Hi Experts, just needed some help on carrying out the below:

Strip hashes off of the below variable (user_id), and separate the values and place them in a hidden input field using a loop for each of the values using document.write. Placing the values in the "Name" and "Value" fields as below:


var user_id= "1##2##3##4##5##6##7##8##9##10";
 
<input type="hidden" name="1" value="1">
 
<input type="hidden" name="2" value="2">
 
<input type="hidden" name="3" value="3">
 
<input type="hidden" name="4" value="4">
 
<input type="hidden" name="5" value="5">
 
<input type="hidden" name="6" value="6">
 
<input type="hidden" name="7" value="7">
 
<input type="hidden" name="8" value="8">
 
<input type="hidden" name="9" value="9">
 
<input type="hidden" name="10" value="10">

I like to use the String object's match function:
<html>
<script>
   var user_id = "1##2##3##4##5##6##7##8##9##10";
   var a = user_id.match(/\d+/g);
   for (var index = 0; index < a.length; index++)
   {
      document.write("<input type='hidden' name='" + a[index] + "' value='" + a[index] + "'>");
   }
</script>
<body>
   
</body>
</html>

This is probably better, matching non-hashes:

<html>
<script>
   var user_id = "1##2##3##4##5##6##7##8##9##10";
   var a = user_id.match(/[^#]+/g);
   for (var index = 0; index < a.length; index++)
   {
      document.write("<input type='hidden' name='" + a[index] + "' value='" + a[index] + "'>");
   }
</script>
<body>
   
</body>
</html>

I've tested this and it hasn't worked both IE and FF crash.

<html>
 
<script>
 
function abdi() {
   var user_id = "1##2##3##4##5##6##7##8##9##10";
   var a = user_id.match(/[^#]+/g);
   for (var index = 0; index < a.length; index++)
   {
      document.write("<input type='hidden' name='" + a[index] + "' value='" + a[index] + "'>");
   }
 
   }
</script>
 
 
 
<body>
<a href="#" onclick="abdi();">test</a>
</body>
</html>
