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


The entries() method returns a new Array Iterator object that contains the key/value pairs for each index in the array.



Return value

A new Array Iterator object.


Iteration using for...of loop

var arr = new Uint8Array([10, 20, 30, 40, 50]);
var eArray = arr.entries();
// your browser must support for..of loop
// and let-scoped variables in for loops
for (let n of eArray) {

Alternative iteration

var arr = new Uint8Array([10, 20, 30, 40, 50]);
var eArr = arr.entries();
console.log(; // [0, 10]
console.log(; // [1, 20]
console.log(; // [2, 30]
console.log(; // [3, 40]
console.log(; // [4, 50]
