How Can I Check For An Empty/undefined/null String In JavaScript?

- 1 answer

I saw this question, but I didn't see a JavaScript specific example. Is there a simple string.Empty available in JavaScript, or is it just a case of checking for ""?

If you just want to check whether there's a truthy value, you can do:

if (strValue) {
    //do something
}

If you need to check specifically for an empty string over null, I would think checking against "" is your best bet, using the === operator (so that you know that it is, in fact, a string you're comparing against).

if (strValue === "") {
    //...
}
