I am trying to find the index of all the instances of an element, say, "Nano", in a JavaScript array.

var Cars = ["Nano", "Volvo", "BMW", "Nano", "VW", "Nano"];

I tried jQuery.inArray, or similarly, .indexOf(), but it only gave the index of the last instance of the element, i.e. 5 in this case.

How do I get it for all instances?


.indexOf() method有一个可选的第二个参数,该参数指定开始搜索的索引,因此您可以在循环中调用它来查找特定值的所有实例:

function getAllIndexes(arr, val) {
    var indexes = [], i = -1;
    while ((i = arr.indexOf(val, i+1)) != -1){
    return indexes;

var indexes = getAllIndexes(Cars, "Nano");

You don't really make it clear how you want to use the indexes, so my function returns them as an array (or returns an empty array if the value isn't found), but you could do something else with the individual index values inside the loop.

UPDATE: As per VisioN's comment, a simple for loop would get the same job done more efficiently, and it is easier to understand and therefore easier to maintain:

function getAllIndexes(arr, val) {
    var indexes = [], i;
    for(i = 0; i < arr.length; i++)
        if (arr[i] === val)
    return indexes;
