str.charCodeAt() function returns a Unicode character set code unit of the character present at the index in the string specified as the argument. The syntax of the function is as follows:
The only argument to this function is the index of the character in the string whose Unicode is to be used. The range of the index is from 0 to length – 1.
This function returns the Unicode (ranging between 0 and 65535) of the character whose index is provided to the function as the argument. If the index provided is out of range the this function returns NaN.
Examples for the above function are provided below:
Input: var str = 'ephemeral'; print(str.charCodeAt(4)); Output: 109
In this example the function charCodeAt() extracts the character from the string at index 4. Since this character is m, therefore this function returns the Unicode sequence as 109.
Input: var str = 'ephemeral'; print(str.charCodeAt(20)); Output: NaN
In this example the function charCodeAt() extracts the character from the string at index 20. Since the index is out of bounds for the string, therefore this function returns the answer as NaN.
