How do I test if a suggest control has successfully found something?

Name of control is "searchByName" with a sql "SELECT PARTY.PARTY_ID, CONCAT(PARTY.FIRST_NAME, " ", PARTY.LAST_NAME) AS PARTY_NAME FROM PARTY"

Database record is something like this

party_id, party_first_name, party_last_name
1,John,Lewis
2,Peter,Pan

Then on the Dynaform I would like to check if something is found. For example if "Peter" is input and selected

$("#searchByName").getValue() gives me "2" and $("#searchByName").getText() gives "Peter Pan"

However when I try below it always alert "found" even if I input "Mary" into the control

if ($("#searchByName").getValue() == $("#searchByName").getText() ) {
alert("not found");
} else {
alert("found");
}

Hello,

Your code works fine, the only issue is you have to add an event so that whenever the value changes, the function is called upon which the alert will execute:
Code: Select all
function check()
{
//alert($("#suggest").getValue());
if ($("#suggest").getValue() == $("#suggest").getText() ) {
alert("not found");
} else {
alert("found");
}
  
}
$('#suggest').setOnchange(check);
where $('#suggest') is the id of my suggest control.
This code works perfect in my case.

Please let me know if this helps.

Best Regards,
Zainab
