GetRolesAndPermissionsForCurrentUser - using & to check individual permissions

Jul 16, 2012 at 2:42 PM


var userPerm =$(xData.responseXML).find("Permissions").attr("Value");
        var hide = (16 & userPerm) != 16;

For some reason, hide evaluates to true in the first test when userPerm is = 9223372036854775807 so I had to add the extra test to set it back to false (I shouldn't have to do this though). This probably happens with other permission levels as well, not just full control. If they have the approver permission (16), then (16 & userPerm) != 16; should evaluate to false, right? Mine is evaluating to true;

You'll have to "and" the permissions out of the permission mask, as shown above.

I've noticed that in javascript, the full permission 0x7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF (or in decimal, 9223372036854775807) is too large to perform any bitwise operations or even simple arithmetic. It treats numbers that are too large as 9223372036854776000. Does anyone know a way around this?
