form request.getParamteter (Help please)


I can't get the if statement to execute. I submit a form and one of the values for the form is 1. I submit and it does not notice the code. What am I doing wrong.
To better understand the code, here it is.
<%String Enter=request.getParameter("answer"); %>

<% if (Enter ==  "1" ){ %>

answer is the parameter that I am bring from the form.

Thank you.

Hello Kurtic19

  Please try like this then you will not get any error

<% if (Enter.equals("1") ){ %>

but "Enter" is "Null" it will give null pointer exception so 1st check it like this

<% if( Enter!=null && Enter.equals("1")) {%>

ok if you had any more queries ask me at somasekhar@webveda.com
