catch forEach last iteration

catch forEach last iteration

arr = [1,2,3];
arr.forEach(function(i){
// last iteration
});

How to catch when the loop ending? I can do if(i == 3) but I might don’t know what is the number of my array.

Solution 1:

Updated answer for ES6+ is here.


arr = [1, 2, 3]; 

arr.forEach(function(i, idx, array){
   if (idx === array.length - 1){ 
       console.log("Last callback call at index " + idx + " with value " + i ); 
   }
});

would output:

Last callback call at index 2 with value 3

The way this works is testing arr.length against the current index of the array, passed to the callback function.

Solution 2:

The 2018 ES6+ ANSWER IS:

    const arr = [1, 2, 3];

    arr.forEach((val, key, arr) => {
      if (Object.is(arr.length - 1, key)) {
        // execute last item logic
        console.log(`Last callback call at index ${key} with value ${val}` ); 
      }
    });
