      console.log("Array is empty", myArray)




JavaScript check if Array is empty

Check if an array is empty or exists

if (typeof image_array !== 'undefined' && array.length > 0) {
    // the array is defined and has at least one element

Do the check for undefined first. If you do it the another way, it will generate an error if the array is undefined.

if (array === undefined || array.length == 0) {
    // array empty or does not exist

It’s important to check for undefined before performing any operations on an array to avoid errors. This is especially crucial when accessing array elements or using array methods.
