Remove Specific Value from Array

var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
var removeItem = 2;   
arr = $.grep(arr, function(value) {
  return value != removeItem;


  1. Missing semicolon on the first line, other than that, cool beans

    Why not use native functions?
    var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
    var removeItem = 2;
    arr.splice(arr.indexOf(removeItem ), 1);

    Exist Splice() method, the method it remove item from the index in the array.

    var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
    var removindexitem = 2;

    arr.splice(removindexitem );

      You would need to know the index of the value in the array for this to work. This is not always guaranteed, plus also native indexOf does not work on versions of IE below IE9.

    array.pull(value); //remove
    array.push(value); //add

Posting Code

  • Use Markdown, and it will escape the code for you, like `<div class="cool">`.
  • Use triple-backticks for blocks of code.
      <h1>multi-line block of code</h1>
      <span>be cool yo.</span>
  • Otherwise, escape your code, like <code>&lt;div class="cool"&gt;</code>. Markdown is just easier though.
