I can I check if a string contains another string in it.?
I would like to check if the string "time out" is contained in my string.
For this I tried:
if(errorStr.indexOf("timed out") != -1)
but it does not work
Any help would be appreciated

Actually, the way you tried is the right way. Just remember it is case sensitive. If your string is "Connection Timed Out" and you look for "timed out", it will find nothing.

Thanks- I learnt that the string would be
"took longer than alloted time".
I did the same, but it isn't working.Most examples that I have seen ,use a single word like "time" not an entire string.
How can I check if "took longer than alloted time". is contained?

Same thing.
if (errorStr.indexOf("took longer than alloted time") != -1) {
   // do stuff
}
