    how do I get a form.value inside var using javascript


    var all_files = new Array();
    var all_files_values = new Aray();
    all_files = form.hidden_dev_files.value; (grabbed from Perl code)

    for (var i=0;i<all_files.lenght;i++){
    var pattern = /form.SEARCH.value/g; :mad:
    if(pattern.test(all_files)) {
    body = body + '<OPTION ';
    body = body + 'value=\"' + all_files + '\">' + all_files + '</OPTIONS>\";

    I cannot get the var pattern form.SEARCH.value into the /RegExp/

    I have tried

    srch = form.SEARCH.value and then using
    var pattern = /srch/g;


    var pattern = /eval(form.SEARCH.value)/g;

    I cannot get the form value inside the regexp .
    I know it is set, becuase I fall into this portion if form.SEARCH.value != ''

    Thank you for your help.
