Maxdiff error sintaxe

I've programmed a free format Maxdiff question with 2 questions (using the same design), but I need to program the error message when the same Item is selected for best and worst.
I've tried in the Advanced tab:

if (SSI_GetValue("FFMD1_b1")=SSI_GetValue("FFMD1_w1"));
    var strErrorMessage = "erro";
but it doesn't work.
Thank you

The operator to use for checking equality is "==".  The "=" operator is used for other purposes in JavaScript and most other programming languages.

While many lines of code ought to end with a semicolon, there are some exceptions.  Your semicolon at the end of the "strErrorMessage" line is fine, but the one at the end of the "if" line should be removed.
