Convert a Set to an Array in JavaScript

Converting a Set to an Array is convenient for using array methods that aren't on sets, like filter() or reduce() . The most concise way to convert a Set to an array is using the spread operator as follows.

You Usually Don't Need to Convert a Set to an Array

You may convert sets to arrays for helpers like filter() and map() . But keep in mind that for/of , which we recommend for iterating over an array , also works with sets.

Alternative: Use Array.from()

The spread operator has pretty good browser compability . However, if you need to support older browsers, you may consider using the Array.from() function , which is easier to polyfill.

JavaScript Methods and this Keyword

  • Javascript Object.preventExtensions()

In JavaScript, there are two kinds of object properties:

  • Data properties
  • Accessor properties

Data Property

Here's an example of data property that we have been using in the previous tutorials.

Accessor Property

In JavaScript, accessor properties are methods that get or set the value of an object. For that, we use these two keywords:

  • get - to define a getter method to get the property value
  • set - to define a setter method to set the property value
  • JavaScript Getter

In JavaScript, getter methods are used to access the properties of an object. For example,

In the above program, a getter method getName() is created to access the property of an object.

Note: To create a getter method, the get keyword is used.

And also when accessing the value, we access the value as a property.

When you try to access the value as a method, an error occurs.

  • JavaScript Setter

In JavaScript, setter methods are used to change the values of an object. For example,

In the above example, the setter method is used to change the value of an object.

Note: To create a setter method, the set keyword is used.

As shown in the above program, the value of firstName is Monica .

Then the value is changed to Sarah .

Note : Setter must have exactly one formal parameter.

  • JavaScript Object.defineProperty()

In JavaScript, you can also use Object.defineProperty() method to add getters and setters. For example,

In the above example, Object.defineProperty() is used to access and change the property of an object.

The syntax for using Object.defineProperty() is:

The Object.defineProperty() method takes three arguments.

  • The first argument is the objectName.
  • The second argument is the name of the property.
  • The third argument is an object that describes the property.

# Convert an Array to Set in JavaScript

Use the Set() constructor to convert an array to a Set , e.g. const set = new Set(arr); .

The Set() constructor is used to create Set objects that store unique values of any type.

convert an array to a set

The Set object only stores unique values. Even if the supplied array contains duplicates, they don't get added to the Set .

The only parameter the Set() constructor takes is an iterable.

If you need to convert the Set back to an array, use the spread syntax (...) .

The spread syntax (...) unpacks the values of the Set into the new array.

You can also use the Array.from() method to convert the Set back to an array.

The Array.from() method creates an array from the provided iterable.

If you need to convert an array of objects to a Set containing only the values of a specific property, use the Array.map() method.

# Convert an Array of Objects to a Set

To convert an Array of objects to a Set :

  • Use the Array.map() method to iterate over the array.
  • On each iteration, access a specific property and return its value.
  • Use the Set() constructor to convert the array to a Set object.

convert array of objects to set

The function we passed to the Array.map() method gets called with each element (object) in the array.

On each iteration, we access the letter property on the object and return the result.

The output of the Array.map() method is an array containing all of the values of the letter property.

The last step is to pass the array of values to the Set() constructor.

# Convert an Array to a Set using Array.forEach()

This is a three-step process:

  • Declare a new variable that stores an empty Set object.
  • Use the Array.forEach() method to iterate over the array.
  • On each iteration, use the Set.add() method to add the element to the Set .

convert array to set using array foreach

The function we passed to the Array.forEach method gets called with each element in the array.

On each iteration, we use the set.add() method to add the element to a new Set object.

The Set.add method inserts a new element with the supplied value into a Set object, if the value is not already in the Set .

You can also use the Array.reduce() method to convert an array to a Set object.

# Convert an Array to a Set using Array.reduce()

  • Use the Array.reduce() method to iterate over the array.
  • Initialize the accumulator variable to an empty Set .
  • On each iteration, add the element to the Set .

convert array to set using array reduce

The function we passed to the Array.reduce method gets called for each element in the array.

The initial value of the accumulator variable is an empty Set because that's what we passed as the second argument to the Array.reduce() method.

On each iteration, we use the Set.add() method to add the current element to the Set object.

# Add Array of Values to an Existing Set using spread syntax (...)

  • Create a new Set using the Set() constructor.
  • Unpack the values of the existing Set and the array into a new Set .
  • The new Set will contain the values of the original Set and the array.

We created a new Set using the Set() constructor and used the spread syntax (...) to unpack the values of the existing set and the array into the new Set .

