String compare/contains in QML ?

I need some function in QML for comparing strings or checking if some string begins with "http://". In c++ it's easy but in QML I have no idea how to do it :smileysad:

Re: String compare/contains in QML ?

Think of it as JavaScript (since that's what it is) and not QML. Any JavaScript tutorial or reference should cover such things, or you can search.

In this case, someString.substr(0, 7) == "http://" should be true if your string starts with that.
