What is the difference between custom and built-in functions in JavaScript?

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The custom functions in JavaScript are user-defined functions. JavaScript allows us to write our own functions. The following is the syntax −

Syntax

<script>
   <!--
      function functionname(parameter-list)
      {
         statements
      }
   //-->
</script>

Bult-in functions are functions already provided by JavaScript library, for example, the following are string functions −

S. No
Method & Description
1
charAt()
Returns the character at the specified index.
2
charCodeAt()
Returns a number indicating the Unicode value of the character at the given index.
3
concat()
Combines the text of two strings and returns a new string.
4
indexOf()
Returns the index within the calling String object of the first occurrence of the specified value, or -1 if not found.
