    Yeah but you have never worked with them before. Have you been to their shop? Do you know if they do large format in house? Right off the bat if they don't do it in house you can expect it to take longer....

    Most of my rant has to do with the fact that these guys were sending up to 5 or 7 emails a day trolling for business that when I finally have a job for them they all of a sudden I have all this BS thrown...

    When did you approve the quote? Was it when you sent the artwork? 5 days isn't enough if they didn't know in advance that you selected them for the job because:

  • basic javascript question

    how do i make this function display properly?
    The alert do not add the numbers, instead they treat it as strings i guess and alerts "The total value is 5711" when i want it to say "The total value is 23"

    <html>
    <body>

    <script type="text/javascript">

    /* Avoiding errors using typeof operator */

    function addThree(arg1, arg2, arg3)
    {

    if ( (typeof arg1 !="number") || (typeof arg2 !="number") || (typeof arg3 !="number") )
    alert("Please input only numbers!");
    else
    alert("The total value is "+arg1+arg2+arg3);
    }

    var x=5, y=7;
    addThree(x, y , 11);


    </script>

    </body>
    </html>

    If you use + on a number, it converts it to a string I think. + is used to concatenate strings, variables, etc.

    However, adding up nothing but integers works fine. What you are doing, is adding a string, then 3 numbers, which wont work.

    HTML Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    function addThree(arg1, arg2, arg3)
    {
    	if ( (typeof arg1 !="number") || (typeof arg2 !="number") || (typeof arg3 !="number") )
    	{
    		alert("Please input only numbers!");
    	}
    	else
    	{
    		total = arg1+arg2+arg3;
    		alert("The total value is " + total);
    	}
    }
    
    addThree(1,2,3);
    
    </script>

      I see, so you would have to set the total of the arguments in a variable first and then declare that variable with the string.

      thanx
