hello
well i put in a javascript code and it looked quite right at first but when i try to use it it fails and if you can see i even tried putting these two in different javascript files but still it only read only one of them.

JavaScript
function setValue(){

I have run this code in IE8 and it runs fine, popping up the message 'yes this game can run'. What's the problem with it exactly? You need to elaborate more by telling us where the function itself is being called, and showing how your form fields are defined.

i am sorry i should have clearly mentioned my problem you see i have added all ati graphics in gears of war array and nvidia graphics in prince of persia array and i want that when i select prince of persia and if i select an nvidi graphic card then it should print out this will run and if i select gears of war and select an ATI graphic card it should say it will run but if i select prince of persia and an ati graphic card it should say this will not run well now the problem is that if i select gears of war and select an ati graphic card it says this can run but when i select prince of persia and an nvidia graphic card it says this will not run please help me with that.

Just a quick comment on the logic you've used - if something should happen if all of the conditions are met, then it shouldn't happen if a single one of those conditions is not met.

I.e - It's common practise to set a variable first then alter it if a condition isn't met - it's much nicer to read than all those nested for/if loops.

E.g
C++
// returns true if all conditions are met
// false otherwise
function checkConditions()
{
	var isOk = true;
	var a=1, b=1, w=2, x=2, y=3, z=4;
	
	if (a != b)
		isOk = false;
		
	if (w != x)
		isOk = false;
		
	if (y != z)
		isOk = false;
	
	return isOk;
}

// returns true if all conditions are met
// false otherwise
// modified to exit as soon as a condition fails - this may save much or little time, it depends on the complexity of the conditions
function checkConditions()
{
//	var isOk = true;
	var a=1, b=1, w=2, x=2, y=3, z=4;
	
	if (a != b)
		return false;	//isOk = false;
		
	if (w != x)
		return false;	//isOk = false;
		
	if (y != z)
		return false;	//isOk = false;
	
	return true;
}

here is how i myself fixed it

C#
