JavaScript Array entries() Method Examples

Example 1: Iterating Array Entries in JavaScript

The code initializes an array languages and creates an iterator g using the entries() method. It then iterates over each key/value pair in the iterator using a for...of loop, logging each pair along with the string “geeks” to the console.


let languages = ["HTML", "CSS", "JavaScript", "ReactJS"];
let g = languages.entries();
for (x of g) {


geeks [ 0, 'HTML' ]
geeks [ 1, 'CSS' ]
geeks [ 2, 'JavaScript' ]
geeks [ 3, 'ReactJS' ]

Example 2: Iterating Over Array Entries in JavaScript

The code initializes an array fruits_names containing fruit names. It then creates an iterator fruits_array_iterator using the entries() method. Two calls to next().value are made on the iterator, logging the key/value pairs (index and corresponding element) to the console.


let fruits_names = ['apple', 'banana', 'mango'];
let fruits_array_iterator = fruits_names.entries();


[ 0, 'apple' ]
[ 1, 'banana' ]
