unshift Method (JavaScript)

Inserts new elements at the start of an array.

arrayObj.unshift([item1[, item2 [, . . . [, itemN]]]])

arrayObj

Required. An Array object.

item1, item2,. . ., itemN

Optional. Elements to insert at the start of the Array.

The unshift method inserts elements into the start of an array, so they appear in the same order in which they appear in the argument list.

The following example illustrates the use of the unshift method.

var ar = new Array();
ar.unshift(10, 11);
ar.unshift(12, 13, 14);
document.write(ar.toString());

// Output: 12,13,14,10,11
