    Default JavaScript code to convert phone number phrase to actual phone number

    I'm required to
    - ask the user for the phone number phrase using a standard HTML form and followed by a
    - java script function to convert the number phrase into actual number
    - the final output must show up without using html input controls


    Been trying to accomplish this using if else statements within the <script> tag but did not succeed.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Moved to other languages.

    JavaScript is not Java.

    Thanks. Here's what I have so far:

    <!DOCTYPE html>



    <html>

    <head>

    <meta charset="utf-8" />

    <title>JavaScript</title>





    </head>

    <body>

    <form>

    Enter Phone Number: <input type="text" number="phone number"><br>


    </form>

    <script type="text/javascript">



    public class telephone {

    public static int getNumber(char uppercaseLetter)

    if (letter=='G' || letter=='H' || letter== 'I')
    {
    return 4;
    }
    else if (letter=='M' || letter=='N' || letter== 'O')
    {
    return 6;
    }
    else if (letter=='T' || letter=='U' || letter== 'V')
    {
    return 8;
    }
    else if (letter=='J' || letter=='K' || letter== 'L')
    {
    return 5;
    }
    public static void main (String[] args) {
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.print("Enter alphanumeric phone number to convert to all numbers.");

    String phoneNumber = input.nextLine();
    System.out.println(getNumber(letter.charAt(0)));

    }
    }
    </script>
    </body>

    </html>

    Please see Announcements - Other Programming Languages for how to use the code tags and other useful information.

    ...
    <script type="text/javascript">
    ...
    public static void main (String[] args) {
    ....
    I would recommend reading the basics of javascript - in the above code you have mixed java and javascript, which are two separate beasts entirely. Your assignment looks to want to focus your attention on using javascript

    Hi,

    I think you are quiet confused with java and JavaScript. Java and JavaScript is entirely different. K Choose your language and focus clearly as well learn the difference of both.

    Thanks,
