JavaScript Array findIndex()

The findIndex() method in JavaScript is used to find the index of the first element in an array that satisfies a specified condition. This method returns the index of the first element in the array that passes the test, or -1 if no such element is found.

Here is an example of how the findIndex() method works:

const array1 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];

const result = array1.findIndex(element => element > 3);

// the result will be: 3

In the code example above, we first declare an array called array1 that contains the numbers 1 through 5. We then use the findIndex() method to find the index of the first element in the array that is greater than 3. The findIndex() method takes a callback function as an argument, and this callback function is called for each element in the array. The callback function should return a Boolean value indicating whether the element satisfies the specified condition. In this case, the callback function simply checks if the element is greater than 3.

As a result of calling the findIndex() method, the result variable will be set to 3, which is the index of the first element in the array1 array that is greater than 3. If no element in the array satisfies the specified condition (i.e., if no element is greater than 3), the result variable would be set to -1.
