Solutions/Answers:

Solution 1:

function isNumber(n) {
  return !isNaN(parseFloat(n)) && isFinite(n);
}

Solution 2:

You’ve an number of options, depending on how you want to play it:

isNaN(val)

Returns true if val is not a number, false if it is. In your case, this is probably what you need.

isFinite(val)

Returns true if val, when cast to a String, is a number and it is not equal to +/- Infinity

/^\d+$/.test(val)

Returns true if val, when cast to a String, has only digits (probably not what you need).

Solution 3:

there is a function called isNaN it return true if it’s (Not-a-number) , so u can check for a number this way

if(!isNaN(miscCharge))
{
   //do some thing if it's a number
}else{
   //do some thing if it's NOT a number
}

hope it works
