    javascript question.

    hello.. im new in javascript.. just started learning actually.. i know the basics and i have a question..

    why doesnt this work?

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <body>
    
    <h1>My First JavaScript</h1>
    
    <p id="demo" style="color:#000000;">
    JavaScript can change the style of an HTML element.
    </p>
    
    <script>
    function myFunction()
    {
    x=document.getElementById('demo') // Find the element
    if (x.style.match("ff"))
      {
         x.style="color:#000000";
      }
    else
      {
         x.style="color:#ff0000";          // Change the style
      }
    }
    </script>
    <button type="button" onclick="myFunction()">Click Me!</button>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    Your code was not correct because it was asking the wrong question:
    Code:
    if (x.style.match("ff"))
    Where used, return should be executed unconditionally and always as the last statement in the function.

    That's my signature, it's not part of the damn post!
