. write works in ACM or not. Also, does indexOf works in ACM?


I know, outside of ACM, indexOf, contain and includes works. I'm finding it difficult to test these 3 in ACM. So, can you please confirm?
