    Question Encrypt / Decrypt using ASCII?

    This is a program where I have to encrypt a String to ASCII and then decrypt it back to String. I'm almost done and this is what I have so far:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <script type="text/javascript">
    //This is the function that encrypts...
    function thisFunction() {
            var firstMessage = document.thisForm.clearText0.value;
    	var someString = firstMessage;
    	var j;
    	for(j = 0; j < someString.length; j++) {
                    var thisArray=new Array();
    	        document.thisForm.clearText.value += thisArray[j] = someString.charCodeAt(j) + " ";
    //This is the function that is supposed to decrypt...
    function thisFunction2() {
            var secondMessage = document.thisForm.clearText.value;
            var thisArray2 = new Array(secondMessage);
            for(var i = 0; i < thisArray2.length; i++) {
                document.thisForm.clearText2.value += thisArray2[i] = String.fromCharCode(i);
    <form name="thisForm">
    Message to be encrypted...
    <textarea rows="6" cols="30" name="clearText0"></textarea>
    <input type="button" value="Encrypt" onclick="thisFunction()"/>
    <textarea rows="6" cols="30" name="clearText"></textarea>
    <input type="button" value="Decrypt" onclick="thisFunction2()"/>
    <textarea rows="6" cols="30" name="clearText2"></textarea>
    The encryption works perfectly but the decryption doesn't ouput anything. What could be wrong?

    that doesn't encrypt anything, a; it does is double the char code...
    use different keys and massages, and use XOR instead of addition.

    ps: secondMessage.split("") will help, your array only contains one element with the while sting in it...
