Lodash | _.castArray() Method
  • Last Updated : 08 May, 2020

The _.castArray() method is used to cast value into an array if it is not an array.

Syntax:

_.castArray( value )

Parameters: This method accepts single parameter as mentioned above and described below:

  • value: This parameter holds the value that need to be inspect.

Return Value: It returns an array with the including value passed in the _.castArray().

Example 1: This example using integer value as a parameter.






const _ = require('lodash');
  
let x = 10;
  
let arr = _.castArray(x);
  
console.log("\n\nThe value returned to by _castArray(x) is", arr);

Here, const _ = require('lodash') is used to import the lodash library into the file.

Output:

Example 2: This example using String, null, and undefined as a parameter.




const _ = require('lodash');
  
let x = _.castArray('abc');
  
console.log('\n With String ', x );
   
let y = _.castArray(null);
  
console.log('\n With null ', y );
   
let z = _.castArray(undefined);
  
console.log('\n With undefined ', z);

Output:

Example 3: With no parameter, object, and function.




const _ = require('lodash');
  
let x = _.castArray();
  
console.log("\n With no parameter ", x);
  
let y = _.castArray({"name":"lodash",
         "work":"I'm make js more" });
  
console.log("\n With object ", y);
  
let z = _.castArray(function hello() {
    console.log("hello");
});
  
console.log("\n with function ", z);

Output:

Eample 4: This example using multiple parameters, it will take only the first parameter and with an array, it will just return the same array.




const _ = require('lodash');
  
let x = _.castArray(1, 2, "hello");
  
console.log('\n With multiple paramter ', x);
  
let y = _.castArray([1, 2, 3]);
  
console.log('\n With array ', y);

Output:

Note: This will not work in normal JavaScript because it requires the library lodash to be installed.
