TypeError: Cannot read property "length" of undefined.

I keep getting the error: TypeError: Cannot read property "length" of undefined.

It seems to happen at the line  searchparams: JSON.stringify(jsonObj)

Can anyone help me find out why?

I would think it says that $('#inpAdvSearchCaseId').val() is undefined.

Maybe you meant $('#inpAdvSearchCaseId').value ?

Something more robust would probably be

if (typeof  $('#inpAdvSearchCaseId').value != "undefined") {...

use your dev tools to figure out exactly which element is throwing the error. i suspect you mistyped one of the selectors.

or, post a link to the page so someone else can find the exact cause of the error.

if you do what fibo is suggesting you'll potentially just mask the error and submit an incomplete form

Both using the correct functions and the correct variable names are needed.
B-) But using incorrect function names will surely mask any other error

it looks like onaled777 is using jQuery to select elements. In the case of jQuery, the function is val()

@ onaled777 ,

If you're going to use id's and plain vanilla js, then you should probably get rid of the jQuery, in which case the correct property will be 'value' per fibo.

The entire code block is poorly written. If you provide a link to the page, you will probably get better advise.

Thanks for your input all.  Yes I am in the process of getting more familiar with the debugging tools and was able to find the error the second time around.