Set objects and arrays are iterable, so we are able to use the spread syntax (...) to unpack them into a new Set .

You can also use a for...of loop to add an array of values to an existing Set .

# Add an Array of Values to an Existing Set using a for...of loop

This is a two-step process:

  • Use a for...of loop to iterate over the array.
  • Use the Set.add() method to add each array element to the Set object.

The for...of statement is used to loop over iterable objects like arrays, strings, Map , Set and NodeList objects and generators .

Array.prototype.find()

The find() method of Array instances returns the first element in the provided array that satisfies the provided testing function. If no values satisfy the testing function, undefined is returned.

  • If you need the index of the found element in the array, use findIndex() .
  • If you need to find the index of a value , use indexOf() . (It's similar to findIndex() , but checks each element for equality with the value instead of using a testing function.)
  • If you need to find if a value exists in an array, use includes() . Again, it checks each element for equality with the value instead of using a testing function.
  • If you need to find if any element satisfies the provided testing function, use some() .

A function to execute for each element in the array. It should return a truthy value to indicate a matching element has been found, and a falsy value otherwise. The function is called with the following arguments:

The current element being processed in the array.

The index of the current element being processed in the array.

The array find() was called upon.

A value to use as this when executing callbackFn . See iterative methods .

Return value

The first element in the array that satisfies the provided testing function. Otherwise, undefined is returned.

Description

The find() method is an iterative method . It calls a provided callbackFn function once for each element in an array in ascending-index order, until callbackFn returns a truthy value. find() then returns that element and stops iterating through the array. If callbackFn never returns a truthy value, find() returns undefined . Read the iterative methods section for more information about how these methods work in general.

callbackFn is invoked for every index of the array, not just those with assigned values. Empty slots in sparse arrays behave the same as undefined .

The find() method is generic . It only expects the this value to have a length property and integer-keyed properties.

Find an object in an array by one of its properties

Using arrow function and destructuring, find a prime number in an array.

The following example finds an element in the array that is a prime number (or returns undefined if there is no prime number):

Using the third argument of callbackFn

The array argument is useful if you want to access another element in the array, especially when you don't have an existing variable that refers to the array. The following example first uses filter() to extract the positive values and then uses find() to find the first element that is less than its neighbors.

Using find() on sparse arrays

Empty slots in sparse arrays are visited, and are treated the same as undefined .

Calling find() on non-array objects

The find() method reads the length property of this and then accesses each property whose key is a nonnegative integer less than length .

In this article, we will be discussing the Set object provided by ES6. A set is a collection of items that are unique i.e. no element can be repeated. Set in ES6 are ordered: elements of the set can be iterated in the insertion order. The set can store any type of value whether primitive or objects.

Syntax:  

Parameter: .

  • it : It is an iterable object whose all elements are added to the new set created, If the parameter is not specified or null is passed then a new set created is empty.

Return Value:

A new set object.

Example:  This example shows the implementation of a JavaScript set.

Properties: 

Set.size – It returns the number of elements in the Set.

Methods of Set:  

It adds the new element with a specified value at the end of the Set object.

  • val: It is a value to be added to the set.

Return value:

The set object

Example:  In this example, we are adding values into the set by using add() method.

Set.delete()

It deletes an element with the specified value from the Set object. 

  • val: It is a value to be deleted from the set.

true if the value is successfully deleted from the set else returns false.

Example: In this example, we are deleting the values into the set by using delete() method.

Set.clear()

It removes all the element from the set. 

This method does not take any parameter

Example:  In this example, we are clearing the values into the set by using clear() method.

Set.entries()

It returns an iterator object which contains an array having the entries of the set, in the insertion order. 

It returns an iterator object that contains an array of [value, value] for every element of the set, in the insertion order.  

Example: In this example, we are using enteries() method.

It returns true if the specified value is present in the Set object. 

Syntax:   

  • val: The value to be searched in the Set

True if the value is present else it returns false.

Example:  In this example, we are checking whether the value is present in the set by using has() method.

Set.values()

It returns all the values from the Set in the same insertion order. 

An iterator object that contains all the values of the set in the same order as they are inserted.

It also returns all the values from the Set in the insertion order. 

Note: It is similar to the values() in the case of Sets 

An iterator object that contains all the values of the set in the same order as they are inserted. 

Example:  In this example, we are printing all the values of the set by using keys() method.

Set.forEach()

It executes the given function once for every element in the Set, in the insertion order. 

  • the element key
  • the element value
  • the Set object to be traversed
  • thisargument – Value to be used as this when executing the callback.

Set.prototype[@@iterator]()

It returns a Set iterator function which is values() function by default. 

