JS: Array.prototype.findIndex

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

New in ES2015.

Return the first found index of a value of array myArray where the function f returns true.

Return undefined if not found.

If thisArg is given, it will be used as this value of f. If it is not given, undefined is used.

[see JS: “this” Binding]

f must be a function. The function should return true or false.

The function f is passed 3 args: • current_elementcurrent_indexmyArray.

const isEven = (x => ( x % 2 === 0 ? true : false ) )

console.log( [7,3,4,2].findIndex (isEven) ); // 2

// if not found, return undefined
console.log( [1,3,5].find (isEven) ); // undefined
