Find first element in JSON using object property

Hello friends, In this article, we will use find method of javascript for finding first element in JSON by object property value.

The javascript find() method is used to find the first element from the array that satisfies the condition implemented by a callback function.

If more than one element satisfies the condition then the first element satisfying the condition is returned.


var resultArray = givenArray.find(callback(element, index, array),thisArg)


Function is a predicate, to test each element of the array. Return true to keep the element otherwise false. It accepts three arguments.

element:  The Current element on which is being processed in the array.

index:  It is Optional argument, The index of the current element which is being processed in the array.

array:  It is Optional argument, On which callback was invoked by filter.

thisArg:  It is Optional argument, Value to use as this when executing callback.

Return:  A new array with the elements that pass the test. If no elements pass the test, an 'undefined' will be returned.

var v = [23,45,6,7,8,89,9,5,3,2,1,1,2,45,6,7,5,3,4,6]; var f = function(e) { return e>10; } var r = v.find(f) document.write(r); -- OR  var v = [23,45,6,7,8,89,9,5,3,2,1,1,2,45,6,7,5,3,4,6]; var r = v.find(e=>e>10) document.write(r);


var v = [23,45,6,7,8,89,9,5,3,2,1,1,2,45,6,7,5,3,4,6]; var f = function(e) { return e>100; } var r = v.find(f) document.write(r); -- OR  var v = [23,45,6,7,8,89,9,5,3,2,1,1,2,45,6,7,5,3,4,6]; var r = v.find(e=>e>100) document.write(r);

OUTPUT: undefined

Getting first even element

var v = [23,45,6,7,8,89,9,5,3,2,1,1,2,45,6,7,5,3,4,6]; var f = function(e,i,a) { return e%2==0; } var r = v.find(f) document.write(r); --OR  var v = [23,45,6,7,8,89,9,5,3,2,1,1,2,45,6,7,5,3,4,6]; var r = v.find(e=>e%2==0) document.write(r);


Lets suppose we have an JSON we want to find first element using any of its property.

var color = [     {       "color": "black",       "category": "hue",       "type": "primary",       "code": {         "rgba": [255,255,255,1],         "hex": "#000"       }     },     {       "color": "white",       "category": "value",       "code": {         "rgba": [0,0,0,1],         "hex": "#FFF"       }     },     {       "color": "red",       "category": "hue",       "type": "primary",       "code": {         "rgba": [255,0,0,1],         "hex": "#FF0"       }     },     {       "color": "blue",       "category": "hue",       "type": "primary",       "code": {         "rgba": [0,0,255,1],         "hex": "#00F"       }     },     {       "color": "yellow",       "category": "hue",       "type": "primary",       "code": {         "rgba": [255,255,0,1],         "hex": "#FF0"       }     },     {       "color": "green",       "category": "hue",       "type": "secondary",       "code": {         "rgba": [0,255,0,1],         "hex": "#0F0"       }     },   ]; const findColorByName = function (arr, propertyName, propertyValue) {         return arr.find((o) => { return o[propertyName] === propertyValue; });     }; var f = findColorByName(color,"color","red"); console.log(JSON.stringify(f));

OUTPUT: {"color":"red","category":"hue","type":"primary","code":{"rgba":[255,0,0,1],"hex":"#FF0"}}
