JavaScript string comparison

JavaScript does not provides a method to compare the strings. However, You can use the == operator to compare the strings for equality and for inequality comparison, you will use != operator. In the example below, user name and password input by the user are compared with string "Dara" and "pas123" respectively.

<title>string comparison-checking valid input</title>
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
function check(){
var usrname=new String(document.getElementById("txtname").value );
var pass=new String(document.getElementById("txtpassword").value );
if( usrname=="Dara" && pass=="pas123"){
document.getElementById("divres"). innerHTML="Valid!";
document.getElementById("divres"). style.color="green";
document.getElementById("divres"). innerHTML="Invalid!";



<form action="#">
<div id="divres"></div>
<td>Enter user name:</td><td> <input type="text" id="txtname" ></td>

<td>Enter password: </td><td><input type="password" id="txtpassword" ></td>
<td><input type="button" name="submit" value="Submit" onclick="check()"></td>
