MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

toLowerCase Redirect 1


The toLowerCase() method returns the calling string value converted to lowercase.




The toLowerCase method returns the value of the string converted to lowercase. toLowerCase does not affect the value of the string str itself.


Example: Using toLowerCase

console.log( "ALPHABET".toLowerCase() ); // "alphabet"
