I am unable to wrap my head around this, because from what i can tell, this should be working... It is possible that my syntax is incorrect, but the same syntax is working properly on other areas of the page that call this same js function:

            $(":submit[value='add']").click(function (e) {
                e.preventDefault();
                var $r = $(this).closest("td").prev("td").find("span").text();
                var $h = $(this).closest("tr").find("input:hidden:eq(0)").val();
                var $t = $(this).closest("td").next("td").find(":text");

                if ($r <= $h) {
                    $t.val($r);
                    $(this).closest("tr").prevAll("tr[class^='headerrow']:first").find("td").css("background-color", "#F5F500");
                    $(this).closest("tr").prevAll("tr[class^='headerrow']:first").find("td").css("color", "#333");
                }
                if ($r > $h) {
                    $t.val($h);
                    $(this).closest("tr").prevAll("tr[class^='headerrow']:first").find("td").css("background-color", "#555");
                    $(this).closest("tr").prevAll("tr[class^='headerrow']:first").find("td").css("color", "#CCC");
                }

            })

Open in new window


What gives?
is my syntax incorrect?

if ($r.val() <= $h.val() ) {

Its doing string comparison.

If we consider strings 112 is less than 13........

so you have to use parseInt method

if (parseInt($r) <= parseInt($h))
{


}
