if then statement conditions

I am in the middle of a free trial period and have a question about the IF THEN statement for keyword scripts. I would like my code expression to essentially say this:

If ProjectSuite.Path "contains" the string "xyz" THEN

<do something>


but when i click on the conditions ellipses in the IF THEN specify conditions box all I see available are 


does not equal

greater than

greater than or equal to

less than

less than or equal to


is there no way to have the expression use the string function "contains" or the contains operator "~". My base scripting language is javascript. this is my first posted question. let me know if I need to provide any additional information to expedite this. thanks

    An equivalent would be using "equals" with wildcard asterisks, for your example, "*xyz*".

      that did not work. i tried using the equals condition and tried both just *xyz* and "*xyz*" as the value2 entry and neither one worked. i did a log.message for the projectsuite.path and copied and pasted the entire string into the value2 entry and that does seem to work. not sure why the wildcards don't. 


      now, if i'm having another issue right after this IF THEN statement with a dropdown box selection not functioning in the playback as it was recorded should I ask a totally separate question or just append it to this current question?
