The JavaScript string has some of the properties of array. You may access a character of the string using index.

In order to find the correct index of a character , you can use indexOf() method of string class.

Here is an example program to demonstrate the usage of this method.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
   <title>JS: indexOf Method</title>
   <meta charset="utf-8">
</head>
<body>
<script>
var answer = "Lion is the king of Jungle!";
var res = answer.indexOf('king');
console.log(res);
//output = 12
</script>
</body>
</html>

The above program will result in 12. The array or string index always start at 0 in JavaScript programming.

The substring ‘king’ starts at index 12. The script goes through all the characters one-by-one and finally reaches the character ‘k’ which is at index 12.
