JavaScript String Reference

JavaScript Strings

A JavaScript string stores a series of characters like "John Doe".

A string can be any text inside double or single quotes:

let carName1 = "Volvo XC60";
let carName2 = 'Volvo XC60';
Try it Yourself »

String indexes are zero-based: The first character is in position 0, the second in 1, and so on.

For a tutorial about Strings, read our JavaScript String Tutorial.

String Properties and Methods

Primitive values, like "John Doe", cannot have properties or methods (because they are not objects).

But with JavaScript, methods and properties are also available to primitive values, because JavaScript treats primitive values as objects when executing methods and properties.

JavaScript String Methods

Method Description
charAt() Returns the character at the specified index (position)
charCodeAt() Returns the Unicode of the character at the specified index
concat() Joins two or more strings, and returns a new joined strings
endsWith() Checks whether a string ends with specified string/characters
fromCharCode() Converts Unicode values to characters
includes() Checks whether a string contains the specified string/characters
indexOf() Returns the position of the first found occurrence of a specified value in a string
lastIndexOf() Returns the position of the last found occurrence of a specified value in a string
localeCompare() Compares two strings in the current locale
match() Searches a string for a match against a regular expression, and returns the matches
repeat() Returns a new string with a specified number of copies of an existing string
replace() Searches a string for a specified value, or a regular expression, and returns a new string where the specified values are replaced
search() Searches a string for a specified value, or regular expression, and returns the position of the match
slice() Extracts a part of a string and returns a new string
split() Splits a string into an array of substrings
startsWith() Checks whether a string begins with specified characters
substr() Extracts the characters from a string, beginning at a specified start position, and through the specified number of character
substring() Extracts the characters from a string, between two specified indices
toLocaleLowerCase() Converts a string to lowercase letters, according to the host's locale
toLocaleUpperCase() Converts a string to uppercase letters, according to the host's locale
toLowerCase() Converts a string to lowercase letters
toString() Returns the value of a String object
toUpperCase() Converts a string to uppercase letters
trim() Removes whitespace from both ends of a string
valueOf() Returns the primitive value of a String object

All string methods return a new value. They do not change the original variable.

String HTML Wrapper Methods

The HTML wrapper methods return a string wrapped inside an HTML tag.

These are not standard methods, and may not work as expected.

Method Description
anchor() Creates an anchor
big() Displays a string using a big font
blink() Displays a blinking string
bold() Displays a string in bold
fixed() Displays a string using a fixed-pitch font
fontcolor() Displays a string using a specified color
fontsize() Displays a string using a specified size
italics() Displays a string in italic
link() Displays a string as a hyperlink
small() Displays a string using a small font
strike() Displays a string with a strikethrough
sub() Displays a string as subscript text
sup() Displays a string as superscript text

JavaScript String Properties

Property Description
constructor Returns the string's constructor function
length Returns the length of a string
prototype Allows you to add properties and methods to an object
