Nintex Forms - use substring in Javascript

Hello,

 

I am trying to extract part of the URL from a Hyperlink control.  In the Customer JavaScript - function, I am trying to use substring to extract the URL.  Here is the sample JaveScript:

 

function showText()  {   
 
var display = NWF$("#"+txtHyperLink);   

 

display = display.substring(0, 25);

 

alert(display.val());   
 
}

 

When I use a button control to execute the   showText function, the alert does not display on the form.  If I remove the display.substring from the function, the alert will display.   Can I not use Substring in the JavaScript function?   If not, is there another way to extract the URL from the Hyperlink control?  Or can I use the fn-substring inline function in JavaScript?
