Here notice that if

z0

variable starts its value from zero then it needed to write conditional function like that

if (ip&&ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')!=''){
   total+=ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')*1;
  }

else if

z0

starts its value from 1 its not needed actually to check both

ip

and

ip.value

property

Who can explain me why needed to check both object and its value if it starts from zero.
I will wait for your responces. thanks in advance

Hi Aze,

If I understand the question correctly ...

The condition if (ip && ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')!='') exploits the "protective" characteristic of logical operartor && . && protects its right argument by not testing it and returning false immediately if the left argument is falsy.

This is safe coding and good practice even if you feel certain that ip will always be valid.

Without this protection, if ip was null , not defined or did not have a value property, then ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'') would throw an error.

Thank you very much for help. But if z0=0 were like that

ip=document.getElementById('txtRow'+(z0));

then ip variable will equal=txtRow0

then it requres like that

if (ip&&ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')!=''){   total+=ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')*1;  }

else
z0=1
then
ip=variable will equal=txtRow1

in this case
it doesn strictly require like below

if (ip&&ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')!=''){   total+=ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')*1;  }

it is enough
to write like that

if (ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')!=''){   total+=ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')*1;  }

I dont know what happans if z0=0
Thanks again for attention

Aze,

If z0==0 , then document.getElementById('txtRow'+(z0)); is equivalent to document.getElementById('txtRow0'); which will return a DOM node or null depending on whether an element with id="txtRow0" is found or not found.

The test if (ip && ip.value.replace(/\D/g,'')!='') is appropriate because of the possibility that ip might, under some condition or other, be null .

Safe code does no harm.

so you want to say that checking both ip and ip.value will return true?

Are there any tutorials about only this? or this a trick?
Thanks againg

Aze,

It's not a trick, it's a feature of javascript, as in most (all?) C-like languages.

Code of this kind runs in millions of web pages every minute of the day.
