forEach(callback)
forEach(callback, thisArg)

Parameters

A function to execute on each element of someNodeList. It accepts 3 parameters:

currentValue

currentIndex Optional

The index of the currentValue being processed in someNodeList.

listObj Optional

The someNodeList that forEach() is being applied to.

thisArg Optional

Return value

Example

const node = document.createElement("div");
const kid1 = document.createElement("p");
const kid2 = document.createTextNode("hey");
const kid3 = document.createElement("span");

node.appendChild(kid1);
node.appendChild(kid2);
node.appendChild(kid3);

const list = node.childNodes;

list.forEach(
  function (currentValue, currentIndex, listObj) {
    console.log(`${currentValue}, ${currentIndex}, ${this}`);
  },
  'myThisArg'
);

The above code results in the following:

[object HTMLParagraphElement], 0, myThisArg
[object Text], 1, myThisArg
[object HTMLSpanElement], 2, myThisArg
