splice() method changes the content of an array, adding new elements while removing old elements.
array.splice(index, howMany, [element1][, ..., elementN]);
index − Index at which to start changing the array.
howMany − An integer indicating the number of old array elements to remove. If howMany is 0, no elements are removed.
element1, ..., elementN − The elements to add to the array. If you don't specify any elements, splice simply removes the elements from the array.
Returns the extracted array based on the passed parameters.
var arr = ["orange", "mango", "banana", "sugar", "tea"]; var removed = arr.splice(2, 0, "water"); console.log("After adding 1: " + arr ); console.log("removed is: " + removed); removed = arr.splice(3, 1); console.log("After removing 1: " + arr ); console.log("removed is: " + removed);
Its output is as follows −
After adding 1: orange,mango,water,banana,sugar,tea removed is: After removing 1: orange,mango,water,sugar,tea removed is: banana
