    Hello ! I have a menu and need my expression to check if its value is, for example, 1 OR 4 OR 7.
    Unfortunately, none of the methods I’ve seen online work, which are :
    if(menu == 1|| 4 || 7)


    var array = [1,4,7];

    None of these give me a true result when menu is equal to one of them, all I have are false returns. Do you have any ideas?

    Sincerely, Lucas

    The syntax for multiple OR conditions would need to be something like:

    if(menu==1 || menu==4 || menu==7)

    Your idea of using includes() is spot on. But you might have to add .value to your variable if it’s pointing to a control like a menu. So it might looks something like:

    let arr = [1,4,7];
