TypedArray.prototype.fill()

The fill() method fills all the elements of a typed array from a start index to an end index with a static value. This method has the same algorithm as Array.prototype.fill(). TypedArray is one of the typed array types here.

Try it

Syntax

fill(value)
fill(value, start)
fill(value, start, end)

Parameters

value

Value to fill the typed array with.

start Optional

Start index. Defaults to 0.

end Optional

End index (not included). Defaults to this.length.

Return value

The modified array.

Description

The elements interval to fill is [start, end).

The fill() method takes up to three arguments value, start and end. The start and end arguments are optional with default values of 0 and the length of the this object.

If start is negative, it is treated as length+start where length is the length of the array. If end is negative, it is treated as length+end.

Examples

Using fill()

new Uint8Array([1, 2, 3]).fill(4);         // Uint8Array [4, 4, 4]
new Uint8Array([1, 2, 3]).fill(4, 1);      // Uint8Array [1, 4, 4]
new Uint8Array([1, 2, 3]).fill(4, 1, 2);   // Uint8Array [1, 4, 3]
new Uint8Array([1, 2, 3]).fill(4, 1, 1);   // Uint8Array [1, 2, 3]
new Uint8Array([1, 2, 3]).fill(4, -3, -2); // Uint8Array [4, 2, 3]
