My (Javascript) frontend needs to decide whether the user can send an Ardor/Ignis asset in his account. My code checked for:

quantityQNT >= amount_to_send

But I realise that this doesn't work if the user has the asset offered on the asset exchange.

So just checking for unconfirmedQuantityQNT wouldnt be clever either, as it might want to send an asset which ownership never confirms (phasing or fork).

Would it be safe to check this way:

min(quantityQNT,unconfirmedQuantity) >= amount_to_send

Thanks for your opinions

In most cases you should use the unconfirmedBalanceNQT. Think about it as spendable balance i.e. your total balance minus coins/asset shares/currency units locked for various reasons such unfulfilled coin exchange orders.