Return value:  

A Set iterator function and it is values() by default.

Example:  In this example, we are iterating the values from the set.

Set Operations

JavaScript subSet() Method: It returns true if Set A is a subset of Set B .  A Set A is said to be a subset of Set B , if all the elements of Set A is also present in Set B . Now lets implement and use the subset function. 

Example:  In this example, we are checking whether the given subset is present in the given set or not and returning the result according to it.

JavaScript union() Method: It returns a Set which consists of the union of Set A and Set B. A Set is said to be a union of two sets, if it contains all elements of Set A as well as all elements of Set B , but it doesn’t contain duplicate elements. 

If an element is present in both Set A and Set B then the union of Set A and B will contain a single copy of the element. Let’s implement and use the union function 

Example:  In this example, we are merging the two sets.

JavaScript intersection() Method : It returns the intersection of Set A and Set B.  A Set is said to be the intersection of Set A and B if contains an element which is present both in Set A and Set B . Let’s implement and use the intersection function 

Example:  In this example, we are finding the insersection of two sets.

JavaScript difference() Method: It returns the Set which contains the difference between Set A and Set B . A Set is said to be a difference between Set A and B if it contains set of elements e which are present in Set A but not in Set B . Let’s implement and use the difference function 

Example: In this example, we are finding the difference of two sets. 

JavaScript is best known for web page development but it is also used in a variety of non-browser environments. You can learn JavaScript from the ground up by following this JavaScript Tutorial and JavaScript Examples .

JavaScript Array of Objects Tutorial – How to Create, Update, and Loop Through Objects Using JS Array Methods

On average I work with JSON data 18 times a week. And I still need to google for specific ways to manipulate them almost every time. What if there was an ultimate guide that could always give you the answer?

In this article, I'll show you the basics of working with object arrays in JavaScript.

If you ever worked with a JSON structure, you've worked with JavaScript objects. Quite literally. JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation.

Creating an object is as simple as this:

This object represents a car. There can be many types and colors of cars, each object then represents a specific car.

purple

Now, most of the time you get data like this from an external service. But sometimes you need to create objects and their arrays manually. Like I did when I was creating this e-shop:

categories

Considering each category list item looks like this in HTML:

code

I didn't want to have this code repeated 12 times, which would make it unmaintainable.

Creating an array of objects

But let's get back to cars. Let's take a look at this set of cars:

cars

We can represent it as an array this way:

Arrays of objects don't stay the same all the time. We almost always need to manipulate them. So let's take a look at how we can add objects to an already existing array.

Add a new object at the start - Array.unshift

beginning

To add an object at the first position, use Array.unshift .

Add a new object at the end - Array.push

ending

To add an object at the last position, use Array.push .

Add a new object in the middle - Array.splice

middle

To add an object in the middle, use Array.splice . This function is very handy as it can also remove items. Watch out for its parameters:

So if we want to add the red Volkswagen Cabrio on the fifth position, we'd use:

Looping through an array of objects

Let me ask you a question here: Why do you want to loop through an array of objects? The reason I'm asking is that the looping is almost never the primary cause of what we want to achieve.

JavaScript provides many functions that can solve your problem without actually implementing the logic in a general cycle. Let's take a look.

Find an object in an array by its values - Array.find

Let's say we want to find a car that is red. We can use the function Array.find .

cars-colorred

This function returns the first matching element:

It's also possible to search for multiple values:

let car = cars.find(car => car.color === "red" && car.type === "cabrio");

In that case we'll get the last car in the list.

Get multiple items from an array that match a condition - Array.filter

The Array.find function returns only one object. If we want to get all red cars, we need to use Array.filter .

cars-colorred2

Transform objects of an array - Array.map

This is something we need very often. Transform an array of objects into an array of different objects. That's a job for Array.map . Let's say we want to classify our cars into three groups based on their size.

cars-sizes

It's also possible to create a new object if we need more values:

Add a property to every object of an array - Array.forEach

But what if we want the car size too? In that case we can enhance the object for a new property size . This is a good use-case for the Array.forEach function.

Sort an array by a property - Array.sort

When we're done with transforming the objects, we usually need to sort them one way or another.

Typically, the sorting is based on a value of a property every object has. We can use the Array.sort function, but we need to provide a function that defines the sorting mechanism.

Let's say we want to sort the cars based on their capacity in descending order.

cars-sort

The Array.sort compares two objects and puts the first object in the second place if the result of the sorting function is positive. So you can look at the sorting function as if it was a question: Should the first object be placed in second place?

sort

Make sure to always add the case for zero when the compared value of both objects is the same to avoid unnecessary swaps.

