char At

Get a character (letter, number, or symbol) from a place in the text string.


You can find out which character is at any place in some text. You might have text thats says "Hello there!". The character at position 6 is 't'. The word “Hello” plus the space have positions 0 - 5, so, ‘t’ is at position 6. To get the character at this position, the letter 't', you could use a blocks like this:

let greeting = "Hello there!";
let tee = greeting.charAt(6);


  • index: the number for the position in the text string to return a character for.


  • a single character string that is from the selected position in the text string.


Make a funny new sentence from an existing sentence by choosing every other letter.

let sentence = "Cinnamon vanilla latte";
let funnySentence = "";
for (let i = 0; i < sentence.length; i++) {
    if (i % 2 > 0) {
        funnySentence = funnySentence + sentence.charAt(i);
