Prototype Expressing Range

Advertisements

Prototype Ranges represent an interval of values. The preferred way to obtain a range is to use the $R utility function.

You can create a big range of values using a simple syntax as follows:

$R(1, 10).inspect();

$R('a', 'e').inspect();

This will produce following result:

['1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10']

['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e']

The include() Method

This method determines whether the value is included in the range:

Syntax:

Range.include(value);

Return Value :

Example:

<html>
<head>
<title>Prototype examples</title>
   <script type="text/javascript" 
   src="/javascript/prototype.js">
   </script>
<script>

function showResult()
{
   alert ( "Test 1 : " + $R(1, 10).include(5));
   // Returns true
   
   alert ( "Test 2 : " + $R('a', 'h').include('x'));
   // Returns flase
  
}

</script>
</head>

<body>

  <p>Click the button to see the result.</p>
  <br />

  <br />
  <input type="button" value="Result" onclick="showResult();"/>

</body>
</html>

To understand it in better way you can Try it yourself.
