map() 方法會建立一個新的陣列,其內容為原陣列的每一個元素經由回呼函式運算後所回傳的結果之集合。


var new_array =[, thisArg])


呼叫 map 方法的陣列。
選擇性的參數。執行 callback 回呼函式的 this 值。




map calls a provided callback function once for each element in an array, in order, and constructs a new array from the results. callback is invoked only for indexes of the array which have assigned values, including undefined. It is not called for missing elements of the array (that is, indexes that have never been set, which have been deleted or which have never been assigned a value).

callback is invoked with three arguments: the value of the element, the index of the element, and the Array object being traversed.

If a thisArg parameter is provided to map, it will be used as callback's this value. Otherwise, the value undefined will be used as its this value. The this value ultimately observable by callback is determined according to the usual rules for determining the this seen by a function.

map does not mutate the array on which it is called (although callback, if invoked, may do so).

The range of elements processed by map is set before the first invocation of callback. Elements which are appended to the array after the call to map begins will not be visited by callback. If existing elements of the array are changed, their value as passed to callback will be the value at the time map visits them. Elements that are deleted after the call to map begins and before being visited are not visited.

Due to the algorithm defined in the specification if the array which map was called upon is sparse, resulting array will also be sparse keeping same indices blank. 跟 Array.prototype.forEach的不同處:
  map(...)有回傳值,它會return一個把資料裡的一個個元素經過呼叫者的callBack function處理後的另一個array , 而forEach沒有回傳值,它不會return



以下的程式碼把一個數字陣列(array of numbers) 轉換成一個 新的以該數字陣列裡的一個個數做開根號計算的數字陣列.

var numbers = [1, 4, 9];
var roots =; //map會return一個新的array
// roots 現在是 [1, 2, 3]
/* numbers 還是 [1, 4, 9],這證明了map()不會去變動到numbers的值 
   大多都具有這樣函數式編程裡非常注重的特性 - immutable,不會去改變資料

Using map to reformat objects in an array

The following code takes an array of objects and creates a new array containing the newly reformatted objects.

var kvArray = [{key: 1, value: 10}, 
               {key: 2, value: 20}, 
               {key: 3, value: 30}];

var reformattedArray = { 
   var rObj = {};
   rObj[obj.key] = obj.value;
   return rObj;

// reformattedArray is now [{1: 10}, {2: 20}, {3: 30}], 

// kvArray is still: 
// [{key: 1, value: 10}, 
//  {key: 2, value: 20}, 
//  {key: 3, value: 30}]

Mapping an array of numbers using a function containing an argument

The following code shows how map works when a function requiring one argument is used with it. The argument will automatically be assigned to each element of the array as map loops through the original array.

var numbers = [1, 4, 9];
var doubles = {
  return num * 2;

// doubles is now [2, 8, 18]
// numbers is still [1, 4, 9]

Using map generically

This example shows how to use map on a String to get an array of bytes in the ASCII encoding representing the character values:

var map =;
var a ='Hello World', function(x) { 
  return x.charCodeAt(0); 
// a now equals [72, 101, 108, 108, 111, 32, 87, 111, 114, 108, 100]

Using map generically querySelectorAll

This example shows how to iterate through a collection of objects collected by querySelectorAll. In this case we get all selected options on the screen and printed on the console:

var elems = document.querySelectorAll('select option:checked');
var values =, function(obj) {
  return obj.value;

Using map to reverse a string

var str = '12345';, function(x) {
  return x;

// Output: '54321'
// Bonus: use '===' to test if original string was a palindrome

Tricky use case

(inspired by this blog post)

It is common to use the callback with one argument (the element being traversed). Certain functions are also commonly used with one argument, even though they take additional optional arguments. These habits may lead to confusing behaviors.

// Consider:
['1', '2', '3'].map(parseInt);
// While one could expect [1, 2, 3]
// The actual result is [1, NaN, NaN]

// parseInt is often used with one argument, but takes two.
// The first is an expression and the second is the radix.
// To the callback function, passes 3 arguments: 
// the element, the index, the array
// The third argument is ignored by parseInt, but not the second one,
// hence the possible confusion. See the blog post for more details

function returnInt(element) {
  return parseInt(element, 10);

['1', '2', '3'].map(returnInt); // [1, 2, 3]
// Actual result is an array of numbers (as expected)

// A simpler way to achieve the above, while avoiding the "gotcha":
['1', '2', '3'].map(Number); // [1, 2, 3]


map was added to the ECMA-262 standard in the 5th edition; as such it may not be present in all implementations of the standard. You can work around this by inserting the following code at the beginning of your scripts, allowing use of map in implementations which do not natively support it. This algorithm is exactly the one specified in ECMA-262, 5th edition, assuming Object, TypeError, and Array have their original values and that evaluates to the original value of

// Production steps of ECMA-262, Edition 5,
// Reference:
if (! { = function(callback/*, thisArg*/) {

    var T, A, k;

    if (this == null) {
      throw new TypeError('this is null or not defined');

    // 1. Let O be the result of calling ToObject passing the |this| 
    //    value as the argument.
    var O = Object(this);

    // 2. Let lenValue be the result of calling the Get internal 
    //    method of O with the argument "length".
    // 3. Let len be ToUint32(lenValue).
    var len = O.length >>> 0;

    // 4. If IsCallable(callback) is false, throw a TypeError exception.
    // See:
    if (typeof callback !== 'function') {
      throw new TypeError(callback + ' is not a function');

    // 5. If thisArg was supplied, let T be thisArg; else let T be undefined.
    if (arguments.length > 1) {
      T = arguments[1];

    // 6. Let A be a new array created as if by the expression new Array(len) 
    //    where Array is the standard built-in constructor with that name and 
    //    len is the value of len.
    A = new Array(len);

    // 7. Let k be 0
    k = 0;

    // 8. Repeat, while k < len
    while (k < len) {

      var kValue, mappedValue;

      // a. Let Pk be ToString(k).
      //   This is implicit for LHS operands of the in operator
      // b. Let kPresent be the result of calling the HasProperty internal 
      //    method of O with argument Pk.
      //   This step can be combined with c
      // c. If kPresent is true, then
      if (k in O) {

        // i. Let kValue be the result of calling the Get internal 
        //    method of O with argument Pk.
        kValue = O[k];

        // ii. Let mappedValue be the result of calling the Call internal 
        //     method of callback with T as the this value and argument 
        //     list containing kValue, k, and O.
        mappedValue =, kValue, k, O);

        // iii. Call the DefineOwnProperty internal method of A with arguments
        // Pk, Property Descriptor
        // { Value: mappedValue,
        //   Writable: true,
        //   Enumerable: true,
        //   Configurable: true },
        // and false.

        // In browsers that support Object.defineProperty, use the following:
        // Object.defineProperty(A, k, {
        //   value: mappedValue,
        //   writable: true,
        //   enumerable: true,
        //   configurable: true
        // });

        // For best browser support, use the following:
        A[k] = mappedValue;
      // d. Increase k by 1.

    // 9. return A
    return A;
