Javascript Question

Javascript - Reindexing an array

Here is my example. Can you tell me how can I make the array have consecutive keys

array[0]
array[1]
array[2]


when I have

var testArray = new Array();
testArray[3]="qwerty";
testArray[7]="asdfgh";
testArray[13]="zxcvbn";
var testString = testArray.join();


Editor's note: The asker wants to reindex his array.

Answer

If you don't mind using javascript 1.6: (note: this code uses the jQUery library)

var testArray = new Array();
testArray[3]="qwerty";
testArray[7]="asdfgh";
testArray[13]="zxcvbn";
var testString = testArray.filter(function (item) { return item != undefined }).join();

$(function(){
    $('#write').text(testString);
});

filter prototype:

if (!Array.prototype.filter)
{
  Array.prototype.filter = function(fun /*, thisp */)
  {
    "use strict";

    if (this === void 0 || this === null)
      throw new TypeError();

    var t = Object(this);
    var len = t.length >>> 0;
    if (typeof fun !== "function")
      throw new TypeError();

    var res = [];
    var thisp = arguments[1];
    for (var i = 0; i < len; i++)
    {
      if (i in t)
      {
        var val = t[i]; // in case fun mutates this
        if (fun.call(thisp, val, i, t))
          res.push(val);
      }
    }

    return res;
  };
}
