We can use JavaScript to convert a double to an integer by using the JavaScript parseInt() method.

var num = parseInt(20.12345);

The above code would return the number 20.


The parseInt() JavaScript method will parse the value given to it and then return the Integer value. If no integer is found at the start, NaN will be returned.

Some other examples of the parseInt() method are below:

var num1 = parseInt(40.7245);
var num2 = parseInt(.273983678);
var num3 = parseInt(-1.28980);
var num4 = parseInt(-.93898);
var num5 = parseInt("$11.345");

console.log(num1);
console.log(num2);
console.log(num3);
console.log(num4);
console.log(num5);

#Output
40
0
-1
0
NaN

Note the parseInt() JavaScript method is similar to the parseFloat() method, the main difference being that parseInt() will only return the Integer, while parseFloat() will return decimal values as well.

Below is the JavaScript code which takes the user input using an onclick event, and uses the parseInt() method on that user input. We update the results below using the textContent property.

function convertDoubleToInt(){
  document.getElementById("results").textContent = parseInt(Number(document.getElementById("userVal").value));
};

The final code and output for this example is below:
