How to create two dimensional array in JavaScript?

The two-dimensional array is a collection of items which share a common name and they are organized as a matrix in the form of rows and columns. The two-dimensional array is an array of arrays, so we create an array of one-dimensional array objects.

The following program shows how to create an 2D array :
Example-1:

filter_none

close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

<script>
  
// Create one dimensional array
    var gfg = new Array(2);
  
document.write("Creating 2D array <br>");
  
// Loop to create 2D array using 1D array
for (var i = 0; i < gfg.length; i++) {
    gfg[i] = new Array(2);
}
  
var h = 0;
  
// Loop to initilize 2D array elements.
for (var i = 0; i < 2; i++) {
    for (var j = 0; j < 2; j++) {
        gfg[i][j] = h++;
    }
}
  
// Loop to display the elements of 2D array. 
for (var i = 0; i < 2; i++) {
    for (var j = 0; j < 2; j++) {
        document.write(gfg[i][j] + " ");
    }
    document.write("<br>");
</script>

    for (var j = 0; j < 3; j++) {
  
        gfg[i][j] = s[h++];
    }
}
  
// Loop to display the elements of 2D array.
for (var i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
    for (var j = 0; j < 3; j++)
