jQuery Create Array From String

Simple jQuery code snippet to create an array from a string. Convert your string words into an array using jQuery split() command which is like the PHP explode() method.

var numbersString = "1,2,3,4,5,6";
var numbersArray = numbersString.split(',');


You can then loop through the values of the array like so:

$.each(numbersArray, function(index, value) {
  alert(index + ': ' + value);
});

You can also join back your array items like so:

var numbersArray = new Array("1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6");
var numbersString = numbersArray.join(',');
alert(numbersString);
//alerts 1,2,3,4,5,6

Don’t forget to put your jQuery code inside a document ready function. See 4 different jQuery document ready examples for more info.
