How to get the nth character of a string in JavaScript

In this tutorial, we will learn how to get the nth character of a string in JavaScript.

In JavaScript, strings are the sequence of characters, where the index of the first character is 0, the second character is 1, third character is 3 etc.

Getting the nth character

To access the nth character of a string, we can use the built-in charAt() method in JavaScript.

The charAt() method accepts the character index as an argument and return its value in the string.

Here is an example, that gets the first character D from the following string:

const place = "Denmark";
const firstCharacter = place.charAt(0);

console.log(firstCharacter);

Output:

"D"

We can access the second and thrid characters of a string like this:

const secondCharacter = country.charAt(1); // e

const thirdCharacter = country.charAt(2); // n

Similarly, we can also use the square brackets notation [] in JavaScript.

const place = "Denmark";

const firstCharacter = place[0];
