JavaScript parseInt() Function

The parseInt() function parses a string and returns an integer.

The radix parameter is used to specify which numeral system to be used, for example, a radix of 16 (hexadecimal) indicates that the number in the string should be parsed from a hexadecimal number to a decimal number.

If the radix parameter is omitted, JavaScript assumes the following:

  • If the string begins with “0x”, the radix is 16 (hexadecimal)
  • If the string begins with “0”, the radix is 8 (octal). This feature is deprecated
  • If the string begins with any other value, the radix is 10 (decimal)

Syntax

parseInt(string, radix)

Example

<script language="JavaScript">

document.write(parseInt("10") + "<br />");
document.write(parseInt("10.33") + "<br />");
document.write(parseInt("34 45 66") + "<br />");
document.write(parseInt(" 60 ") + "<br />");
document.write(parseInt("40 years") + "<br />");
document.write(parseInt("He was 40") + "<br />");

document.write("<br />");
document.write(parseInt("10",10)+ "<br />");
document.write(parseInt("010")+ "<br />");
document.write(parseInt("10",8)+ "<br />");
document.write(parseInt("0x10")+ "<br />");
document.write(parseInt("10",16)+ "<br />");

</script>
