JavaScript array remove duplicate

     

In JavaScript array we can also detect and remove the duplicate elements by creating a user defined function. Since there is not any built-in method in the JavaScript array to remove duplicate elements therefore we have created a function which will remove all the duplicated elements from the passed array. Code for the defined function is as given below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

function removeDuplicateElement(arrayName)
  {
  var newArray=new Array();
  label:for(var i=0; i<arrayName.length;i++ )
  {  
  for(var j=0; j<newArray.length;j++ )
  {
  if(newArray[j]==arrayName[i]) 
  continue label;
  }
  newArray[newArray.length] = arrayName[i];
  }
  return newArray;
  }

In this removeDuplicateElement(arrayName) we have passed the arrayName (Array Object) at which the operation is to be performed. Here is the full HTML example code as follows:

<html>
  <head>
  <title>
  JavaScript array remove duplicate element
  </title>
  <script type="text/javascript">
  var arr = new Array(7);
  arr[0]="Rose";
  arr[1]="India";
  arr[2]="Technologies";
  arr[3]="Pvt";
  arr[4]="Ltd";
  arr[5]="India";
  arr[6]="Rose";
  function removeDuplicateElement(arrayName)
  {
  var newArray=new Array();
  label:for(var i=0; i<arrayName.length;i++ )
  {  
  for(var j=0; j<newArray.length;j++ )
  {
  if(newArray[j]==arrayName[i]) 
  continue label;
  }
  newArray[newArray.length= arrayName[i];
  }
  return newArray;
  }
  document.writeln("Array before calling removeDuplicateElement()
   method is =<b>"
+arr+"</b></br>");
  document.writeln("Array after calling removeDuplicateElement()
   method is =<b>"
+removeDuplicateElement(arr)+"</b></br>");
  </script>
  </head>
<body bgcolor="#ddcdff">
