The String charCodeAt() method

Published Feb 15 2019

Psssst! The 2023 WEB DEVELOPMENT BOOTCAMP is starting on FEBRUARY 01, 2023! SIGNUPS ARE NOW OPEN to this 10-weeks cohort course. Learn the fundamentals, HTML, CSS, JS, Tailwind, React, Next.js and much more! ✨

Return the character code at the index i. Similar to charAt(), except it returns the Unicode 16-bit integer representing the character:

'Flavio'.charCodeAt(0) //70
'Flavio'.charCodeAt(1) //108
'Flavio'.charCodeAt(2) //97

Calling toString() after that will return the hexadecimal number, which you can lookup in Unicode tables like this.
