概述

startsWith()方法用来判断当前字符串是否是以另外一个给定的子字符串“开头”的,根据判断结果返回 truefalse

语法

str.startsWith(searchString [, position]);

参数

searchString
要搜索的子字符串。
position
str 中搜索 searchString 的开始位置,默认值为 0,也就是真正的字符串开头处。

示例

var str = "To be, or not to be, that is the question.";

alert(str.startsWith("To be"));         // true
alert(str.startsWith("not to be"));     // false
alert(str.startsWith("not to be", 10)); // true

if (!String.prototype.startsWith) {

    'use strict'; // needed to support `apply`/`call` with `undefined`/`null`
    var defineProperty = (function() {
      // IE 8 only supports `Object.defineProperty` on DOM elements
      try {
        var object = {};
        var $defineProperty = Object.defineProperty;
        var result = $defineProperty(object, object, object) && $defineProperty;
      } catch(error) {}
      return result;
    }());
    var toString = {}.toString;
    var startsWith = function(search) {
      if (this == null) {
        throw TypeError();
      }
      var string = String(this);
      if (search && toString.call(search) == '[object RegExp]') {
        throw TypeError();
      }
      var stringLength = string.length;
      var searchString = String(search);
      var searchLength = searchString.length;
      var position = arguments.length > 1 ? arguments[1] : undefined;
      // `ToInteger`
      var pos = position ? Number(position) : 0;
      if (pos != pos) { // better `isNaN`
        pos = 0;
      }
      var start = Math.min(Math.max(pos, 0), stringLength);
      // Avoid the `indexOf` call if no match is possible
      if (searchLength + start > stringLength) {
        return false;
      }
      var index = -1;
      while (++index < searchLength) {
        if (string.charCodeAt(start + index) != searchString.charCodeAt(index)) {
          return false;
        }
      }
      return true;
    };
    if (defineProperty) {
      defineProperty(String.prototype, 'startsWith', {
        'value': startsWith,
        'configurable': true,
        'writable': true
      });
    } else {
      String.prototype.startsWith = startsWith;
    }
  }());
}

请注意,尽管MSDN文档有清晰地指示这个方法 (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt146831(v=vs.94).aspx) 不支持Internet Explorer,,但是这个方法似乎会在很久之前的Internet Explorer 8下生效。
