new Array( )
new Array(element0, element1, ..., elementn)
The desired number of elements in the array. The returned array has
its length field set to
- element0, ... elementn
An argument list of two or more arbitrary values. When the
Array( ) constructor is invoked with these
arguments, the newly created array is initialized with the specified
argument values as its elements and its length
field set to the number of arguments.
The newly created and initialized array. When Array(
) is invoked with no arguments, the returned array is empty
and has a length field of 0. When invoked with a
single numeric argument, the constructor returns an array with the
specified number of undefined elements. When invoked with any other
arguments, the constructor initializes the array with the values
specified by the arguments. When the Array( )
constructor is called as a function, without the
new operator, it behaves exactly as it does when
called with the new operator.
When a single integer size argument is
passed to the Array( ) constructor, a
RangeError exception is thrown if
size is negative or is larger than
an array literal syntax. You may also create and initialize an array
by placing a comma-separated list of expressions within square
brackets. The values of these expressions become the elements of the
array. For example:
var a = [1, true, 'abc'];
var b = [a, a*2, f(x)];
A read/write integer specifying the number of elements in the array
or, when the array does not have contiguous elements, a number one
larger than the index of the last element in the array. Changing the
value of this property truncates or extends the array.
- concat( )
Concatenates elements to an array.
- join( )
Converts all array elements to strings and concatenate them.
- pop( )
Removes an item from the end of an array.
- push( )
Pushes an item onto the end of an array.
- reverse( )
Reverses, in place, the order of the elements of an array.
- shift( )
Shifts an element off the beginning of an array.
- slice( )
Returns a subarray slice of an array.
- sort( )
Sorts, in place, the elements of an array.
- splice( )
Inserts, deletes, or replaces array elements.
- toLocaleString( )
Converts an array to a localized string.
- toString( )
Converts an array to a string.
- unshift( )
Inserts elements at the beginning of an array.