Checking if objects in array fulfill a condition - Array.every, Array.includes

Array.every and Array.some come handy when we just need to check each object for a specific condition.

Do we have a red cabrio in the list of cars? Are all cars capable of transporting at least 4 people? Or more web-centric: Is there a specific product in the shopping cart?

You may remember the function Array.includes which is similar to Array.some , but works only for primitive types.

In this article, we went through the basic functions that help you create, manipulate, transform, and loop through arrays of objects. They should cover most cases you will stumble upon.

If you have a use-case that requires more advanced functionality, take a look at this detailed guide to arrays or visit the W3 schools reference .

Or get in touch with me and I will prepare another article :-)

JS Tutorial

Js versions, js functions, js html dom, js browser bom, js web apis, js vs jquery, js graphics, js examples, js references, javascript array methods, javascript array length.

The length property returns the length (size) of an array:

JavaScript Array toString()

The JavaScript method toString() converts an array to a string of (comma separated) array values.

The join() method also joins all array elements into a string.

It behaves just like toString() , but in addition you can specify the separator:

Popping and Pushing

When you work with arrays, it is easy to remove elements and add new elements.

This is what popping and pushing is:

Popping items out of an array, or pushing items into an array.

Advertisement

JavaScript Array pop()

The pop() method removes the last element from an array:

The pop() method returns the value that was "popped out":

JavaScript Array push()

The push() method adds a new element to an array (at the end):

The push() method returns the new array length:

Shifting Elements

Shifting is equivalent to popping, but working on the first element instead of the last.

JavaScript Array shift()

The shift() method removes the first array element and "shifts" all other elements to a lower index.

The shift() method returns the value that was "shifted out":

JavaScript Array unshift()

The unshift() method adds a new element to an array (at the beginning), and "unshifts" older elements:

The unshift() method returns the new array length:

Changing Elements

Array elements are accessed using their index number :

Array indexes start with 0:

[0] is the first array element [1] is the second [2] is the third ...

The length property provides an easy way to append a new element to an array:

JavaScript Array delete()

Array elements can be deleted using the JavaScript operator delete .

Using delete leaves undefined holes in the array.

Use pop() or shift() instead.

Merging (Concatenating) Arrays

The concat() method creates a new array by merging (concatenating) existing arrays:

Example (Merging Two Arrays)

The concat() method does not change the existing arrays. It always returns a new array.

The concat() method can take any number of array arguments:

Example (Merging Three Arrays)

The concat() method can also take strings as arguments:

Example (Merging an Array with Values)

Flattening an array.

Flattening an array is the process of reducing the dimensionality of an array.

The flat() method creates a new array with sub-array elements concatenated to a specified depth.

Browser Support

JavaScript Array flat() is supported in all modern browsers since January 2020:

Splicing and Slicing Arrays

The splice() method adds new items to an array.

The slice() method slices out a piece of an array.

JavaScript Array splice()

The splice() method can be used to add new items to an array:

The first parameter (2) defines the position where new elements should be added (spliced in).

The second parameter (0) defines how many elements should be removed .

The rest of the parameters ("Lemon" , "Kiwi") define the new elements to be added .

The splice() method returns an array with the deleted items:

Using splice() to Remove Elements

With clever parameter setting, you can use splice() to remove elements without leaving "holes" in the array:

The first parameter (0) defines the position where new elements should be added (spliced in).

The second parameter (1) defines how many elements should be removed .

The rest of the parameters are omitted. No new elements will be added.

JavaScript Array slice()

The slice() method slices out a piece of an array into a new array.

This example slices out a part of an array starting from array element 1 ("Orange"):

The slice() method creates a new array.

The slice() method does not remove any elements from the source array.

This example slices out a part of an array starting from array element 3 ("Apple"):

The slice() method can take two arguments like slice(1, 3) .

The method then selects elements from the start argument, and up to (but not including) the end argument.

If the end argument is omitted, like in the first examples, the slice() method slices out the rest of the array.

Automatic toString()

JavaScript automatically converts an array to a comma separated string when a primitive value is expected.

This is always the case when you try to output an array.

These two examples will produce the same result:

All JavaScript objects have a toString() method.

Finding Max and Min Values in an Array

There are no built-in functions for finding the highest or lowest value in a JavaScript array.

You will learn how you solve this problem in the next chapter of this tutorial.

    Set seems like a nice way to create Arrays with guaranteed unique elements, but it does not expose any good way to get properties, except for generator [Set].values, which is called in an awkward way of mySet.values.next ().
