How do I determine if the variable is undefined or null? My code is as follows:

var EmpName = $("div#esd-names div#name").attr('class');

if(EmpName == 'undefined'){ 



<div id="esd-names">

<div id="name">

</div> </div>

But if I do this, the JavaScript interpreter halts the execution.

To determine if the variable is 'undefined' or 'null' you can use the qualities of the abstract equality operator to do this:

if (variable == null){ 

// your code here. 


The above code will catch both null and undefined because null == undefined is always true.
