JavaScript Array Methods


The quality of JavaScript exhibits lies in the cluster methods.


Converting Arrays to Strings

The JavaScript technique toString() changes over an exhibit to a string of (comma isolated) cluster values.

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = fruits.toString();

Result

Banana,Orange,Apple,Mango

The join() strategy likewise joins all cluster components into a string.

It carries on simply like toString(), however what's more you can determine the separator:

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange","Apple", "Mango"];
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = fruits.join(" * ");

Result

Banana * Orange * Apple * Mango

Popping and Pushing

When you work with exhibits, it is anything but difficult to expel components and include new elements.

This is the thing that popping and pushing is:

Popping things out of an exhibit, or pushing things into an array.


Popping

The pop() technique expels the last component from a cluster:

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.pop();              /Removes the last component ("Mango") from fruits
Try it Yourself »

The pop() technique restores the esteem that was "popped out":

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
var x = fruits.pop();      /the estimation of x is "Mango"
Try it Yourself »

Pushing

The push() technique adds another component to an exhibit (at the end):

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.push("Kiwi");       /  Adds another component ("Kiwi") to fruits
Try it Yourself »

The push() technique restores the new exhibit length:

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
var x = fruits.push("Kiwi");   /  the estimation of x is 5
Try it Yourself »

Shifting Elements

Shifting is identical to popping, chipping away at the main component rather than the last.

The shift() technique expels the primary cluster component and "shifts" all different components to a lower index.

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.shift();            /Removes the primary component "Banana" from natural products
Try it Yourself »

The unshift() strategy adds another component to a cluster (toward the start), and "unshifts" more established components:

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.unshift("Lemon");    /Adds another component "Lemon" to natural products
Try it Yourself »

The move() strategy restores the string that was "shifted out".

The unshift() technique restores the new exhibit length.


Changing Elements

Array components are gotten to utilizing their index number:

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits[0] = "Kiwi";        /Changes the primary component of organic products to "Kiwi"
Try it Yourself »

The length property gives a simple method to affix another component to an array:

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits[fruits.length] = "Kiwi";          /Appends "Kiwi" to fruit
Try it Yourself »

Deleting Elements

Since JavaScript clusters are objects, components can be erased by utilizing the JavaScript administrator delete:

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
erase fruits[0];           /Changes the main component in natural products to undefined
Try it Yourself »


Splicing an Array

The splice() strategy can be utilized to add new things to an exhibit:

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.splice(2, 0, "Lemon", "Kiwi");
Try it Yourself »

The first parameter (2) characterizes the position where new components ought to be added (grafted in).

The second parameter (0) characterizes how many components ought to be removed.

The rest of the parameters ("Lemon" , "Kiwi") characterize the new components to be added.


Using graft() to Remove Elements

With smart parameter setting, you can utilize graft() to expel components without leaving "holes" in the cluster:

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.splice(0, 1);        /Removes the principal component of natural products
Try it Yourself »

The first parameter (0) characterizes the position where new components ought to be added (grafted in).

The second parameter (1) characterizes how many components ought to be removed.

The rest of the parameters are precluded. No new components will be added.


Sorting an Array

The sort() technique sorts a cluster one after another in order:

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.sort();            /Sorts the components of organic products
Try it Yourself »

Reversing an Array

The reverse() technique inverts the components in an array.

You can utilize it to sort a cluster in dropping request:

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.sort();            /Sorts the components of organic products
fruits.reverse();         /Reverses the request of the elements

Numeric Sort

By default, the sort() work sorts esteems as strings.

This functions admirably for strings ("Apple" precedes "Banana").

However, if numbers are arranged as strings, "25" is greater than "100", since "2" is greater than "1".

Because of this, the sort() technique will create erroneous outcome when arranging numbers.

You can fix this by giving a compare function:

Example

var focuses = [40, 100, 1, 5, 25, 10];
points.sort(function(a, b){return a-b});
Try it Yourself »

or

Example

var focuses = [40, 100, 1, 5, 25, 10];
points.sort(function(a, b){return a>b});
Try it Yourself »

Use a similar trap to sort an exhibit descending:

Example

var focuses = [40, 100, 1, 5, 25, 10];
points.sort(function(a, b){return b-a});
Try it Yourself »

or

Example

var focuses = [40, 100, 1, 5, 25, 10];
points.sort(function(a, b){return b>a});
Try it Yourself »

The Compare Function

The reason for the contrast work is with characterize an elective sort order.

The look at capacity should restore a negative, zero, or positive esteem, contingent upon the arguments:

function(a, b){return a-b}

When the sort() work thinks about two qualities, it sends the qualities to the think about capacity, and sorts the qualities as indicated by the returned (negative, zero, positive) value.

Example:

When contrasting 40 and 100, the sort() strategy calls the think about function(40,100).

The work computes 40-100, and returns - 60 (a negative value).

The sort capacity will sort 40 as an esteem lower than 100.


Find the Highest (or Lowest) Value

How to locate the most astounding an incentive in an array?

Example

var focuses = [40, 100, 1, 5, 25, 10];
points.sort(function(a, b){return b-a});
/now points[0] contains the most astounding value
Try it Yourself »

And the lowest:

Example

var focuses = [40, 100, 1, 5, 25, 10];
points.sort(function(a, b){return a-b});
/now points[0] contains the most reduced value

Joining Arrays

The concat() strategy makes another exhibit by linking two arrays:

Example

var myGirls = ["Cecilie", "Lone"];
var myBoys = ["Emil", "Tobias","Linus"];
var myChildren = myGirls.concat(myBoys);     /Concatenates (joins) myGirls and myBoys
Try it Yourself »

The concat() strategy can take any number of exhibit arguments:

Example

var arr1 = ["Cecilie", "Lone"];
var arr2 = ["Emil", "Tobias","Linus"];
var arr3 = ["Robin", "Morgan"];
var myChildren = arr1.concat(arr2, arr3);     /Concatenates arr1 with arr2 and arr3

Slicing an Array

The slice() strategy cuts out a bit of an exhibit into another array.

This precedent cuts out a piece of an exhibit beginning from cluster component 1 ("Orange"):

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Lemon", "Apple", "Mango"];
var citrus = fruits.slice(1);
Try it Yourself »
Exhibit indexes begin with 0. [0] is the primary cluster component, [1] is the second, [2] is the third ....

This model cuts out a piece of a cluster beginning from exhibit component 3 ("Apple"):

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Lemon", "Apple", "Mango"];
var citrus = fruits.slice(3);
Try it Yourself »

The cut() technique can take two contentions like slice(1,3).

The strategy at that point chooses components from the begin contention, and up to (yet not counting) the end argument.

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Lemon", "Apple", "Mango"];
var citrus = fruits.slice(1, 3);
Try it Yourself »

If the end contention is precluded, as in the primary precedents, the cut() technique cuts out whatever remains of the array.

Example

var organic products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Lemon", "Apple", "Mango"];
var citrus = fruits.slice(2);

The valueOf() Method

The valueOf() technique is the default conduct for an exhibit. It changes over an exhibit to a crude value.

JavaScript will consequently change over a cluster to a string when a crude esteem is expected.

Because of this, all these precedents will create the equivalent result:

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = natural products;
Try it Yourself »

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = fruits.valueOf();
Try it Yourself »

Example

var natural products = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = fruits.toString();
