How to check if an array includes a value in JavaScript

Home » javascript » How to check if an array includes a value in JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to check if an array includes a specific value or item in JavaScript with the help of examples.

Using includes method

JavaScript has a includes() method where it returns true if a value is found in the array else it returns false.

Example:

const arr = ['sun','moon','fun'];

console.log(arr.includes('sun')); // true

console.log(arr.includes('king')); // false

Similarly, you can also use the indexOf() method where it returns the index of a specified element if it is found in the array or it returns -1 if it is not found.

Example:

const arr = ['sun','moon','fun'];

console.log(arr.indexOf('moon')); // 1

console.log(arr.indexOf('king')); // -1
