TypedArray.prototype.includes()

The includes() method of TypedArray instances determines whether a typed array includes a certain value among its entries, returning true or false as appropriate. This method has the same algorithm as Array.prototype.includes().

Try it

Syntax

js

includes(searchElement)
includes(searchElement, fromIndex)

Parameters

searchElement

The value to search for.

fromIndex Optional

Zero-based index at which to start searching, converted to an integer.

Return value

A boolean value which is true if the value searchElement is found within the typed array (or the part of the typed array indicated by the index fromIndex, if specified).

Description

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

Examples

Using includes()

js

const uint8 = new Uint8Array([1, 2, 3]);
uint8.includes(2); // true
uint8.includes(4); // false
uint8.includes(3, 3); // false

// NaN handling (only true for Float32 and Float64)
new Uint8Array([NaN]).includes(NaN); // false, since the NaN passed to the constructor gets converted to 0
new Float32Array([NaN]).includes(NaN); // true;
new Float64Array([NaN]).includes(NaN); // true;
