    Best way to change a string

    Hi

    I have a javascript page:

    Code:
    var quantity_in_stock_S = 2
    var quantity_in_stock_M = 2
    var quantity_in_stock_L = 1
    What would be the best way to take away 1 from a number using a javascript function?

    I am trying to make a function so that when you click on a HTML button connected to a size it will - 1 (take 1 away) from an external javascript page.

    I don't know why you asked about strings when you're clearly asking about numbers.

    You can just subtract 1 from your number, like so

    Code:
    quantity_in_stock_S -= 1;
    is the same as

    Code:
    quantity_in_stock_S = quantity_in_stock_S - 1;

    I am looking to literally replace the number on exactly the same line. Is that possible with some write function?

    the more accurately you explain the problem, the faster you can get help. the way you are asking, helpers can't help you
