Error jquery each loop return false not end the function

0 votes

I have a function which get a dot seperated string and parse it to array. And I want to loop these array elements and check a value is greater than 255 and return false, if not continue to function statements and return true as end of function. But it never stops the loopand always return true.

Here is code:

checkipAddress = function(value){//instance value: 999.999.999.999 result:true
        debugger
        var array = value.split('.');
        $.each(array, function(index,val){
            debugger
            if(parseInt(val)>255)
                return false; // it should end the loop and exit function with return false.
        });
        return true;
    }

Hii @kartik,

Returning from one function doesn't call as it's end, much less use a specific return value.

If you want to do that, you have to set a variable that the outer function will use:

checkipAddress = function(value){
    var rv = true; // <=== Default return value
    var array = value.split('.');
    $.each(array, function(index,val){
        if(parseInt(val)>255)
            return rv = false; // <=== Assigns false to `rv` and returns it
    });
    return rv; // <=== Use rv here
}

Your function will happily allow IP strings like "0.-234343.-1.0" and "1foo.2foo.3foo.4foo". 

You might consider:

checkipAddress = function(value){
    var rv = true; // <=== Default return value
    var array = value.split('.');
    $.each(array, function(index,str){
        str = $.trim(str);
        var val = +str;
        if(!str || val < 0 || val > 255)
            return rv = false; // <=== Assigns false to `rv` and returns it
    });
    return rv; // <=== Use rv here
}

Hope it helps!!
