Javascript: How to check if a string is empty?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I know this is really basic, but I am new to javascript and can’t find an answer anywhere.

How can I check if a string is empty?

How to solve:

I check length.

if (str.length == 0) {
}

###

If you want to know if it’s an empty string use === instead of ==.

if(variable === "") {
}

This is because === will only return true if the values on both sides are of the same type, in this case a string.

for example:
(false == “”) will return true, and (false === “”) will return false.

###

This should work:

if (variable === "") {

}

###

But for a better check:

if(str === null || str === '')
{
    //enter code here
}

###

if (value == "") {
  // it is empty
}
