    Number.isFinite()

    This is a new technology, part of the ECMAScript 2015 (ES6) standard .
    This technology's specification has been finalized, but check the compatibility table for usage and implementation status in various browsers.

    The Number.isFinite() method determines whether the passed value is a finite number.

    Syntax

    Number.isFinite(value)

    Parameters

    value
    The value to be tested for finiteness.

    Description

    In comparison to the global isFinite() function, this method doesn't forcibly convert the parameter to a number. This means only values of the type number, that are also finite, return true.

    Examples

    Number.isFinite(Infinity);  // false
    Number.isFinite(NaN);       // false
    Number.isFinite(-Infinity); // false
    
    Number.isFinite(0);         // true
    Number.isFinite(2e64);      // true
    
    Number.isFinite('0');       // false, would've been true with
                                // global isFinite('0')
    

    Polyfill

    Number.isFinite = Number.isFinite || function(value) {
        return typeof value === "number" && isFinite(value);
    }
