Check if a value exists in an array using Javascript.

In this article, I will show you the 2 ways for checking if a value exists in an array.

1. Using includes()

This method returns true if the array includes the value, else it returns false.

let array = ["a", "b", "c", "d"];
console.log(array.includes("b")); // true
console.log(array.includes("e")); // false
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2. Using indexOf()

This methods returns the index of the value if it exists, else it returns -1.

let array = ["a", "b", "c", "d"];
console.log(array.indexOf("b")); // 1
console.log(array.indexOf("e")); // -1
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
