Comportamiento extraño de Javascript - objeto js

I want to code some sort of state machine with different transitions. But something strange happens, when I want to select an item.

var transitions = {
    "on": {

The last two lines are very interresting - the same index, first hardcoded and the second stored within a variable. Why does the first return the right result (false) and the other undefined?

console.log(attr);                             // on
console.log(transitions[attr]);                // Object { false="true, true="false" }
console.log(current_val);                      // "true"
console.log(typeof current_val);               // string
console.log(transitions[attr]["true"]);        // false
console.log(transitions[attr][current_val]);   // undefined

info: I use FF 14.0.1

If console.log(current_val); produce "true" entonces parece current_val debe configurarse para '"true"', Desde console.log should not print quotes. -

Funciona bien aquí. Can you reproduce your problem in a fiddle? -

Not sure, but using reserved words like that is asking for trouble ;) Still a good question though -

@nneonneo Smart. You should submit that as an answer. -

interesting sidenote (regarding chrome): running the code in an html page (or jsFiddle) gives the desired output, running it completely in the console gives the described output (e.g. undefined para la última fila) -

Tenga en cuenta que console.log(current_val); salidas "true" to the console. Since console.log doesn't print quotes, it must be the case that current_val contiene '"true"', que no es lo mismo que "true".

Its because of the fact that true is not evaluated to string in the last statement.

why not? typeof returns string?! ... How can I cast it to one? console.log(transitions[attr][String(current_val)]); no funciona. - Yaya
