JavaScript Array Comparisions And Display Values From Another

I have a case where I need to compare between two arrays and display values from another.; For example, I have two arrays:

let a = ['a','b','c'];
let b = ['textA' 'textB', ' '];

So, I am basically trying to loop over the array b and display value like this:

   textA
   textB
   C

So, when there are any empty values found in array b, display the same indexed values from array a.

Can anybody help with this. Thanks in advance.

Answer

you can :

  • trim the value to see if there is empty or only space elem.trim().length
  • if string is empty check if data in other array exist if (!elem.trim().length && a[index])

let a = ['a','b','c'];
let b = ['textA', 'textB', ' '];

b.forEach((elem, index) => {
  if (!elem.trim().length && a[index]) {
    console.log(a[index]);
  } else {
    console.log(elem);
  }
});

One other solution consist to create a result array with array.map and display all key of this new array

let a = ['a','b','c'];
let b = ['textA', 'textB', ' '];


let result = b.map((elem, index) => (!elem.trim().length && a[index]) ? a[index] : elem);

console.log(result);
