This is very similar to our previous method and to be honest, every time I have used it, it brings back the same result. It is supposed to result in the last position of your string value, but it always returns the starting position.
The Link() Method
var website="Developer Shed!"
document.write("<p>Here is a link: " + website.link("http://www.devshed.com") + "</p>")
Similar to the IndexOf() method, the Match() method allows you to search a string of text for a specified string. However, instead of returning the numeric position for your result, it returns the actual string itself, or null if it does not find the value. Here it is in code:
var love="I love Gorillas!"
document.write(love.match("I") + "<br />")
document.write(love.match("love") + "<br />")
document.write(love.match("to eat") + "<br />")
The mind shattering results:
I love null Gorillas
