- startsWith() and endsWith() method
- search() method
- indexOf() method
- substring() method
- substr() method
- slice() method
Let’s consider a string
str = "Welcome to GEEKS FOR GEEKS!!!". Now we have to find whether the string str starts with
startword = "Welcome" and ends with
endword = "!!!".
search() method: It checks whether a particular string is contained in another string and returns the starting index of that substring.
indexOf() method: As the name suggests, it finds the starting index of a substring in the string.
substring() method: It returns a string present between start and end index.
substr() method: It is similar to substring() method but takes start index and length of substring as parameters.
slice() method: This method returns the slices of string between any two indices in a string.
Let’s take an example of text in h1 element and check whether it starts and ends with the given substring.
