The pipe character is a special character in regex.  You'll probably need to escape it.  

This should work:

OK, Javascript experts, splain this to me:

If I put this:

var str="2014#Steven Patin";

I get 4, which is what I would expect; now, if I put this:

var str="2014|Steven Patin";

I get 0.


Is a pipe not allowed? I'm trying to concatenate an ID and a name together and them parse them back out in JS, and the 2nd example fails. Stumped as to why...
