Node.js | util.types.isTypedArray() Method
  • Last Updated : 23 Jan, 2020

The util.types.isTypedArray() method is an inbuilt application programming interface of util module which is primarily designed to support the needs of Node.js own internal APIs.

The util.types.isTypedArray() method is used to determine whether the value is a built-in TypedArray instance.

Syntax:

util.types.isTypedArray( value )

Parameter: This method accepts a single parameters value which holds any valid JavaScript data types like Boolean, Null, Number, Object, etc.

Return value: It returns a Boolean value i.e. returns true if value is a built-in TypedArray instance otherwise it returns false.



Below examples illustrate the use of util.types.isTypedArray() method in Node.js:

Example 1:




// Node.js program to demonstrate the 
// util.types.isTypedArray() method 
  
// Using require to access util module 
const util = require('util');
  
// Using util.types.isTypedArray() method
console.log(util.types.isTypedArray(new ArrayBuffer()));
  
// Using util.types.isTypedArray() method
console.log(util.types.isTypedArray(new Uint8Array()));
  
// Using util.types.isTypedArray() method
console.log(util.types.isTypedArray(new Float64Array()));

Output:

false
true
true

Example 2:




// Node.js program to demonstrate the 
// util.types.isTypedArray() method 
  
// Using require to access util module 
const util = require('util');
  
// Using util.types.isTypedArray() method
console.log(util.types.isTypedArray([1, 5, 8, 18]));
  
// Using util.types.isTypedArray() method
console.log(util.types.isTypedArray(new Int8Array(8)));

Output:

false
true

Note: The above program will compile and run by using the node index.js command.
