How to split words into | (pipe sign)

Hi there

Hope all is ok.

I have this code:

    function fun_get() {
        var ele = jQuery('input[name=CheckboxStatus]:checked').map(function () {
            return this.value;
        }).get().join()
      
        return ele;
    }

Open in new window


and I have a checkbox when I select for example the checkbox "blue" and running the function above I get:

blue

HOWEVER, if I check 2 or more checkboxes I get

blue,red,green

can someone please help me with the JS code, What I want is if I select 1 option it should be for example (as seen below):

blue

If I select more then 1 it should be

blue|red|green

as you can see it places a pipe sign IF there are more then 1 selected, also as you can see there is NOT a pipe sign at the end of the string.

hope someone can come back to me.

thanks

or I can use this, but it still creates the same problem

    function getCheckBoxValues(checkboxName) {
        var checkboxVals = [];
        $('input:checkbox[name=CheckboxStatus]:checked').each(function (index) {
            checkboxVals.push($(this).val());            
        })          
    }

the separation is happening inside the JQuery script with the Comma

not with in the code you provided.

search through the jQuery script (particulalrly the join function)  and find the Comma separator and change the  "," to a "|" and you'll be good to go  :)

never fear
duplicate the join function in the Jquery and call it Join2 and use the join2 function where you need it.

you are correct, all I had to do was


join("|")
