I keep getting an error when Im trying to find the value of a select2 selected element via:-

alert($("#txtCompetencesSuppliersAdd-Supplier").select2('data')[0]['supplierID']);

Open in new window

So, I thought I could test it with typeof undefined as:-

if (typeof $("#txtCompetencesSuppliersAdd-Supplier").select2('data')[0]['supplierID'] === undefined) {
    alert("Please select a supplier first");
} else {
    alert($("#txtCompetencesSuppliersAdd-Supplier").select2('data')[0]['supplierID']);
}

Open in new window

But still get the error message:-

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'supplierID')

Open in new window

The alert works fine if an option is selected, I just want to show a warning if one isnt selected.


Any suggestions?
