JavaScript delete object from array | Example code

  • by

JavaScript arrays allow you to add and remove array items (objects) differently. Instead of the delete method, the JavaScript array has a variety of ways you can delete and clear array values. To delete an object from an array in Javascript use:-

  1. array.pop() – The pop() method removes from the end of an Array.
  2. array.splice() – The splice() method deletes from a specific Array index.
  3. array.shift() – The shift() method removes from the beginning of an Array.
  4. array.slice() – The slice() method deletes unnecessary items and returns required items.
  5. array.filter() – allows you to remove elements from an Array programmatically.
