JavaScript | Number.isFinite() function

The Number.isfinite() method in JavaScript is used to check whether the passed value is a finite number or not.
The Number.isfinite() method is different from the isfinite() function since this method doesn’t forcibly convert the parameter to a number and it does not return true for any value that is not of the type number. On the other hand the global isfinite() function converts the tested value to a number first and then tests it.

Syntax:

Number.isFinite(value)

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter value. It is the number which the user wants to check for finiteness.

Return Value: The number.isfinite() function returns a boolean value i.e. either true or false. It returns true if the passed value is of the type Number, and equates to a finite number else it returns false.

Below are some examples to illustrate the Number.isFinite() function in JavaScript:



  • Passing a negative number as an argument: If the negative number passed to the function is finite then the function will return true otherwise false.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write(Number.isFinite(-2));          
    </script>

    Output:

    true
  • Passing a positive number as an argument: If the positive number passed to the function is finite then the function will return true otherwise false.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write(Number.isFinite(2));          
    </script>

    Output:

    true
  • Passing zero as an argument: If zero is passed to the function then the function will return true as zero is a finite number.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write(Number.isFinite(0));          
    </script>

    Output:

    true
  • Passing an equation as an argument: If the equation evaluates to a finite number then the function will return true otherwise false.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write(Number.isFinite(7-3+2));          
    </script>

    Output:

    true
  • Passing an equation (resulting in inifinte) as an argument: If the equation after evaluating does not gives a finite numeric value then the function will return false.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write(Number.isFinite(0/0));          
    </script>

    Output:

    false
  • Passing a word as an argument: Since a word is not of type integer, so the Number.isFinite() will not convert it to number and will return false.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write(Number.isFinite("strong"));          
    </script>

    Output:

    false
  • Passing number(string) as an argument: Since a string is not of type integer, so the Number.isFinite() will not convert it to number and will return false.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write(Number.isFinite("5"));          
    </script>

    Output:

    false
