3 ways to loop an array in JavaScript | Quick ways


In this article we will learn about 3 quick ways to loop through an array in JavaScript.

JavaScript loops are use to run a block of code repeatedly until a certain condition is met. It is also use to iterate through items in an array.

In JavaScript there are three easy ways to loop over an array: forEach loop, for of loop and simple for loop.

Lets us see with examples different types of JavaScript loop

forEach() loop in an array in javascript

Theย forEach()ย method performs a provided function once for each elements in an array.

Let see how to forEach() loop over an array in JavaScript with an example.

const fruits = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
fruits.forEach(element => console.log(element))
// OUTPUT
// Banana
// Orange
// Apple
// Mango

Here we are looping through each element in fruits array using forEach() and element is the current element in the array that has being processed.

for ..of loop in an array in JavaScript

The for ..of statement performs a loop iteration over iterable objects like String, Array, or array-like objects.

const array1 = ['a', 'b', 'c'];

for (const element of array1) {
  console.log(element);
}

// expected output: "a"
// expected output: "b"
// expected output: "c"

for loop in JavaScript

The for loop is the most used way of looping through an array in JavaScript before foreach and for of were introduced in ES5 and ES6.

Syntax:

for (statement 1; statement 2; statement 3) {
  // code block to be executed
}

Here:

statement 1 : Is executed only one time before execution of the code block.

statement 2 : It define the condition of the loop for the execution of the code block.

statement 3 : It is executed at the end, after the code block is executed.

Example:

const fruits = ["Banana", "Orange", "Apple", "Mango"];
for (let i = 0; i < fruits.length; i++) {
  console.log(fruits[i])
}

//OUTPUT
// Banana
// Orange
// Apple
// Mango

Here the statement 2 (i < fruits.length) is the condition and the loop will run till it becomes equal to array length. Once the condition is met, the loop stops.

Well, these are the three easy and quick ways to loop through an array in JavaScript.
