How can I remove a particular element from an array in JavaScript or JQuery?Ask Questions

 Posted on 09/16/2019

I have an array of numbers, and I'm using the .push() method to add elements to it.

Is there a simple way to remove a specific element from an array? The equivalent of something like array.remove(number);.

I have to use core JavaScript - frameworks are not allowed.

Remove Item in Array

var arr = ["jQuery", "JavaScript", "HTML", "Ajax", "Css"];

var itemtoRemove = "HTML";

arr.splice($.inArray(itemtoRemove, arr), 1);

You can do something like this:

var y = [1, 2, 2, 3, 2]

var removeItem = 2;

y = jQuery.grep(y, function(value) {

return value != removeItem;



[1, 3]
