we have a product that uses Javascript to produce dashboard information running on websphere 6,

i'm looking at a way of returning the day name / number 1-7 from a string of charaters,
I have a string that would contain 7 charaters similar to this 'NNYNNNN' the 'Y' means we deliver to this customer on Wednesday so i need to return '3'  i can do a case ect to trun into wednsday. problem is there can be more than one 'Y' so there would be to many combinations to do in if statements,

in VB i would use indexof,

is there a similar function in javascript?

Do you mean JSP  ?     If yes, then  you could use something like  
<%
     String s = "NNYNNNN";
     if(s.charAt(2) == 'Y') out.print("yes");
     else out.print("no");
%>

Javascript is similar. use this test  page

<script>
  function test(){
          var s = "NNYNNNN";
          if(s.charAt(2) == 'Y') alert("yes");
          else alert("no");
  }
</script>
<html>
<body onload="test();">
</body>
</html>
