In this post we can find different ways of how to parse integer number with parseInt function in JavaScript.

Integer parsing example

This section shows how to convert with built-in parseInt method some text to integer.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

var text = '123';
var number = parseInt(text);

console.log(number === 123); // true

Using parseInt() method we can also parse floating point number and it will be rounded to integer, look at below example.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

var text = '123.12';
var number = parseInt(text);

console.log(text);
console.log(number);
console.log(number === 123); // true

Parsing number with unit examples

parseInt method during conversion ignores all characters that are not digits and occur after number. It makes possible to parse numbers with units.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

var number = parseInt('1px'); // pixels (px)
console.log(number === 1); // true

var number = parseInt('2cm'); // centimeters (cm)
console.log(number === 2); // true

var number = parseInt('3in'); // inches (in)
console.log(number === 3); // true

var number = parseInt('4%'); // percentages (%)
console.log(number === 4); // true
