Definition and Usage

The find() method returns the value of the first element in an array that pass a test (provided as a function).

The find() method executes the function once for each element present in the array:

  • If it finds an array element where the function returns a true value, find() returns the value of that array element (and does not check the remaining values)
  • Otherwise it returns undefined

Note: find() does not execute the function for empty arrays.

Note: find() does not change the original array.
