Check if a string contains an email address?

Debuggex Example

JsFiddle Example

function checkIfEmailInString(text) { 
    var re = /(([^<>()[\]\\.,;:\[email protected]\"]+(\.[^<>()[\]\\.,;:\[email protected]\"]+)*)|(\".+\"))@((\[[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\])|(([a-zA-Z\-0-9]+\.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,}))/;
    return re.test(text);

You can use this:

var StrObj = "whatever, this is my email [email protected] other text";
var emailsArray = StrObj.match(/([a-zA-Z0-9._-][email protected][a-zA-Z0-9._-]+\.[a-zA-Z0-9._-]+)/gi);
if (emailsArray != null && emailsArray.length) {
    //has email

This also lets you get the email address from the array, if you need it.
