TypedArray.prototype.find()

The find() method of TypedArray instances returns the first element in the provided typed array that satisfies the provided testing function. If no values satisfy the testing function, undefined is returned. This method has the same algorithm as Array.prototype.find().

Try it

Syntax

js
find(callbackFn)
find(callbackFn, thisArg)

Parameters

callbackFn

A function to execute for each element in the typed array. It should return a truthy value to indicate a matching element has been found, and a falsy value otherwise. The function is called with the following arguments:

element

The current element being processed in the typed array.

index

The index of the current element being processed in the typed array.

array

The typed array find() was called upon.

thisArg Optional

A value to use as this when executing callbackFn. See iterative methods.

Return value

The first element in the typed array that satisfies the provided testing function. Otherwise, undefined is returned.

Description

See Array.prototype.find() for more details. This method is not generic and can only be called on typed array instances.

Examples

Find a prime number in a typed array

The following example finds an element in the typed array that is a prime number (or returns undefined if there is no prime number).

js
function isPrime(element, index, array) {
  let start = 2;
  while (start <= Math.sqrt(element)) {
    if (element % start++ < 1) {
      return false;
    }
  }
  return element > 1;
}

const uint8 = new Uint8Array([4, 5, 8, 12]);
console.log(uint8.find(isPrime)); // 5
