JavaScript | Float64Array.from() Method

  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2020

The Float64Array represents an array of 64-bit floating-point numbers in the platform byte order. By default, the contents of Float64Array are initialized with 0.

Float64Array.from() method is used to create a new Float64Array from an array-like or iterable object. So when you want to convert an arrayLike or iterable object to Float64Array then you can use this function by passing the object as a parameter to this function along with map function and value used for map function if needed.


Float64Array.from( source, mapFn, thisArg )

parameters: This method accept three parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • source: This parameter holds an array-like or iterable object which is used to convert into Float64Array object.
  • mapFn: This parameter is optional which holds the Map function to call on every element of the Float64Array array.
  • thisArg: This parameter is optional which holds the value to use as this when executing mapFn.

Return Value: This method returns a new Float64Array instance.

Below examples illustrate the working of Float64Array.from() function in JavaScript:

Example 1:

// Create a Float64Array from a string like structure
var  array = Float64Array.from('12345324354342354245342');
// Print the result


1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 3, 2, 4, 3, 5, 4, 3, 4, 2, 3, 5, 4, 2, 4, 5, 3, 4, 2

Example 2:

// Create a Float64Array from an array by
// multiplying 3999.99 to each number
// using function
var  array = Float64Array.from(
    [432.3343, 13243.3243123, 1324232132.24551],
    z => z  * 3999.99
// Print the result
