Websolutionstuff | Aug-18-2020 | Categories : PHP jQuery

In this example, I will show you how to check if an array is empty or null in javascript or jquery. When we are working in javascript and you want to loop the array at that time we need to check whether an array is empty or not. So, it doesn't return an error. There are many ways to check javascript array is empty or not.

So, let's see how to check if the array contains a value in jquery or jquery check if the value exists in an array of objects.

Using JQuery isEmptyObject()

 This method is reliable to check whether the array is empty or contains elements.

<script src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var Array1 = [1, 2, 3];
    var Array2 = [];

    console.log(jQuery.isEmptyObject(Array1)); // returns false
    console.log(jQuery.isEmptyObject(Array2)); // returns true


Checking with the condition if an array is not undefined

Many times we are required to check that array should not be an undefined object and has at least one element. This can be also checked with typeof.

<script type="text/javascript"> 
    var undefinedAray = undefined;

    if (typeof undefinedAray !== "undefined" && undefinedAray.length > 0) {
        // undefinedAray is not empty
    } else {
        // undefinedAray is empty or undefined


Checking by array length

 We can check the array with length, if the array length is 0 then the array is empty.

<script type="text/javascript">
    var Arraylegnth = [1];

    if (Arraylegnth && Arraylegnth.length > 0) {
        // Arraylegnth is not empty
    } else {
        // Arraylegnth is empty
