Getting Syntax error on runtime for the below script.

"SCRIPT1002: Syntax error"

function changetext(s, e){
var cmbThemes=document.getElementById('cmbThemes');
var selectedValue = cmbThemes.options[cmbThemes.selectedIndex].value;
var selectedText = cmbThemes.options[cmbThemes.selectedIndex].text;
if (selectedText() == "Glass"){
alert ("Glass");

Any help is much appreciated. !!!!

Which line?

look at this place if (selectedText() == "Glass")
you have give like a method selectedText(),remove the brackets () and see if it is working fine.

Hi Rahul,
In IF condition you have added open and close parenthesis for selectedText like this selectedText().

Remove () from the selectedText in IF condition will do the trick I believe,so giva a try....

Hope this helps you a bit.

Do you getting correct value in alert?
Hi Guys,

I managed to solve the issue. The issue was really on the clientsideeditor of Devexpress i guess.
It was not allowing more than 1 function in an event.

Thanks for your support anyways.
